Very nice!!! I'm getting the "tat itch" myself! I'm going to get some work done on my upper left arm next. Mainly because all of the tats that I have are on my right side, so I'm becoming lopsided!! :) Can't wait to follow you during the WS!!!!

Catra you are the illustrated Woman. While on trail I enjoyed learning the story of each tattoo. And how each one is a part of your mythology & life story. I hope you don’t run out of canvas too soon because I think your life has just begun… All Love & Light GPSK

Hi Catra!
I have really enjoyed your site and thought you were way cool in Running Madness! It has realy inspired me to start running again as I have always wanted to run an ultra. Since I live in the south I was thinking of doing the is pretty close by and sort of flat in a loop so that might be better for a first try.

I wondered if you would mind telling us about how you got started as a vegan? What did you eat and what were your influences? What benefits do you feel you have received from this way of eating?
Thanks so much!

Hey Ariel-
BTW cool name..I'm glad you liked RM move.

I love Umstead 100. I've run it a couple times!!! I think the 50m would be a perfect first Ultra for you.
I was a vegetarian first sice I was 18. I became a vegan when I quit drugs. I wanted to stop harming my body and I wanted to eat as clean as possible. I love animals and always have. So I thought I don't want to eat any living being.
I try and eat mostly Raw foods. At whole foods we carry a line of Raw foods in the cold case called Raw sheeds. It's all nut and vegi based. they also have deserts that are nut & fruit based.
I work for Whole Foods Market so it's easy living raw. It works for me.

I try and eat 100% raw most weeks once in a while I will have brown rice & beans after a long run.
I have been vegan sice before I started running so I only know that it must be good!
