They stomped on our right to know. Now it's time to get even.
Prop 37, the California Right to Know GMO labeling initiative, was narrowly defeated last week thanks to a relentless, deceitful $46-million advertising blitz. Among the largest bankrollers of the NO on 37 campaign were huge multinational food and beverage companies whose subsidiaries make billions selling some of your favorite organic and "natural" brands.
Brands like Kashi. Honest Tea. Naked Juice. Muir Glen, Horizon, Silk, and Morningstar Farms.
It's time to boycott the companies and brands whose dirty money confused and scared millions of California voters into voting No on Prop 37. It's time to plaster their facebook pages with this message: We won't support you until you support us. It's time to call their consumer hotlines, complain to the store managers where you buy your organic and natural products. It's time to tarnish their holy organic and natural images, to expose their hypocrisy and greed.
It's time to raise a little hell. If we raise enough hell, maybe their parent companies will come to their senses and stop carrying the water for Monsanto and the biotech industry. Maybe they'll stay neutral in the upcoming labeling battles in Washington state and Vermont.
The OCA is calling on consumers to boycott these organic and "natural" traitor brands:
Tell these companies that if they want your loyalty - and your grocery dollars - they must do two things:
- Speak out publicly in favor of the pending GMO Labeling Ballot Initiative (I-522) in Washington State in 2013, as well as the pending GMO labeling bills coming up in Vermont and other states.
- Contribute as much or more money to the Yes on I-522 Campaign in Washington than their parent corporations spent to defeat Prop 37 in California. in Washington State, talking to legislators in Vermont and Connecticut. A 30-state coalition is formulating a plan to collaborate on GMO-labeling laws and initiatives.
Join the boycott

YES! I RAN THE RACE ON SUNDAY NOVEMBER 11, 2012!!!!!
Before the Race
It was AMAZING!! Up and over Mt. Tamalpais, TWICE!!! I read about the course before the event, but it didn't really dawn on me until I was there!
HERE ARE SOME COMMENTS ABUT THE TRAIL THAT I READ BEFORE THE RACE, BUT HAD NO IDEA!!!
"The course is ~98% dirt single-track trail with some rocky, technical sections. The climb up Steep Ravine has a 12' "ladder" you will have to climb... the descent on Dipsea back to Stinson Beach has a good number of steps. I recommend trail shoes for this one!"
" It'll be a hilly one... About 7,000' of pain... I mean gain." NO KIDDING!!!
Elevation Map: I ran the half marathon, "only" 3200' gain....
It was more of a very fast hike then running. Seemed like HUNDREDS of steps. Once I got onto the flat trail however, I felt so much in the zone. Running through the forests like that, I could not help but to imagine what it was like to be a Native back then, when we we were still at war with the US. And if they saw a Black Woman running like that for sure they would have tried to stop me just because it looked suspicious! Yes, these were a few of the thoughts running thru my mind as I was running thru the woods.....
All was fine until mile number 12, when my knee gave out. My knee was in excruciating pain at the top of the mountain; I was so relieved to see it was time to start declining. Boy was I wrong! It hurt even MORE to walk down, ket alone RUN down those steps!!! I was thinking, "I will NEVER do this again!" Then when it was flat again, the folks running 50K were coming back around. They were telling me, "Looking Good", "Great Job!" All kinds of encouragement. After a while, the pain in my knee was no longer the priority! I wanted to FINISH!!!!! By the time I crossed the finish line, I was already planning my strategy for NEXT YEAR!!! LOL!!! Imagine my surprise and exhilaration when I learned that I CAME IN THIRD PLACE IN MY CATEGORY!!! I TIMED IN AT 4:20:46!!! FOUR TWENTY!!! And, I got a medal and a t-shirt!!!
TAKE THAT, IMMACULATA HIGH SCHOOL COACHES AND OBERLIN COLLEGE COACHES WHO TOLD ME THAT BLACK GIRLS RUN SHORT DISTANCES AND WHITE GIRLS RUN LONG DISTANCES!!!! I RAN 14 MILES, UP AND OVER A MOUNTAIN, TWO TIMES!
