“I am only one, but still I am one. I cannot do everything, but still I can do something. And because I cannot do everything I will not refuse to do the something that I can do.”– Hellen Keller

I finished Coyote two moons 100. I was one of 28 finishers. I worked hard and it paid off. I was in the 35 hour start group and I finished with one minute to spare talk about a close call.

It was all of you who sent me positive energy when I needed it most, it is what got me to that finish line.

Ok here are a couple pictures. I will write a report later. I love you all!

Awesome. It seems to me that you timed it perfectly. Also I heard the conditions were Alaskan at times. Congrats on pushing on through!

Catra said...

Thanks everyone!!!
Yeah Evan it was crazy!!!
Hey TT-
I run on Mission peak pretty much everyday. I run from my house I live 1 mile from the trail.
I usually go up the horse heaven side it's like a mile longer ;-)
See ya on the trails!

Looks like a doozy of a run/course. Glad you made it through safe and sound. Thanks for the super-inspiration, as always.

I just looked up your blog to see how you did at C2M - I am Dan Decker's wife and watched you come in and out of the aid stations with such positivity, focus, drive and determination - - I've been in a training lull and you have been an inspiration to give myself a kick in the butt and get back out there! Congrats on your finish - it was BRUTAL out there...

Catra said...

Lisa as you could see I didn't have time to screw around. I tell myself no rest until i see the finish line.
Glad I could inspire you girlie. Yes it was crazy out there ;-)

Catra - You are a true warrior in every sense of the word. That had to be a hard fought one for sure. You are no princess :)

Catra,

I've never left a comment before but I follow your blog daily. You are an amazing inspiration and I'm thankful that you do blog and share your life with us like this.

Are you going to be at Umstead this year? I see Andy is running the race. I met you there a few years ago.

I won't be running it this year but will be doing photography for Blake.

Hope to see you there.

Catra said...

Yes I am running Umstead 100 I got in I was on the wait list super excited.
David thank you for the comment!
Oh cool you will be there taking photos ;-)
Make sure you say hi to me .
See you there!

Stuart said...

Awesome, if you could bottle that look of determination on your face and sell it you would make a mint!

There ain't many people who can sprint finish a 100 miler!

Catra,

Congratulations on finishing C2M this year. I've been enjoying the race vicariously through all the blogs, UR lists, etc. Tough to not be there in person, but we can't do them all in one year!

You did fabulous grinding this one out in super challenging conditions. I tip my hat to you and look forward to saying 'hi' at Umstead. I plan on running the pacing table.

Cheers,
