. "I don't fear insects or spiders. At great heights, I jump off, smiling. In the face of death I wink. But, when I look into your eyes, I'm in fear of how much I love you."
Mt. Wilson trail run at dusk.
Andy and I did a trail run at dusk. I had run 6 miles earlier in the day and a crossfit wod. I couldn't believe how humid it was out last night when we started our run. We ran to the heli pad and turned around. We were hungry and it was getting dark. It did get dark on the way back and we had only one flashlight, only because I said I didn't need one.
We went to Thai food in Sierra Madre, we got it to go, and sat home and ate.
I have so much fun with Andy he is the sweetest, nicest and caring guy I have ever been with.
We are so excited about Saturday it will be our first ultra together. I'm even more excited about Sunday. Andy is going to take me to Disneyland. I can't wait we are going to have so much fun. Actually we always have fun as long as we're together.
Sorry for the mushy post.

No Catra, don't apologize for the mushy posts! Keep doing them!
I love seeing that you're so in love... the softer side of Catra - it DOES exist!
I was also the type to keep my cards to my chest and not let my feelings go because I was afraid I'd expose too much of myself, but when you find that perfect, hilarious, distance-running-loving person, you HAVE to let people know!
Good luck to you both in the race!

You guys are adorable!!!

It's so fun to be totally, madly in love. All of the sudden I am listening to all these long songs and stuff. :)

Disneyland!!!! I'm sooo jealous! I'm just a big kid when it comes to going to those places. I think I like it more than my kids. Have an awesome time and enjoy your first Ultra together. You two are just so cute! Ok, now I'm done with the mushy stuff.

Honestly, I'm so burned-out in that department, personally. I don't even feel bitter. It's worse than that - it's like I've never been eligible, and I don't know why. Too geeky? Maybe I'm a jerk (most jerks are clueless, right?)
So I just keep trying to turn off the valves and switches. Every once in a while I find a switch turns on and I'm like, "Who left that on?" And I "fix" it.

But I do SO totally love your posts!
The deal is, you both have kind eyes and BIG hearts.
Also, just because some people are beyond hope doesn't mean everyone is. I'm not a flower, but the sight fo a field of flowers still lifts my soul! There ARE things "right" in this beautiful world. And insofar as I am what I am, I know there is hope for things you can't even dream of because we never seem to get what we dream of where we dream of getting it and how we dream of getting it. But out of the darkness, from left-field, like being smacked by a falling star, life is DIFFERENT! and BETTER! Maybe not the way you dreamt, but still better somehow.

So "mush" away, sled-driver! Mush! Mush!
