Thank you Bro @pablopanorama for this awesome surprise! I will definitely be rocking this cap with pride at my next race out in Laughlin Half Marathon and on the  trails! This cap speaks for it. 
I will never forget: Good Job Bro!! "DON'T LET THE BEAST KICK YOUR ASS." 💪#Chimera100 #ThankYouPablo #UnHolyChimera #SickCap #TheCapSpeaksTheTruth #Chimera100Finisher #UltraRunners
Some images from the beastly Chimera trail race a few weekends ago. Rarely do I get race photos I like (I usually look pretty goofy), but @paksitphotos nailed these! Thanks. As the holidays roll around, don’t forget to support your local race photographer.

If you keep running enough races, you'll eventually get the epic 'ma look at me I'm flying' pic. This one did not disappoint. Support your local photographers, they do more work than you know to bring you these shots. .

After 31:58:09 hours at Chimera 100 ⛰🐐🦁🐍 I finally sat my ass on a chair. 7 strong  runners finished the 100 mile race. I was one of the seven survivors that defeated "The Beast" 
Only the strong survive 💪 #Chimera100 #Thefeelingtofinallysitdown #Lucky7Survivors #BeertasteGood 🍺 #ThankYouGod #ThisisjusttheBeginning

Thankful Tuesday 🙏 
Surround yourself with people who will be there for you no matter what happens. My teammates at the finish line, @olivialiv26  @pharaohzgary at mile 70 and @keirahenninger presence at the end of loop one was definitely a energy booster this past weekend. #TeamCrüda #Chimera100 #keirahenninger

Chimera 20 mile, 1st place! Now it's time to let this knee heal, lots of aqua jogging this week. #chimera100 #runwithuspasadena #goodvibes_tc #mykneesucks
The Chimera.
The Beast.
It was beautiful. 
It beat me.
But... I didn’t die. 
I would have DNF’d if that was an option. Alas, the only way off The Beast, was to climb out of it. So I did. Oh, so slowly.
*****
This was the hardest race I’ve done to date. It was harder than Tushars, because this time I trained. I put in the miles. But I was not prepared to slay the beast.
I had a great first 9miles. It was slower than expected, but I was ok with that because it was a technical course & tripping was an inevitability. It was beautiful. I loved the landscape.

I made it to the Candy Store (mid point aid station) tired but in good spirits. I headed back up the beast... and at mile 13 my body failed. Failed. My knees hurt. I couldn’t step downhill. My right Achilles was screaming. Every step brought pain. Every. Step.
Blisters like nothing I’ve ever experienced were forming, bursting. For the first time an uphill felt better than a downhill. I couldn’t run the flats. 
There were tears. So many tears. 
I wished for an out, a DNF. But... the only way out of the belly of the beast was up. My nutrition and lungs held, but I had too many hours inside my head. 
I went to a dark place. The paincave.
********
I was simultaneously excited for and envious of every runner that passed me (or lapped me). They were badasses. This was no walk in the park and I am in awe of these ultra runners. Shock and awe. Mad respect to everyone who went out for two, or four more laps of that Beast.  You are Hereos of mythic proportions. ******
I didn’t die. I wanted to quit. By sheer unluck I was forced to finish. It was humbling. I am glad I was physically able to move one step at a time. I’m both burnt out and inspired. The trail running - and ultra running- community is one of a kind.  Thank you for letting me play trails for a while. I don’t know if I have it in me to continue, but I will always fully understand the badassery it takes to do what you do. ****

#chimera100. Yesterday = Day #78 of running in a row #runitfast #instarunner #runninglife #nevergiveup #runner #blessed
#mountainmonday The mountain range in the Cleveland National Forest are beautiful. This was yesterday morning after doing the overnight shift at the Chimera 100 aid station. We survived a cold night with no heat. We got to be there for the runners--we cheered them on and helped them get fuel.

Showed up to Chimera to work the  Aid Station and then got  the opportunity to help my new friend finish his last 20 mile lap.  He needed a quick nap, literally only 5 minutes.  Must have been the best 5 minute nap ever😁 #runitfast #instarunner #runninglife #nevergiveup #blessed

Posting this out of total respect for @dudehere68 and the #chimera100. Top of San Juan trail...the last of 5 Candy Store out and backs. Says it all.

