EXPERIENCE THE MIRACLE..............
The miracle is not to walk on water. The miracle is to walk on the green earth in the present moment, to appreciate the peace and beauty that are available now.
Chimera 100-1 Ultrarunners-0 , That's right the Chimera beat us all. The weather was epic and the race was cancelled at 1pm. All the runners were on the course and we got turned around at Santiago peak and we were told to run 4 miles to Maple springs. When we got there we were asked if we were ok and told that we needed to run down to the Silverado canyon aidstation there we would be driven back to the start. We got in 38 miles.
What a nightmare for RD Steve Harvey. He did the right thing I think. The aidstation on Trabuco peak was trashed when we got there. The shelter was torn apart by the wind. I felt so sorry for the amazing volunteers who braved the Storm to make sure we were safe.

The weather was bad but was going to get worse that's why the race was called. Steve is an awesome RD and he was not about to let his volunteers, or runners be in danger. All of us runners are very stubborn and I know we would of not known when to quit, and may have put ourselves in danger.
I'm was very prepared yet I was feeling pretty cold up high on the ridges I was in Gortex but since I was sweating underneath I got wet.
I was happy to be out there with Andy having fun in the Storm.
Steve thank you for taking care of us, and a huge thank you to all the Volunteers out there, who were awesome. And thanks to Chris who shuttle some of us runners 2 hours back to the start.
I will be back and next time I will kick the Chimeras butt.
