                   Workout protocols
1: 30 minutes alternating 1 minute hard, 1 minute easy
   up the Barr Trail from Hydro Street
2: Tempo run from Hydro Street to No Name Creek or 30
   minutes, whichever comes first
T: Some kind of taper run
P: Party:-) Incline Club party is counted in ranking
1 Ordered by # of runs. Ties broken by most recent run and then by the # of runs in a row. After that the names appear in alphabetical order.

11/15/03 Sat: 13 ICers met at No Name Creek for some serious trail work. We replaced the smashed culvert with a brand new one. We also brought in a backhoe to dig out the creek downstream of the culvert. While the ice may still run over the trail at the culvert we don’t think it will run down the Barr Trail anymore:-)

11/1/03 Sat: Foggy and 31 degrees. A layer of ice had formed on everything. However that did not stop 28 ICers from meeting at the Barr Trail trailhead to carry 75 new rails to their designated spots along the trail. One hour later the ice was melting and the task was done. Some of us even went for a run:-)

9/1/03 Mon: For the 3rd year in a row the Incline Club staffed the 2 mile aid station in the American Discovery Trail Marathon. Here is a group photo of the crew that got up early and braved the FOG!!!

8/21/03 Thur: A new IC party record was set when at least 95 came out for food fun and awards. 28 pizzas and a ton of snacks and drinks were killed off by the group. There were two shoe toss competitions for IC shirts. Finally, the following 25 people received IC awards for coming to 45 or more workouts for the year; Brenda and Joe Cowell (perfect streaks), John O'Donnell, Matt Carpenter, Fred Wright (Driven Award), Kyla Carpenter, Yvonne Carpenter, Kees Guijt, Bryan Willis, Jonathan Veteto, Rick Crawford, Ronald Garcia, Valerie Prothe, Andy Kovats, Jacki Burnans, Rick Pearcy, ANdy Dillon, Sarah Altonen, Kim Kitchen Darrell Weaver, Larry Miller, Gordon Barnett, David Hendrix, Gina Basile and Harry Harcrow. The club is now in off-season mode. The next club run will be on the last Sunday in November!

8/16-17/03 Sat/Sun: ICers cleaned up at the PPA/M/D and Leadville. In all at least 143 ICers took part in one of those events. Here is a list of IC award winners from the PPA/M/D:

8/14/03 Thur: 43 ICers got together for a time check - the last club workout of the season. Ascent runners checked their split time from the race start to Ruxton Ave while Marathon runners went on to Hydro Street. It feels awesome to get to run such a short little workout. Bring on the PPA/M/D!

8/10/03 Sun: At least 62 ICers got a surprise on Pikes Peak today. The road was shut down at the 18 mile mark due to yesterday’s snow. Most of us did not even blink and just ran up the last mile of the Crags trail to the summit and headed on over to the Barr Trail. However some waited out the 2.5 hour delay in their car. Others started to wait out the delay but gave up and went home or ended up doing the Crags trail after all. Winter in August - welcome to Pikes Peak. The Barr Trail was fine and after a short workout quite a few of us used rakes and picks to try and make it even better. Ready or not it is PPA/M/D time!!!

8/7/03 Thur: 51 ICers came out for the last full Thursday workout of the season. We ended with a 30 minute tempo run up the Barr Trail. We did cut the Hydro Street hills in half however and it was a joy to go home after just 5:-) In other news, we started passing out IC shirts today!!!

8/4/03 Mon: Just to follow up on the note yesterday about the fire. It was contained to about 2-3 acres. A lightning strike on Saturday evening is the suspected cause.

8/3/03 Sun: The Incline Club was part of a photo essay in Denver Post! At least 62 ICers were on the mountain today. An awesome rain storm last night left the trail damp and easy to run today. Most started from either Elk Park or the summit. About 6 of us did some trail work on the final couple of switch-backs. On the way down the mountain we spotted a fire burning above Ute Pass Trail. Looks like plenty of fire fighters were already there. Will have to watch this one because that is some steep hillside and it just depends on the wind I would guess. I would also guess this got started by last night’s lightning storm.

