My little red tether is my anchor in running with my friends. A beautiful guide dog has been my tether/anchor in mobility and independence for 17 years: 1. Pantera 2. Cricket, and now my beautiful 3. Georgina (Georgie). A life of family and friends is my joy and anchor in life.

We Did It

We completed our 100-mile bike ride today. Indeed a beautiful day. Below, I am waiting for the ride to start.

Picture below is what the view would be like from my seat behind my captain. I enjoy 'snippets' of the view, and also experience the sounds and smells of the ride and great conversation with Steve and other riders (3000 for this ride, I think?)

Look who came to visit us on the last rest stop, Cricker Girl. (Thanks, Mom and Dad!)

Silly me. We talked about which jersey to wear and we decided upon our Guide Dog Jerseys. One of my favorites. Somehow I got up there with this brown jersey.
Steve and I enjoyed a beautiful day together riding our tandem bike for such an important cause in a valley that we love.