Still riding the high from yesterday's race! Last week after running with @onthejumbotron up Mt. Wilson we decided that we should do the Chimera 20 miler as a tune up training race. She was able to snag a Second place overall finish and I held on to 4th overall, Second Male. The ladies were putting it down yesterday! 
Major props to @gmansl for an all out win in the 40 miler and @nvested @elipolino and @mireille.sine for strong finishes.  And to all the brave souls who stayed out there for 3 and 5 laps I salute you. One day I hope to have that mental toughness.

I had the honor of giving back to the ultra fam bam, volunteering at an aid station at Chimera 100. Joyce, Ann Marie, Maria and I had a 13 hour night shift (5:30 pm-6:30 am) at San Juan/Chiquita Junction AS. We had to hike in to get to our aid station. It got super cold out there but we were happy to be there for the runners. They saw us twice on the 20 mile Candy Store loop. It was amazing to see so many friends giving it their all, with such grit and determination on a course that is tough, tough, tough. Congrats to all who finished The Beast!

“The Beast” awoke yesterday. We got a small—first—taste of the So Cal classic #chimera100 yesterday. @oldgoatsteve puts on a heckuva race, with a slightly sadistic penchant.
•
I was really touched that this race even happened, after the Holy Fire blew through over the summer, burning up our “home range”—the Santa Ana Mountains. Thanks, Steve, for making this work, and for welcoming even more of us into your trail family.
•
Super proud of @hidef7 for completing her hardest trail run to date. I know it wasn’t an easy afternoon, but you did it—I’m so proud to be marrying a strong woman like you. 😘

No cell reception on The Beast. My #Chimera100K walk in the hills began at 6am Saturday. Thanks to a generous race time limit, I have been able to treat this adventure like a miniature stage race, and protect my hamstring and my health while still racking up the miles on a rocky, technical, steep and much beloved trail. ❤️ Yesterday, with the help of three beautiful trail friends, I tackled 40 miles and 6700’ gain in just over 15 hours of gentle walk-running. I just woke up from a delicious 4hr nap and I’m re-taping my feet and tendons, then I’m heading back to walk-run the final 20! If this last loop goes well, I expect to be finished around 1-2pm today and home to my babies (and a pile of #homework) by 4. 😘

One year ago I toed the the line at my first 100 mile race at #chimera100. It was a brutal 31+hour adventure. Wishing those brave souls attempting to tame the beast this weekend the best of luck. P.S- The Candy Store loop is where I cried and wanted to quit so have fun with that kids. 😜 #thebeast #firsthundo #100mileadventures #oldgoatraces #sadchel #angrychel #buckleup #digdeep #dontquit #doepicshit
Flat @hidef7 & Flat @running_greg ... doing a little research on tomorrow’s #chimera100 ... Looks like this one is going to be a beast!

Flash Back Friday: Chimera 100 Finish Line 2013

My first trail 100 finish was extra special because both of my kids crossed the line with me. My son, who had just graduated from Marine Corps Boot Camp ran the last 15 miles while  my daughter jumped in for the final 100 yards. 
It felt like I defied the odds at this race. With my sights set on Badwater I was working on building my run resume. I already had two trail 100 DNFs under my belt so you can imagine my nerves leading into this beast. My foot was  in a boot the weeks leading up to the event and I was told by my doctor that I absolutely should NOT run it. I did what I could to recover from injury while staying positive that a finish really was possible. Thanks to Jeff Liu for pacing me to my son AND a huge thanks to Braden for bringing me home. 
Who could have ever imagined that this finish would set me up for success to so many future trail 100s! Good luck to all running Chimera tomorrow. The candy store loop is a whole new version of crazy!! #Chimera100 #Chimera #TheBeast #ISaidNeverAgain #TruthBeToldIWishIWasRacingItTomorrow #LoveMyKids #BuckleUp #FlashBackFriday #NeverAgainDoesntCountInUltra #FOSUR #HokaOneOne #TimeToFly #WomenWhoFly #CarboPro #MySpringEnergy #NathanSports #Runner #UltraRunner #TrailRunner #WomensRunningCommunity #LikeAGirl