7/31/03 Thur: 53 showed up for 30 minutes of 1 minute hard, 1 minute easy. 10 Hydro Hills rounded out the workout. Only 1 more week of hard training to go for the PPA/M

7/27/03 Sun: At least 53 ICers were on Pikes Peak today but because people are running different sections at different times it is hard to tell for sure how many more were out there. The weather was perfect for running today with the clouds keeping things cool down on the Ws.

7/24/03 Thur: 54 came out for a tempo run starting at Hydro Street. The trail was very dry today and quite a few people reported dry throats within a few minutes of starting. That did not stop some from setting PRs however. 10 Hydro hill repeats finished the workout.

7/20/03 Sun: At least 65 ICers were on the mountain today and possibly more because they took on Pikes Peak from several fronts. Most started at Elk Park but a bunch also went from the bottom while still others were doing repeats on the top miles. Larry Miller and Andy Dimmen moved several rocks off of our mile including the gonzo one that had been blocking the way for several weeks now.

7/17/03 Thur: 49 of us jumped back into the swing of things with 30 mins of 1 min hard, 1 minute easy. It was a hot one for sure and the 10 repeats on Hydro Hill felt like the slow bake.

7/13/03 Sun: With 27 volunteering and another 91 running a total of 118 ICers (a new record for a race) took part in the 4th annual Barr Trail Mountain Race. A boatload of awards were taken by the club and IC shirts were everywhere. Now we get ready for the PPA/M!!!

7/10/03 Thur: Thanks to this weekend’s BTMR most of the 51 who showed up got to do a taper run. We did a time check on the first switch-back and that was about the extent of the day. Those not racing on the weekend went for the full 30 minute tempo run. It was nice to pass up Hydro Street on the way down:-)

7/6/03 Sun: With about 30 ICers running the Summer Round Up 12K and several others doing other races, 29 ICers were left to take on Pikes Peak. The snow report goes like this: there is none thanks to all the shoveling that has been going on up there! This moved things up by about a week it was guessed although to be fair all the hard work did make it passable for an extra month! We still need to get those 2 big nasty rocks off of our mile. At least the folks at Barr Camp cut out the tree that was just above the Bottomless Pit sign:-)

7/3/03 Thur: 46 came out for some 1 on, 1 off today. While quite a few did 30 minutes of it many of us just did 10 as a taper for upcoming races on the weekend. It was also nice to only do a few Hydro Street Hell repeats:-)

6/29/03 Sun: 63 ICers were all over Pikes Peak today with about 40 starting from Elk Park or the summit. There are only 19 steps in the snow before the 2 mile and 16 before the one mile. Snow is also not really a factor on the top mile any more after 6 of us got busy with the shovels. We also moved a ton of rocks but two really big rocks that fell in the last week on the approach to the 16 Golden Stairs will need to wait for another day when we bring up a jack!

6/26/03 Thur: 58 came out for a 30 minute tempo run up the Barr Trail. 10 Hydro Street hill repeats rounded out the workout. A good run by quite a few ICers as the racing season fast approaches.

6/22/03 Sun: 65 had a perfect weather day for a run on Pikes Peak. Snow in the same spots as last week but much less. Only 57 steps before the 2 mile sign and 61 soon after it. Even the evil traverse before the 16 Golden Stairs is melting out!

6/19/03 Thur: 49 showed up and got wet. By the end of the 30 minutes of 1 minute hard, 1 minute easy it was really dumping. Hydro Street Hill repeats were cold and wet and the cool-down to the park was really wet. Did I mention that it was wet? What a great run:-)

6/15/03 Sun: 85 ICers were all over Pikes Peak today including some Elk Parkers. Perfect weather for sure. The snow report goes like this: There is no snow until about 1/4 mile before the 2 mile to summit sign. Here there are two patches that took 117 steps total. There are several patches on the first 1/4 mile of the 2 mile traverse. These took 88 steps total. None of the snow to this point presents any problem. The next patch is on the big traverse under the 16 Golden Stairs and remains a mess with people using several routes. The snow is ice packed so trying to go the right way where no one has gone is not advised. Some more small patches just before the 16 Golden Stairs then more before/after the flat traverse. Snow is not really an issue from the Fred Barr sign up. Yes, this report looks very similar to 2 weeks ago. However with the amount of snow that has fallen up there in the last 2 weeks it is amazing to see that there has been good progress on the snow melt front. All and all the snow is in the same places but just less of it:-)

6/12/03 Thur: 48 ICers dodged the weather bullet today! A few hours earlier and it would have been hail. A few hours later it would have been rain and lightning. However the cool damp air was perfect for running and quite a few nailed some PRs. 10 evil Hydro Hill repeats rounded out the day.

