ANGELES CREST 100 awaits - 2-days of Inspiration remain (until damnation)

The ANGELES CREST 100-Miler is now a scant 2-days away. This is DAY 4 of a 5-part BLOG.

Day 1: JASON HEALEY
Day 2: JUNE CASERIA
Day 3: CHRIS PRICE

If you are reading this as your first BLOG in this series, I have asked a few athletes in that finished 100's (or longer) over the last 5 weeks to provide me with a QUOTE that gets them fired up to compete, a SONG that helps them in the tough moments, and a MANTRA that helped them finish their respective races.


ATHLETE: KEVIN "CHANDELOUS" CHAN
RACE: Western States 100-Miler
FINISH: 23:40:48 (his 1st 100-miler & coveted WS100 Silver Buckle)
QUOTE: "To get through the hardest journey we need take only 1 step at a time, but we must keep on stepping.”
SONG: Walk - Foo Fighters
MANTRA: “The most dangerous weapon is your will.” - Bruce Lee
Song Lyrics: Walk

A million miles away
Your signal in the distance
To whom it may concern
I think I lost my way
Getting good at starting over
Every time that I return


I'm learning to walk again
I believe I've waited long enough
Where do I begin?
I'm learning to talk again
Can't you see I've waited long enough
Where do I begin?


Do you remember the days
We built these paper mountains
And sat and watched them burn
I think I found my place
Can't you feel it growing stronger
Little conqueror


I'm learning to walk again
I believe I've waited long enough
Where do I begin?
I'm learning to talk again
I believe I've waited long enough
Where do I begin?


Now
For the very first time
Don't you pay no mind
Set me free again
You keep alive a moment at a time
But still inside a whisper to a liar
To sacrifice but knowing to survive
The first to find another state of mind
I'm on my knees, I'm waiting for a sign
Forever, whenever
I never wanna die
I never wanna die
I never wanna die
I'm on my knees
I never wanna die
I'm dancing on my grave
I'm Running through the fire
Forever, whatever
I Never wanna die
I Never wanna leave
I'll Never say goodbye
Forever, whatever
Forever, Whatever


I'm learning to walk again
I believe I've waited long enough
Where do I begin?
I'm learning to talk again
Can't you see I've waited long enough
Where do I begin?


I'm learning to walk again
I believe I've waited long enough
I'm learning to talk again
Can't you see I've waited long enough