I have decided last minute to attempt my 2nd 100 mile race this weekend... I wasn’t planning on attempting Chimera until 2019 with all the course changes and fires there earlier this year..... (and I didn’t taper..) but why not?? 🤷‍♀️ It feels like the world is ending anyways, all my other races are cancelled. I might as well go have fun with my friends. Now I just have to get my mind around it......race starts 6 am Saturday. I believe there’s about 20,000ft of climbing. I will be running thru the night, into Sunday morning. I didn’t really prepare for this race, but I have been running a lot so we shall see how it goes. Hopefully my legs will recover from my race this past Sunday by then... I will just run what I can, I have zero expectations. I can always drop down, you can’t drop up. 😅 I think I can do it...it’s all mental anyway.  #yolo #chimera100

I will just run what I can, I have zero expectations. I can always drop down, you can’t drop up. 😅 I think I can do it...it’s all mental anyway. #yolo  #chimera100 
Medal Monday: Griffith Park Trail 30K this past Saturday with climbs and good downhill and back up again 😆

Thanks again Keira for putting a great tough route for the 30K distance. My motto for this weekend will be "Nothing worth having comes easy." Looking forward to this adventure and Chimera will be welcoming me with sufferfest both physically and mentally.🐐🐍🦁 #MedalMonday #GriffithPark30K #Chimera100 #ChasingMyGoal #ReadyPacerDeysi #ThebattleisthisSaturday #TimetoBuckleUp #100miles 📸: @sheny_espino

Smooth 13 this morning without any food or water. It’s always a good way to paradigm shift. Out on the long ultras I have run out of water a few times and for the Chimera I am making sure my body and mind are used to this feeling. Less than two weeks until my next Ultra. #marathontraining #ultramarathon #ultra #training #dtla #ktown #running #trailrunning #fitness #speed #fasting #keto #salt #chimera100
Long run tomorrow morning. 15 more days until my first 100 miler race. Blessed to have @deysilvs2run to guide/pace me at Chimera 100 miles. My first hundo 💯 Looking forward to the blood, sweat and tears. Thank you Deysi for this cap. #Chimera100 #TheBeast #Myfirsthundo #TimetoBuckleUp #Myreminder

An adventure in the rain was cut a little short by..well...the rain. Still got a nice little 3 hour jaunt in the mountains done, and lots of fun with these two! Apparently I was very excited about the picture being taken. Gonna head back out early this evening to get the rest of my mileage in. Great way to start my Saturday! 🌧

Did ya’ all match on purpose? @factoryjeff @jessemhaynes thanks for the arse whopping on the #Chimera100 course today. Legs were a bit trashed from the long run yesterday, but oh such fun we had. These boys.. they make my heart smile. ❤️

Believing in yourself is the most powerful tool you own. Embarking on a challenging feat like a 100 mile ultra race is more mental than physical ever will be. How will you challenge yourself mentally for self growth?

Remember that time I finished third fee at Chimera? In January, I finally redeemed the generous gift cert from Steve Harvey for my custom belt from California Bohemian Leather, and it came in the mail today. It’s gorgeous! Thank you Marisol and Lance, it’s perfect! @bohemianleather

🎶 Reunited and it feels so good🎶 Haven’t seen this guy since he brought me home on the last 16 miles at #chimera100. Needless to say today’s run had a lot more laughing and smiling then whining and complaining.

@howiesternphoto got this shot at the Candy Store aid station during the #chimera100...almost a month ago. I look at it and see the destruction. I crashed the spaceship into the side of a mountain. Having taken this time to go over it and over it and over it....I still don’t know what happened. The crash was brutal though. It’s easy to say that I’ve moved on...but it’s also kind of bullshit too. It’s a personal thing...and part of enduring...but I need to go again. Be at the #blackcanyon100k in February.....get myself out of this hole #howiesternphotography #provennutrition #orangemud #runningskirts #mountainscumbags #pablosancrowfeather

Super excited to be part of #teamtiux as an ambassador for 2018. I wore the Seawall Stripes at #Chimera100 and did not need to change socks once. They kept my feet dry, comfortable and all with perfect compression...and as an added bonus, no holes in the big toe! Love these socks and super excited to be part of the 2018 team! #GoTeamTiux #HundredMileTested #CompressionSocks #RunningGear #runningessentials