6/8/03 Sun: While about 45 ICers were running the Garden of The Gods 10 Miler another 46 came out for some running on Pikes Peak. It was a perfect weather day for training or racing and either way you would have been a fool to sleep in today!

6/5/03 Orders are now being taken for club shirts. Orders must be in and paid for my June 22nd to get put on the list.

6/5/03 Thur: 52 timed the weather perfectly and missed about 12 hours worth of rain. While today’s protocol was 30 mins of 1 min hard, 1 min easy many in the group did a shorter 10 minute version to taper for weekend races including the Garden of the Gods 10 mile. Those people also got to skip most of the Hydro Street hill repeats as well.

6/1/03 Sun: The first day of June brought out 68 ICers for a run on Pikes Peak. The weather turned ugly forcing some who had planned on going higher around. The snow report goes like this: NO snow until 1/4 mile before the 2 mile to the summit sign. This one is well traveled and no problem. A 1 on a 5 scale. The are a few patches soon after the 2 mile sign for about 1/4 mile. One of these is a 3 on the scale. There is no snow of significance from 1.75 until .75 to go. The big traverse to the right under the 16 golden stairs is a mess with several trails to choose from. For those not used to this type of thing I would give it a 5 on the fear factor scale and if you fall you will slide for a while - into the rocks! A few more patches under the 16 Golden Stairs sign which are 2s. The approach to the 16 Golden Stars has a couple of ugly ones that could be called 4s. No Snow in the 16 Golden Stairs. The flat traverse to the Fred Barr sign is also a mess with the main route missing 3 of the trail’s switch-backs. The quicker we use the correct route the quicker the snow will be gone! Snow is not an issue from the Fed Barr Sign up. This is because ICer Craig Burbank has SHOVELED a path that in one spot is 4 feet deep! All and all for those that don’t mind going across the occasional traverse there is no reason whatsoever not to head up. For the more timid I would say 1-2 more weeks and you will be fine. For the really squeamish give it 2-3 weeks and it won’t be an issue — Craig and his shovel are working their way down the trail and Mr. Sun is kicking butt too:-) John Mills files this snow report for the Elk Park trail: Snow report is there isn’t any. Perhaps two steps were in snow. It has all melted. The trail is in great shape save one tree down across the trail about midway.

5/29/03 Thur: 60, the largest Thursday group of the year, came out today. The protocol was a 30 minute tempo run up the Barr Trail. It was rather hot but those who ran smart were rewarded by getting farther up the trail. Hydro Street was busy with all of us doing our 8 hill repeats. Next month it will be 10 repeats. Jackie Burhans was today’s T-shirt winner.

5/25/03 Sun: 72 came out for an awesome day to run above the clouds — literally. Just above Barr Camp we busted out into the sun. Looking East, the only thing above the clouds was 10,707' Camerons Cone which was a club run several weeks ago. On the way back down the clouds really got thick (perhaps we could call it fog now) and around No Name visibility was only about 20 feet. An awesome day for sure! The snow report goes like this. No snow till Barr Camp. A small patch across the stream right after the camp. None until the small foot bridge halfway to the Bottomless Pit Sign. No more until you get into the thick trees on the first long switchback after the sign. Fairly patchy but very runnable the final 5-6 switchbacks to the A-frame. David Reily was today’s T-shirt winner.

5/22/03 Thur: 52 made it up to Hydro Street for 30 minutes of 1 minute hard, 1 minute easy. Quite a few report that they are getting their pacing down for this workout. The trail was very dry today which made the downhill a little more dicey. 8 Hydro Street hill repeats rounded out the day.

5/20/03 The Incline is back in the news again. A few years later and the same old story. Note: The Incline Club no longer does the Incline as a club run...

5/18/03 Sun: 63 came out for a run up to the Bottomless Pit sign although many called it a day at Barr Camp. Overcast skies helped on what was otherwise a fairly hot day. One ICer who made it all the way to the A-frame reports that from the pit sign to the A-frame is about 30% snow but it is hard and easy to run on. It is also melting rather fast. Brenda Cowell won today’s T-shirt although it should be noted that her husband was the one who drew her number...