Across the Line!
Limping Across the Line
Results for My Category
Lucky Number (13 in numerology!)Overall winner of my race, half marathon, 14 miles:
1 Mike Lopez Mill Valley CA 434 55 M 1 50-59 1:48:21
Female winner in my category:

Female winner overall:
5 Jennifer Mygatt Williamstown MA 441 31 F 1 30-39 2:14:12
Anyway, next time, I will take better precautions with my knee, like not running the block or so on concrete before hitting the actual trail. That would have cut at least one hour off of my time....Fifteen years ago, I made a promise to the Universe that if I was allowed to keep running, I would never run on concrete....
Special Thanks and Gratitude to Sabryyah for the photos, and getting me to the race on time. Special Thanks to Devorah, who gave me a ride to Hopland so that Ali could pick me up and get me to Sabryyah! Yes, My ride to the race backed out two days prior. I was determined to get there, even if I had to hitchhike. It was like a relay race getting to Stinson Beach! Of copurse, I left the directions at home, and my cell phone had no reception, so we almost got lost once we got to the state park! It was quite a morning.....Needless to say, I slept for two days after the race. Very Special Thanks to Round Valley Indian Health Center for getting me started with the Triathlon Summer 2012, and to Melanie for hooking me up with a pedometer.
So this may well be the final episode of my training with PeTAPACK and RAISING $421 for PeTA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals),however, I am just getting started. I plan to train and raise funds for organizations every year, maybe twice a year. It might not always be for PeTA, however, it WILL always be about MAAT IN ACTION: RUNNING FOR WORLD PEACE!!!!!
Here are the last training videos that I did not get to post until now.....
Ran into this memorial one day during training...
PEACE! Tchiya Amet El Maat
After seeing the torus energy flow, I have extended the field so that it reaches out farther, so that I can share energy with another without depleting my own energy. It is a protective shield that allows for generous sharing. Since I have been doing this meditation, I have more energy, am more assertive, less timid and more courageous in speaking up for myself, in a very Maat like manner..... Standing in My Truth. Remaining Seated on My Inner Throne and CANNOT Be Moved!
Torus Energy video clip from movie.
Some More Images to help you get the idea.
Here is the Movie THRIVE in its entirety by the way.
Interesting how Taurus and Torus sound similar? Ancient languages had no vowels, so these words are definitely related...
As for increased energy. I have also been taking Mana Wai Blue Spirulina with coconut water....my energy is off the charts!
I feel that the combination of this Blue Spirulina with the Torus Energy Meditation are responsible for my heightened energy levels these days.....
I used to do a meditation for abundance, where I visualized how we exchange energy with the trees, then cut them down to print paper money. I saw how we can get the energy and things we need to live on Earth from the Trees and vice versa. This Torus meditation takes this a to a whole new level.....
Maat Hetepu! May the Peace of Maat Be Upon YOU! Tchiya Amet El Maat
Do you recall in episode five, where the doggie backpack mysteriously appears in one of my closets??? Well. the following week, I was cleanng out another closet, and FOUND A SECOND DOGGIE BACKPACK, THIS ONE SLIGHTLY BIGGER....okay, so what is really going on here? I have no idea, but if other things that I need start appearing in my closet, I won't complain.....
Some more smokey shots.
The fire is now under control. They say however that it will keep burning until the first rain. No orders for a rain dance yet. I remain on call!
Here are some photos of the "darling flowers" I run into when jogging around the airport.....Star Thistle. OUCH!!
And now for the video clips! Actually, I was able to string them all together into a little movie!
Thanks for checking out my progress. If you'd like to make a donation to peta, please visit my petapack page. PEACE! Tchiya Amet El Maat MAAT IN ACTION.
LIKE A WASP STING!!!!! This incident has nothing whatsoever to do with the training..... Yes, on thiss day, I was just picking blackberries! I will let the pictures do the explaining.
