Become immune to poison..............
The whole world can
gossip about you, and if
you don't take it personally,
you are immune. Immunity
to poison in the middle of
HELL is the gift of the
second agreement.

Hey Catra,

Sorry you are struggling. I really appreciate how you leave nice comments for everyone on your blog even when you are busy with your own stuff.

Did you get out for a run yesterday? We went 17mi in the rain it was fun. Have a good day!

Someone got to you. Don't waste anymore time thinking about their negative comments about you. Life's too short. Plus if they know they got to you they may continue to want to get to you. Ignore the comments and the person.

GOOD ADVICE...I STRUGGLE WITH THAT MYSELF FROM TIME TO TIME....I LONG FOR THE DAY WHEN THE JERKS AREN'T EVEN A BLEEP ON MY RADAR.

IF I COULD TROUBLE YOU FOR SOME MORE ADVICE...I RECENTLY SIGNED UP FOR MY FIRST MARATHON... THE BIZZ JOHNSON TRAIL IN SUSANVILLE, CA. OCT'07

I'M A BAY AREA RESIDENT LIKE YOU AND WAS WONDERING WHAT YOU MIGHT SUGGEST I DO TO GET READY FOR THE 4200 ELEVATION.

Love the new color. Your beauty will deflect all. And at its base we only have ourselves.

Catra -
Those are great words of encouragement. I have been there and dealt with that (A LOT it about a year ago) and people only poison us if we let them!

Hey Guys I'm fine :)

That was a quote I took from my four agreement cards. I just shuffle the deck and pick.

I have some personally family stuff going on but that's nothing new. I'm actually great.
Cheers,
Catra

Hi Christine-

Go train on Mt. Diablo or on Mission peak. That will get you ready for sure :)

Catra,

What are the 4 agreements? Are they personal, or perhaps posted on your Blog?

Love the comments about immunity - very hard to get to that wonderful place.

Hi SR-
The Four agreements is a book by Don Miguel Ruiz.
It is a self help book.

I have the book ,the CD's and the toltec wisdom cards.

It's an awesome book. I think everyone who wants change in their life should read it.

Hey Catra,

Saw you at RR100....ran behind you for the first loop. was then lucky enough to hang in there for a sub 24 in my first 100 mile attempt. I still can't fully believe it!! I couldn't get over how many people were shouting hello to you!! a real testamet to the positive energy that surrounds you. Congrats on your finish in what was definitly some COLD weather. i look forward to speaking with you if our paths cross in the future.