5/15/03 Thur: While the ominous weather may have scared some off the 45 ICers who showed were treated to perfect running conditions and cool crisp mountain air. A 30 minute tempo run went rather well for many and it was nice to have a little traction on the trail thanks to the dampness. The 8 Hydro Street hill repeats were as evil as ever. Fred Wright was today’s T-shirt winner.

5/11/03 Sun: 71 ICers and a frog showed up for a Mother’s Day run on Pikes Peak. For the 2nd year in a row a couple of us used the occasion to summit the peak. It was a cold day to do it for sure but the frog needed to go for a run. The summit house has been remodeled and the doughnuts taste as good as ever! Joe Cowell won today’s T-shirt drawing.

5/8/03 Thur: For the first time in 7 years the sign-in sheet got left at the starting area of the run. However it was still there several hours later and 50 ICers still got their *s! 30 minutes of 1 minute hard, 1 minute easy was the pain of choice today and pain it was. 8 Hydro Street hill repeats rounded out the workout for most although three opted for another run up towards No Name.

5/4/03 Sun: 72 ICers split into two groups today. One group went on the more traditional club runs and the other went for something a little more on the wild side. This group of about 20 headed off and up to 10,707' Camerons Cone. Although a long steep run, 11 made the summit where we proceeded to pick up broken glass and trash left there by some lowlife scum of the Earth types. The views from Camerons are some of my favorite and it was a perfect day for checking them out!

5/1/03 Thur: Perfect running weather greeted 53 ICers for a 30 minute tempo run up the Barr Trail from Hydro Street. Many reported that they got a good bit further than two weeks ago. However the celebration was short lived because with the new month we doubled the number of Hydro Street hill repeats. 8 makes for some good pain and more than a few have taken to calling them Hydro Street HELL repeats.

4/27/03 Sun: The 5th annual Neal and Teresa VanFeed (with the assist from Jeanne Mills) brought the runners out in droves today. 104 IC regulars and 13 newbies (half of which were family members of ICers) combined for a total of 117! So much food was eaten that some of us thought we should do another run to make up for the extra weight gain. Stupid people tricks killed a lot of time with 2 new tricks good for some serious fun. Photos will be added someday. Oh yes, there was also a run today to Barr Camp and back. It is amazing how much snow melted from last week to this week. Little snow until about 3/4 of a mile from Barr Camp and even there it was patchy.

4/24/03 Thur: 51 made it for 30 minutes of 1 minute hard, 1 minute easy. The recent rains have left the trail in great shape and there was plenty of traction. Many reported getting quite a bit further than 2 weeks ago which is of course just what we want. The 4 Hydro street hill repeats felt better today as well.

4/20/03 Sun: 67 came out for an Easter run up the Barr Trail. A little fresh snow actually made the trail more runnable above No Name Creek than last week. It was reported that Kees hid 7 eggs on the trail but we think that was just a joke because no one found any eggs. 2 ICers riding bikes as supplements to their running crashed today. One bloodied his knee really good and the other got a 3rd degree concussion and ended up in the hospital. As the days get warmer remember to be careful on those first couple of bike rides!

4/17/03 Thur: 48 came out for a 30 minute tempo run up the Barr Trail from Hydro Street. If all went well we got a little farther than the 1 on, 1 off workout from last week which is the way it should be. Trail conditions on this section of the Barr Trail are awesome. 4 Hydro Street hill repeats finished the hard part of the day.

4/13/03 Sun: An awesome weather day (upper 70s) brought out 84 runners for the first club run to Barr Camp. No snow until No Name Creek. From that point on there were a lot of snow patches but little ice. On the way back down we could see the difference in the snow melt and slipping was not much of a factor. The top 26 on the workout board made it to the run.

4/10/03 Thur: 46 made the first Thursday workout of the 2003 season. The 30 minutes of 1 minute hard, 1 minute easy got fairly ugly fairly quick. Nothing like the first hard one up the Barr Trail to remind why we start training so far out! 4 Hydro Street hills rounded out the workout.