I learned alot about wasps. I thought I was just getting stung. Turns out int was an initiation into order & feminine power:
Wasps in Totem Spirit Lodge Library Forum
Animal Symbolism of the Wasp
Wasps make paper. Their structures are built with knowledge of sacred geometry. The female has the stinger, many species have one near the tummy. In fact, it is their female sex organ, meant for laying eggs! They can sting multiple times, unlike the bee that stings once and then dies. I have to admit, that my house needs lots more order, and that I have been procrastinating on a few good projects. I will let you know how things turn out....
This is what I think I walked into....
Anyway, the five mile run was wonderful. Here is a little video clip....
Dim lights Here is Geronimo chilling after the run....
Yes, the fires are still raging, and I am still running!!!
Okay, so as you can see, that was quite a day! Now, for a few words about why I am doing this:
With more than 3 million members and supporters, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) is the largest animal rights organization in the world. PETA focuses its attention on the four areas in which the largest numbers of animals suffer the most intensely for the longest periods of time: on factory farms, in laboratories, in the fashion industry, and in the entertainment industry. We also work to prevent a variety of other abuses, including the cruel killing of beavers, birds, and other "pests" and cruelty toward backyard dogs. PETA works through public education, cruelty investigations, research, animal rescue efforts, legislation, special events, celebrity involvement, and protest campaigns. You can find out more about PETA on our Web site PETA.org.
Although PETA does work in all these areas, all funds raised by the 2012 PETA Pack team will go directly to our Investigations & Rescue Fund. That means your money can provide a sturdy doghouse to a neglected backyard dog who has no shelter, help rescue an animal from a cruelty situation, support our undercover investigators who are working to expose cruel conditions behind closed doors, and much more!
The PETA Pack team spends three months each year training and sweating and fundraising and laughing and cheering for the group that is the world's most powerful voice for animals: PETA. Join us today! You can make your donation to petapack right here.. PEACE! Tchiya
Back to the back pack...So, I'm trying to fit it into my budget: the Cesar Milano pack is like $70 with shipping and all. The other day, I was cleaning out a closet that has not really been opened for three years. What do I find in there???? A DOGGIE BACKPACK! NOW, I HAVE NEVER SEEN THIS THING BEFORE IN MY HOUSE. I HAVE NO IDEA HOW IT GOT INTO MY CLOSET OR EVEN HOW LONG IT HAS BEEN THERE. Needless to say, Ilu is ROCKING this back pack!!!!
This was Thursday August 23.
This was another 4 mile run. Felt GREAT! The firefighters are always worried about me being out in the heat. Frankly, I don't see how people can just stay indoors!
Friday August 24: X-Training with Sybil. This photo is from the Fit Trail at the Round Valley Indian Health Center. Remember when I first started training, and I wiped out due to cell phone complication? Well I also hurt my wrist. This next photo is after I managed to swing myself across using the so called monkey bars. I was amazed because I was able to do with weak wrist!
Sunday August 26 I ran FIVE MILES!!! Whoo Hoo!! How did I do that? Especially with all the firemen and road crews out there!!! How will I run six miles next Sunday? How willI run THIRTEEN POINT ONE MILES IN NOVEMBER??? Stay Tuned!!
The tip the packleader had about running on balls of feet has made an amazing difference. I have forgotten that I had a knee problem. That mostly came from running on concrete or cement, which I do not dd anymore. But sometimes, it flares up...
THANKS PeTAPACK for getting me out there and pushing myself beyond my comfort zone!!! AND for putting this together so that we can take action for world peace. I used to think these walk/races for fundraising were bogus. However, IT FEELS GREAT!!
I have been pretty busy, and missed a few posts. However, I have been training with consistency. I still cannot believe that I ran 5 miles on Sunday!! So, here are some photos from the past week or so, including today!
Here is the Training Schedule:. Yep. on Sunday, I am running SIX MILES!!! In back of my mind is coach from college days: Black Gilrs run short distances.....
