Wow Catra, I am truly amazed at what you are able to accomplish. I never ever would have thought it was POSSIBLE to run, let alone run miles, let alone run an ultra whilst on a cleanse. I can barely imagine myself doing a cleanse and going through my normal housewifey daily routine. But there you go... just goes to show that if one is willing, there are so many boundaries waiting to fall. More power to you. One other thing- don't know if you saw my comment re coming out to Utah in Feb. I was hoping to get you, me , Steve and Sandee together somewhere in Utah or Cali. But the timing is weird. I'm coming back out for 5 weeks in the summer, though. Would you be interested in getting together with Steve, Sandee, and I then? -deb

Hi Deb-
It was really now big deal running the ultra on the cleanse. I premixed the Master cleanse ingredients intwo flasks. So I have 4 servings. I only drank two and just drank water.
I was running on only 400 calories the whole run. So anything is possible. My body was fine.
I'm running RR 100 next week and won't be around the 8-12.
When are you coming in Feb. ? I for sure can't get to Utah it's a long drive and I can't take off of work. I need the mone.
The Summer might be better when will you be here???
If you are in Cali. in Feb. where would you be, what city??
Have a great day.

Catra, it was a great race and I had a total blast! I think it will make a great official 50K next year even if it is a bit flat and paved for my taste :-). Pass on the big congrats to Michelle on an awesome finish and also thanks go to Mike for "organizing" the event.