4/6/03 Sun: 65 came out to play in some new snow today. It warmed up fast however and by the time we were done a lot of it was already melted. More than a few were feeling a little tired because of the loss of one hour of sleep due to the switch to daylight savings time. This is good news however because it means that Thursday club runs start this week!

3/30/03 Gordon Barnet reports for the 68 who made today’s run; Last run on standard time — next week daylight savings! Beautiful conditions, clear blue skies, temperature in the 30’s at 8:00. But it soon warmed up, and the layers began to peel. Anthony of course was shirtless and in shorts. A little bit of ice and snow on the descending portion of Section 16 — but nothing like the conditions 3 weeks earlier. An awesome run!

3/23/03 80 ICers made it out for a trip up Rampart Range Road today. The road was in awesome shape and there was not a flake of snow to be seen. Of course that was not the case once we turned into Williams Canyon but there were still a lot of dry spots to be had.

3/16/03 86 made it out on a day that was nice enough that a few more than normal showed up in shorts. Although there was quite a bit of snow left on UPT and LRR the ice was easy enough to get around. Waldo and Barr (at least below No Name) are in great shape. Of course another storm is due this week:-) In the meantime it was nice to get to run on some dirt again.

3/9/03 For a change we got some decent weather and 99 came out to enjoy it. However it is March and the warmer days often mean ice on the trails and today was no exception. Depending on who you talked to you would get different descriptions of today's run. Some thought Intemann Trail was so bad they headed off in other directions — mostly the Garden of the Gods. Others who toughed out the first half mile that was in the shade said it was an awesome run. Almost all were happy just to be running. The top 33 on the workout board made it and the Lloyd family set a new club record for most family members at a run with 8 making the run!

3/2/03 Over 10" of new snow bit into the club size today. However 56 were able to get unstuck and come out for a run including the top 24 on the workout board. Once again it was a slick mess down low but once we got off the roads it got better albeit, harder. While the snow really slowed things down it was awesome, especially up high where over 2 feet had fallen in places. Williams Canyon was downright fun in all the deep powder and was also the most popular run today with just 6 opting to head up to Waldo. Up on Waldo we were the first tracks which I had not seen before.

2/23/03 Another very cold day combined with some serious new snow held the group to 68 today. The workout board was mixed up pretty good when 3 streaks came to an end and there were no newbies in sight! The streets getting to the trail were icy and dangerous. From there it was just a matter of putting up with cold feet and progressively deeper snow. Fortunately even in the deep stuff some traction was to be had but the times were still seriously effected. In the end this was one of those runs you look back on during a bad patch of some other run or race to remind yourself that if you made it today you can make it any day. A big * to Howard Brooks for setting up an aid station for us at the Waldo parking lot. He stayed long enough that we could hit it on the way in and out. I am sure that saved a few on the trudgefest up Longs Ranch Road!

2/16/03 82 of us managed to find the new meeting spot forced on us due to the construction going on at our usual spot. A very overcast day with high humidity put a chill in the air. However, the talk of the day was busting out above the clouds on Section 16 which some described as looking out onto a never ending sea of white. Then it was back into the clouds and the cold but at least from our new meeting spot the run was .88 of a mile shorter. Of course that means next week’s run in the other direction will be .88 longer:-)

2/9/03 A low temperature of 9 degrees produced the smallest turnout of the season when “only” 73 came out for the freeze fest. You would think with the cold some of us would have gotten a chance to move up on the workout board but noooo — the top 46 made it so there was little change for most of us. The snow was nicely packed on Rampart Range Road. Williams was awesome in the new snow that has fallen over the week and if anything it made it seem a lot less rocky:-)

2/2/03 Great weather (the calm before the storm) brought out 95 of us for the Waldo/LRR run. Yes, the killer double loop. There is a point (several actually) during the Waldo loop where you can look over and see LRR off in the distance and you can’t help but think “oh crap”. But time and distance wait for no one and soon enough you are not only thinking “oh crap” but saying it as well. Be that as it may, several made the whole run for the first time ever proving once again that it is just mind over matter — we don’t mind, so it doesn’t matter.