What is really healing for me about this is the fact that each day, no matter how tired I am, I am still able to complete my chores and get this training done. I have been using this great product: MANA WAI BLUE SPIRULINA mixed with coconut water. maybe that is it!!! LOL!! KOSMIC BLUE SPIRULINA
:MANA WAI TM Blue Spirulina:
"A Powerful Super Food made from the Blue Pigment of Spirulina!
Interested in more Energy?

ANYHOO, on to the photo!!!
August 17. Marcus Garvey's Birthday. Cross Training Day.
I went to the Fit Trail at the Round Valley Indian Health Center. I like to come here/go there. First of all, IT FEELS WONDERFUL TO BE OUT OF THE US, EVEN IF IT IS ON AN INDIAN RESERVATION. PERIOD!!! Second, there are delicious apple trees and blackberries along the trail. Third, it is quite a workout. I can go around once now. Next month, I will work towards going around two times.....
August 18 was the BlackBerry festival, which was healing. Day of rest for training, but without a car, I must have put in a few miles hauling my keyboards on a dolly/ from my house to the fairgrounds!
Sunday August 19, I ran 4 miles.... already posted that photo...just catching up....
Tuesday August 21 was very hot. Got out late for the morning. Lots of fire and smoke. This is a funny picture!
had just finished running....this one is nicer...
Keep in my mind that I am training to run in a race for peta: People for Ethical Treatment of Animals! PeTAPACK. PLEASE visit my petapack page and make a donation today! PEACE PLEASE!!!
Here is info about the half-marathon race that I will run on November 11. I can only run trails....
Mt. Tam Trail Run
Hetep. Peace, Tchiya Amet El Maat
Here is a photo of yours truly, at the location I ran 4 miles. I thought I was smiling!! Today I ran with Geronimo. he is great for long distances. I like to take Sybil to the River, because she won't run off. Geronimo will run off, and he WILL come back. With their mama, Ilu, you never know WHEN she will come back!!!!
This is a video clip that I really like. Very inspiring about training. This guy started at 40. I am staring at 51, not bad!
And this is from second day or running two miles. It is so funny, because I saw some road maintenance guys standing by the road. I asked them if they would shoot video of me ending my run for the day. One of them said "Sure, if you let us use your cell phone. Our truck died!" So, as I got closer, I realized that I KNEW one of them! In fact, my daughter used to date his brother!!! Anyway, this is me running towards the bike after a run, with my trusty companion, Sybil.
and now a special treat: Where the Dog Ran at Reggae On The River 2010! Dim lights

I have decided to take action towards world peace, in addition to all the other things I am already doing. With this action, I hope
to accomplish many things, including:
- better health for my self
- better health for my dogs
- pushing myself beyond my comfort zone
- raising awareness about cruelty to animals
- raising awareness about vegetarian lifestyle; in my opinion, mistreating, killing and eating animals contributes to worldwide violence and disease amongst human beings.
- setting a better example for the youth of today, the men & women of tomorrow
compassion and respect for all life.
So, I have started training for a 13.1 mile mini marathon. My dogs are my training partners. I ride my bike to the course location, then run. Sometimes I swim as well. Planning on running a course somewhere in Round Valley, where I currently reside. In addition to running, I am also raising money for PeTA: People for the Ethical Teatment of Animals.
Here is my petapack page where you can make a contribution on my behalf:

This is where I will be posting about the training. The blog here at tchiya.com will continue even after the race on
November 11, because I think that I will just keep on running for world peace!!!

On Day 2, I tried to reach for my cell phone while holding leash with running dog in other hand, while riding my bike! OUCH! Talk about painful multitasking!
And here is a video of me running towards my bike...
well, it's still at youtube....
running towards bike
How did this all come about? Well, I have been saying for years that when I hit my 50's I would start training for triathlons.
And even run in races. One day last month, I saw a flyer about a triathlon right here in Round Valley. This event was sponsored by Round Valley Indian Health Center. I entered, I ran and
I got second place. There were only three people in the race, but that is beside the point! LOL!!! I LOVED the feeling!
I am hooked.....
Here are some photos from that great day!
CRoss the Finish LIne!
