Live Your Life With Motivation And Courage!


Happy New year!!!
What a fun New years eve. Andy and I ran the New years 1 day 24 hour race.
We both were doing great until the wee hours of the night came and the rain came. We both got slight hypothermia and crawled into the car to get warm. We didn't really have any warm clothes left so decided to rest and see how we felt. Andy had blisters and had no desire to head back out so I decided to stay with him in the warm car.
It was awesome being able to see the fireworks and speeding New Years eve doing what we love and spending it together.

We both have HURT 100 coming up so need to recover for that ;-)
Andy ran 96 miles came in 5th place overall. I ran 80 miles came in 2nd female 11th overall.

Hope you all had a safe and happy New year!!

Happy New Year! That is awesome. BTW, I just watched Running Madness and there were quite a few footages of you in it. Very inspirational!

Hey Catra, this is some really serious stuff you are doing and quite impressive. You've got a lot of fans (no really!) at Irongarm. Come over and give us a shout and talk about training and whatever else interests you. We can be a rough crowd but you've earned a great deal of respect over there just doin' what you do. Holla if'n you want. I'm Shapecharge over there.

Hey Anon/shapecharge LOL i thought those foul mouth bastards over there hated me ;-) I know a lot of them are a bunch of shit talkers but it doesn't bother me. Glad I have some respect from some of those boys.
I will stop by ;-) thanks

Hey Simplypaque thanks ;-) still makes me cry to watch it. My Mom was very special and she passed away before the race ;-( so she never got to see me finish in person. But she was there with me just like always in spirit.