1/26/03 99 came out for what looked like a cold day. Part way up Crystal Park Road however the layers started coming off! It was fun after the run seeing people showing off their times as quite a few took some serious time off of this loop from 3 weeks ago. That is what it is all about. 10 runs or 25% into the season and 23 still have prefect streaks going:-)

1/19/03 With temperatures reaching into the high 60s the club attendance record was smashed today when 110 came out! This is the first time we have gone over 100:-) Most of us headed up Rampart Range Road and connected into Williams Canyon. From there we either headed back to the park or ran up to Waldo and came back via UPT. The warm weather also meant that quite a few hung out at the park after the run. As nice as it was however we need some snow!

1/12/03 The club attendance record was broken again today when 97 came out for a run. It started out a little cold but warmed up quickly as Kill Hill on UPT had people stripping off the layers. We did the double today with both Waldo and LRR as part of the run. NOTHING can be written to describe the joy (yea right) of doing LRR after doing Waldo. In other news last week it turns out that John Mills broke a bone in his wrist. He did it about one block from finishing the run.

1/5/03 The new club attendance record was set today when 94 came out for the first long run of 2003! We ran over to the Intemann Trail and then did the Section 16 loop. As always the views on this run are just awesome. This run has a lot more fast running in it than our normal runs and therefore we will be doing this one more often:-)

12/29/02 81 came out for the final Longs Ranch Road solo run. Starting with the new year there will be new, and longer, runs. No Name creek and the spot near the chlorine gas building are their usual icy selves. The work several of us did earlier at No Name only delayed the process. Otherwise it was an awesome day today. Quite a few reported making the LRR loop for the first time! Ronald Garcia won this week’s “about me” page scavenger hunt T-shirt.

12/22/02 The Christmas holidays did not stop 87 from coming out for the last solo run of Waldo. Quite a few made the whole loop for the first time to mark the occasion. Very little snow and ice pack today and it warmed up rather nicely. After 5 runs there are still 35 people with perfect streaks compared to only 26 at this point last year. Peggy Monson won the first “about me” page scavenger hunt T-shirt.

12/15/02 Another big group (83) headed out for a long run today. It was our 2nd run on Longs Ranch Road and it was still just as steep. Weather was great — just a little windy near the top but for the middle of December we should not complain. Or should we? It was awful dry and dusty coming down the Barr Trail and that does not bode well for next summer:-( Updating the * board was pretty easy today since the top 57 on the board came to the run. We now have over 50 “about me” stories accessible off of that page.

12/09/2002 If you look on the Sunday “*” board you will note that some of the names are now hyperlinked. The links take you to Incline Club “About Me” stories. More are being made all the time. The club is getting so big that it is hoped this will help us learn about each other. Enjoy!

12/08/2002 “Only” 81 made the club run today. Waldo was as awesome as ever and lots of people took a good chunk of time off their time from two weeks ago! For those who heard about Elizabeth’s fall she is in good spirits. However she has a compound fracture of the nose, needed stitches and had 4 teeth that are banged up. Long term prognosis is looking good. She said she had a surgeon and several attendants who are Pikes Peak runners so she got some good attention. Initial report is that all teeth will stay in:-) She says she will send photos... In other news, Craig Burbank won a T-shirt today in the random drawing.

12/01/2002 Another huge group of 89 showed for the Thanksgiving weekend long run up Longs Ranch Road. There was a little snow on the ground but it was not too bad even on the very steep sections of the three bear hills. The weather was much nicer than last week an therefore a large group hung out after the run talking about how steep Longs Ranch Road was. Kim Kitchen won the Tyvek jacket today.

11/24/2002 What can you say when you start off the season with a club attendance record being smashed but WOW! 93 of us showed up putting the previous record of 80 to shame. This number is even more amazing when you consider that last year only “62” showed for the first run. Although the temperature was below freezing there was still lots of excitement and energy — at least until we hit the first hill on UPT. From that point on the trail constantly reminded us that it was the boss! No snow or ice to speak of today and to top it off Larry Miller had enough desserts waiting for us at the end of the run to feed a small nation. Welcome to our 7th year! Richard Hedlind won the first random drawing of the season for a Tyvek jacket.

11/20/2002 An e-mail was sent to the club announcing the end of the off season! This Sunday, November 24th, will be our first long run of the 2003 season. Meet at Soda Springs Park at 8 a.m. for the Ute Indian/Waldo Canyon run!!!

2002 season
