Embrace the New................
It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new. But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful. There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power

my time: 6:43 beat my last time by 2 min.

Practice balancing for a min. a day it will help you become much stronger.

I decided to do a short run at a fast pace today. I ran 5 miles in my brand new kicks..the Adidas adizero. Super light weight trail running shoe. I heard Bmack and Carl mention them. They said they would be a good choice for running Pose so I bought a pair. Loved them..Need to run more miles in them to really say if I'm super in love with them. But as of now they're great.

My New Adidas adizero xt trailrunning shoes.

Visualize the Impossible

Ordinary people believe only in the possible. Extraordinary people visualize not what is possible or probable, but rather what is impossible. And by visualizing the impossible, they begin to see it as possible.

Cool shoes. Why good for running POSE?

I love adidas products. The trail shoes are great. Thanks for introducing me to CF, too.

Nice kicks on even nicer legs. :)

Hey Karen-
Because they aren't a lot of shoe and light weight. Pose you don't heel strike and don't need beefy shoes with bells and whisles.

Catra said...

Hey mrjwit- you are so welcome glad you like CF.

Catra said...

Oh Shannon you are to sweet thanks girlie.

Hi Catra!

You should totally send that photo to Adidas and request sponsorship from them. It's a great picture, and with your running resume, they just might....


Catra said...

Hey Sara thanks..I was sponsored by Montrail for 7 years and most of us were dropped last year. I am still trying to work on a shoe sponsor. I like Mizuno trail shoes too. Gotta try these adidas in a 50 miler first to see if I really like them.
I wasn't at crossfit this morning, did you go??? I will be there tomorrow at 9am will you??
