I have been hated by many in my life, and I have hated many as well. I hated life so much at one point I didn't want to live anymore.
I am like a Phoenix rising from the ashes.
I have lived and died. But for the past 13 years I have been so alive, I have made it through so much and am still here.
I am a true believer anyone can change their life and do all that their heart desires to do.
Have a Happy & Safe New Years eve.
What am I doing you ask. I'm heading to crossfit to get my ass kicked then I will start my 40 mile run at 6pm and run into the New year.
I love all of you.

Almost had my first date with pukie durning a WOD.
But he canceled at the last second..LOL......
I did the 150 burpees for time. It took me 15 min. but I got through it.
Not my best look but it's my crossfit look....LOL...
I did notice my form got very sloppy half way through and I fought until the end not to have to do girl push-ups. I know I was going all the way down but I did the best I could. I made sure to at least jump to my feet and do the full jump. I want to make sure next time I do this I keep better form.
I get this certain look after I do a wod, I call it my hardcore look. I don't get it after a Ultramarathon only after a crossfit wod. Hmmm, wonder why????
For anyone that wants to try this WOD go to http://www.crossfit.com so you can see what a burpee is and give it a shot.

Happy camper ,student Eric with coach Catra. He made it up the peak even with super bad cramps in his legs. Great job Eric.
One World crossfitters Eric & Catra striking a pose on Mission Peak.
Eric did mention he would go up Mission Peak again, but not after a crossfit WOD. Eric thank God we decided not to wear the 20 and 30 lb weighted vests. It could of been real ugly ;)
Try not to force the situation or force a resolution. If you would just wait a moment more you will be shown, or find, exactly what you are looking for. Try to use more inner guidance, in other words, your intuition or gut-feelings. You should now be evolved enough to know that you don’t always have to have all the answers or know the future in advance in order to attain success and avoid failure. Trust in yourself and the universe and everything will turn out as it is supposed to.

Ok anon you can go back to sitting on your butt eating crappy food and watching T.V
Sorry friends about the rant.
Alameda creek run before crossfit.
I told my crossfit instructor Freddy I would wear these for a crossfit work one day. I'm still training in them..LOL...
These abs are not from running. They are from crossfit workouts. No crappy food in this body ;)
Crossfit body 100%

Darkness-some call it danger or uncertaninty or evil-is necessary for enlightenment, because it is only through confronting fear and anger that a higher energy a truer state of being, is born.
My weight training partner Eric at crossfit is oh so strong. He can even pick my fat butt up..LOL...My butt is getting a little fat ,so Eric was trying to help me with that problem by biting it off....LOL

I hope Santa was good to everyone. I got a ab mat, pull-up bar, jump-rope, REI gift cards, money, clothes and flower print set covers for my Nitro.
Obstacles are those frightful things when you take your eyes off your goals.
Take nothing but pictures, leave nothing but footprints, Kill nothing but time.
To love and be loved is to feel the sun from both sides.
The only way to have a friend is to be one.
A friend is one who knows us but loves us anyway.

I must thank my parents for bringing me into this world. I truly am blessed for having such loving parents. I do really miss them. I only got to spend 17 of my years with my father, not long enough. He died at 48 of a massive heart attack.
I know he is the one who has always guided me out of my dark times into the light. I know I have made him proud. I feel his energy around me often. I know he is always watching his little peanut, and has seen her blossom into something amazing. My Mom , my best friend has always been there for me in life, and in the after life. In my darkest hours she has helped pick me up and brought me to the light. Coming to me often in my dreams ,giving me the answers I need to guide me through this life. I love you Momma mia. You will always be my biggest fan.
I miss them both so much during the holidays especially my b-day. If it wasn't for them I would not be here. I will someday join them, but until then I am living life to the fullest.
The look of a 43 year old. I look at this and think I look better then when I was in my 20's, now.
There is no better way to spend your birthday then doing a wod, with some hot, sweaty, crossfit studs. Lucky single me. Oh yeah, and my hot sexy friend Julia ;)
Me & Rocky doing 4.3 miles in celebration of my offical birthday.
Beautiful Sunol what more can I say.
The little man tearing it up on the Ohlone trail.

Joe & Catra at the turn around point for Joe. He headed back and finished 100 miles on the Ohlone trail
A very exhausted Catra. Antonia you were awesome for putting up with me. Wishing I was at home in bed.
This was taking on the steps of a very old cemetary. I fit right in don't you think, I look dead????
Sun setting along the Ohlone trail in Sunol
Happy Campers heading out from Jerry's aid station mile 52
Joe, Antonia, Catra and Fast Jerry.
Antonia modeling the latest in super light sleeping bag.
I wish I was turning 30 years old instead of 43. If so I would of finished right then. ;)
Left, Dave, Julia, Catra(b-day girl), Mike, Radu and 100k B-day boy Fast Jerry.
Jerry was being very bad so Julia and I had to teach him a lesson.
Sometime you just can't explain what's going on.
Jerry & me on a peak that is suppose to be higher then Rose Peak. Destinys peak.
The white stuff is snow in the Sierras.
I will write a report later, but first I'm headed off to work. Yes, I'm crazy working the day after my 43 hour b-day run. My legs are sore but other then that I feel great. Thanks to all my wonderful friends for coming out. Also thanks to all my blog followers for texting me. Really helped with my energy level during the run.

That's just what I will do during my b-day run, I will begin at the beginning go to the end then stop. I got that qoute from Alice in Wonderland.
I'm looking forward to my 43 hour adventure Just like Alice's adventure in Alice in Wonderland.
Rocky & I went to Sunol to do my supply drop. We went on a little run. Rocky got to visit Lucy one of his many GF's. Lucy belongs to Kelly my second favorite Ranger(Neil you're still my favorite). I just want to take a moment to thank Kelly and EBRP police to allow me and my friends to be out there when the park is closed. It really means alot to me.
Thanks to all my friends who will join me the next couple days you all rock, I love all of you.
Well off to bed...Got to get up way to early........................Feel free to text me some positive messages along the way especially during the night 510-585-6559
"Rash decisions or actions undertaken without forethought could result in a dead-end. Don’t just blindly forge ahead. Re-examine how you have dealt with situations in the past, they may not be the way to deal with things now. Perhaps new thinking, or a new way of doing things, is what is called for now. In spite of everything you will learn from your experience and shake off those blocks or obstacles. Sometimes you need more perspective so stand back and take a second look.
