Hello. this is #hikingtexas host @v.eronica.r. before this account was created, i was asked if i’d like to be one of the hosts that would cover west texas and the texas panhandle hike contributions for this feed. i was asked because of my love of hiking and because i am from far west texas. i live in a city that made headlines yesterday: #elpaso. ❦
today, the only thing i can ask via this account is to hike. hike for those that can no longer hike because they drew their last breaths yesterday morning. hike in their memory. enjoy the little things nature shows you along each trail. go forth and spread love and kindness. we could all use so much more of this right now. thank you. ❦

If you’ve ever driven east along loop 375/transmountain, then there’s a chance that you’ve seen a mammoth along the crest of the franklin mountains. the view in this pic, is facing that mammoth head on. the ron coleman trail will get you to this vantage point. featured photo is by matthew leon @matte.leon. selected by #hikingtexas host @v.eronica.r 💚 . .

Hectic week, so glad it's saturday evening 😁
i was recalling last weeks race. franklin's 50k & 5k, those franklin mountains in el paso tx are immaculate❤ the 50k (33.5 miles) with a total elevation of 8,000' up and 8,000' down. yes, we do have mountains in texas 😍#mountainrace i am counting my blessings in more ways than one, and i count running as one of the best. i am thankful for running, and everything it has brought to my life. the inspiration i feel seeing other runners meet their goals or use their skills to help others is unreal. #loveit
thanks trail ricing over texas for an outstanding race, to all those amazing volunteers thank ya'll!
i loved seeing familiar faces🙌
side note; it's not a good idea to drink a red bull before going up the mountain. it could give you real wings 🤪 haha!

Last weekends oldest 3 kids and i raced over 3 days in the franklin mountains. i raced the king/queen of the mountain, the 50k, and then hiked the half marathon with my daughter. i held on to the coveted queen of the mountain with a first place win in the same exact time as last year. this race consists of running over 2000ft of elevation gain up a mountain over the steep treacherous section for 2 miles and then run back down without falling, haha! i felt great during the 50k until i hit a wall of complete exhaustion due to poorly fueling in the first portion. the race is like 2 races to me. the first 12 miles you gain most of your elevation and is my strength. the back 20+ miles you are running depleted, gaining over 9000 feet of elevation over the race. i didn’t eat during the first 12 really so the back half my body couldn’t keep up energy wise. i was gaining energy back the very end so if it was 100 miles i would’ve been fine. haha! i placed 6th female. i also had a great time slowing down and hiking with my daughter on the last day. we made some great memories 💙 i’ll be back in february to run 200+ miles in these mountains! #teamtrot #trailracingovertexas #franklinmountains #ultrarunner ultrarunner #trailrunner #mamaof8 #teamtrot #trot #trailracingovertexas #zerolimits #embracethepace #teamnathan #runlonger #runstronger #werunonwater #werunwithyou #trailtoes #drymaxsocks #victorysportdesign #teamvictory #getingetoutgetmoving #dropbag #victorybag #organizedgear

Life update: early june after getting a mega dose of inspiration from my great friend @joshuajohnson06 , i jumped right into ultra marathons and ran my first 50k in august, and 2 more since. @trailracingovertexas holds some amazing races, with the one last weekend in el paso having been probably the most beautiful and humbling experience of my life. about 35 miles and 7000ft elevation gain in the best weather possible. •

And so the season on my favorite mountains ends as beautiful as it started. winter is here! besides my blood and my sweat, i have left a piece of my soul on the franklin mountains.-
-
this mountain will challenge everyone individually and leave anyone facing it, a stronger human. identify your goals and beliefs, take action, stand your ground but be flexible, empathize with others especially those closest to you. adaptation is the key to happiness.-
-
never stop exploring with a curious mind and an open heart. the life we have runs fast. look up, look around you. the world is a beautiful place and life is a beautiful time. hug the ones on your side. make memories. feel the wind in your face and let your eyes memorize each moment. you have been built to live for love. viva la vida! ⚡-

Not my longest trail run but definitely the most challenging one i've done so far. 13 miles of very difficult mountain terrain in just under 3 hours. great learning experience to help me move forward. i'll be back better and stronger!!!

