I just signed up for the Chimera 100. Some may question my choice for a 1st 100 mile race, crap, I will be doubting myself up to race day. Here's the deal, I have been training for the Bear 100 all year and when that registration fell through I was looking for a replacement. Nothing really matched so I had given up on doing a 100 miler for a while. Was going to back off the mileage and get back to life. Well, that lasted a week and then I had another big mileage week on rugged terrain. Thought about signing up for Javelina (I have a friend running and we plan to make the trip anyway) but it just didn't match my training. Not that Javelina is any easier, but I pictured myself on a mountain course. So this opportunity popped up and I jumped on it. Wish me luck and if anyone else is considering it, see you there.
