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.

I've been smiling all day!  I ran the Love your Body Woman's 10K Run with these two amazing women: Shannon and Julianne this morning.

What's next, ladies?  I am so ready! 

I was overwhelmed by Shannon's amazingness in creating a new tether that I held on to for the whole run.  (Part is around her arm and then the other part I am holding on to).  They were both so kind and helpful in being my eyes ... and friends.    Although in this picture, it might  look like we are the only ones, there were 1800 participating in the 6K run/walk and 10K run. 

Husbands, dogs (Cricket and Tahoe) and Layla were there at the finish line. 

P.S. As Kendall was mowing the lawn this afternoon, there is two little black and fawn pugs out at the park. Missy would always come out and follow Kendall back to the garage with the lawn mower. She did so last Saturday, and we thought it may be her last time. Sweet memory.

Wow! That was THE BEST race I've ever done. I really had so much more fun that racing alone. You rocked that race too! We held a steady pace the whole time and finished strong. I can't wait for the next one.

I'm no good at running, so I'm very impressed! Running with friends must be fun too.
Our big event of the year will take place at the end of the month
Have a nice weekend!