Franklin mountains trail run “50k”: 6:49:53 for 9th overall

starting at the beginning, i clung to the lead pack, trying to hold the reins on my fierce drive spurred on by the competition. the first few climbs and descents came along very smoothly and gently despite showing my glaring weakness of running down slopes — i’d glide upwards to reunite to the group. venturing onto the aztec caves and the north franklin peak, we asserted ourselves upon the sheer verticality of the landscape, basking in the glory of the sun on a crisp morning, bounding through precarious cliffs and expansive ridge lines, eventually splitting off into our own individual experiences.
coming off of mundy’s gap and into the scenic road, my body was informing me that i worked much too hard in that first section, with cramps appearing in my biceps and quads at about 25k. while winding down to the next aid station at 30k at bowen ranch, reduced to a pathetic shuffle despite the relative flatness of this section, the cramping became extreme, sharp oscillations of pain vibrating throughout my legs. other runners began to run pass me, beginning to feel anxious and desperate over my position, i feverishly looked behind me at every constant moment, attempting to hear footsteps approaching to bring me further down the ranks. at a certain point in this valley in the northern part of the range and in my mental state, i screamed internally in myself, “this is no longer about competition. no one else exists right now except me and the rugged rocks and shifting sands i have to cross. keep moving, finish what you’ve started.” cutting off the ego and it’s reactions alleviated the pressure building on my shoulders, allowing me to soak in the remainder of this grueling experience.
regardless of the ceaseless pain, slow shuffling, monotonous switchbacks through barren lands, a trip and tumble, i eventually perceived the finish before me, climbing the final steps to receive the most gratifying finishing medal of my running career thus far.

much thanks to @momsfreshjuice for sponsoring my nutrition and to @trailracingovertexas for recognizing the beauty of the franklins and putting on such a wonderful event!

On the bright side, i trained better than years past according to my post race soreness. however, there is much room for improvement and i will be back to prove it to myself. #relentlessforwardprogress

So one of the crazy things i have ever done. signed up for a 35 mile steep uphill trail race on 1 days notice. the franklin mountains trail run 50k- one of the toughest races i've ran- up there with the colorado rockies spartan ultra race and the ohio beast. the climbs and ascents here are the steepest, it took a lot of willpower to get to the top. i saw about 50 or 60 didn't finish but i commend them for even trying because this was no walk in the park. this whole year has been an uphill battle but i've had an amazing team to support me and push me past my limits so this one goes out to my family, friends, and loved ones! thank you all so much. don't ever give up my friends! no matter how dark life can get there is always a light at the end of the tunnel. i ran this race without a headlamp so i felt lost at the end once it got dark but i had a strong faith that i would find my way and reach the finish line. "faith is not a light which scatters all our darkness, but a lamp which guides our steps in the night and suffices for the journey." you will be okay! 💙🙏🔥💪⚡#50k #ultramarathon #elpasostrong #elpaso #915 #ultrarace #ultrarunner #trailrunning #trailrun #trailrunner #trailracingovertexas #franklinmountains #run #running #runner #finishline #finishermedal #medal #strong #spartanhelmet #endurance #faith #inspiration #racebling #picoftheday #marathon #hope #like #follow #like4like

Passing through the protected franklin mountain state park, transmountain road is perfectly situated for glorious shows at day’s break and end. watching an el paso sunset, especially from transmountain road is something that certainly defines a true el paso visit. several picnic tables with awnings are offered along the road. 🗻 🌄

A fun memory from being in the military. a few of us sharing a laugh (looks like this is while we were waiting to go off to ada school judging from the shadows and map bags). that's me on the left with the big honkin first army patch on the shoulder. these guys were fantastic to work alongside and i do miss them all. happy veterans day to all my brothers and sisters in arms!
