Can you believe this was the same spot where me and
Alikona took a picture yesterday. Today it was cold and drizzely.
I added two more pounds to my pack. Now it weighs 14 pounds. I will keep it at that weight for a couple weeks to get my body use to it.
Happy to be on the top! Happy to be alive.
Hey what happend to my Mt. Diablo??? Looks like the clouds
ate it ;(

Illness can be a teacher, companion, or challenge-but not a punishment. Still, sometimes its message isn't clear. Ignore the illness. Look for stimulation in the knowledge that you can heal in an instant.

Hey, very cool Catra. Just got back from the States and just got over my jetlag. Your progress is awesome. Keep on Truckin', yo.
- Best wishes Deb

Are you back to using the Gregory pack instead of the Nathan or is that just for training? What pack will you use on the PCT?

Catra said...

Hi Deb- Did you have fun???

Catra said...

Hey Anon-

I have both. I think I will be using the Gregory. But I will also train with the Nathan to make sure.
I have used the Gregory for my fastpacking the last 5 seasons.
The problem with my Nathan is one size fits all. Well that is not true. Woman are build different.
The Gregory is an xs.

Hi Catra,
It's great to see you up and about again.
You are so right about the illness. I was down for 15 days, had a case of pneumonia. The doctor told me to stop running or otherwise i'll be confine in the hospital. I am now feeling better and got released and back running again. I lost a lot of training time for my AR50. I'll see how i feel, i only have 3 weeks of training to go.
You are looking great and strong!!
