  1. The list shows

    BEST in SHOW
    #9 – La Calavera

    but the spelling in the caption under the corresponding photo at the top of the article is

    Best in Show: La Cavalara

    – typo?

  3. @Kevin Roche
    Thanks for the details. Does anyone know if there is a twitter stream or facebook page or something that provides photos of the winners, identifying them as such?

  4. Yes. I can provide links in a bit. (I’m about to go out on the Rock Creek Trail to log a time for the Silicon Valley Santa Run. From Washington, DC. ? )

  5. Yes. I can provide links in a bit. (I’m about to go out on the Rock Creek Trail to log a time for the Silicon Valley Santa Run. From Washington, DC. ? )

  6. As the saying goes, “I am fluent in typo – both reading and wtrinig!”

    (Though … the caption now says “La Calavara”, whereas everything else says “La Calavera”?)

  7. My brain just seems to resist the correct spelling. Fixed again — hopefully right this time.
