Defn: a human male displaying evidence of devolution - exhibits distinctive "caveman-like" tendencies. This man often dribbles in public places; cannot drink a beverage without spilling it on himself, the floor or someone else; may also run into objects like lampposts & bushes; has a definite "sloopish & short legged" running style that is slow and low to the ground, often resulting in the dragging of knuckles.

These throwback neanderthals, along with their questionable diet, should clearly be avoided.

Pikes Peak Treeline Run

I got a little high on Sunday.

12, 092 feet maximum elevation - according to the Garmin.  I started about 5800 feet below at the starting line for the Pikes Peak Marathon - 10 miles on the trail to get there, 10 miles back - taking with me a little sunburn and a weary, tired body.

Training for the marathon hasn't started officially - but yesterdays run / hike goes in the bank. 

I made the turnaround right near treeline - took some photos....
The Summit - approx 3 more miles of trail, + 2000' & 16 Golden Stairs to get up there.

The trail was quite snow covered above Barr Camp

These people were blazing their own trail down from the Summit
