In my profession as a therapist in private practice working a couple nights is part of the routine. The positive of this is some free mornings. (I making a real effort to block out the mornings on the days that I work until late so that it doesn't become a 12-hour work day -- not helpful to me or the client). Wednesdays have become my morning. So, the last couple Wednesdays I have enjoyed amazing runs with my friend Shannon . I appreciate so much her making the extra drive to pick me up. I am loving the opportunity to run with her. If she lived next door, I'd probably be knocking on her door daily! We are running a 1/2 marathon in January. So excited. Steve also will be running which will be fun to have him be a part of the journey. How does a blind person run? I hope you other blind runners will share your tips. Shannon and I run with a tether that she made. Isn't that so awesome! In thic picture it is the red rope. It is much more comfortable than the one Steve and I used previously. This bib that indicates "blind athlete" was made by my friend Paul several years ago. It serves the purpose of letting others know that I am blind so they can run around us or understand why I am not going to move for them. Cricket is super cute but she doesn't run with us. She doesn't guide while running.
What motivates you?
I came back and the hot water heater wasn't working. Steve worked his magic and there was enough for a shower. He is my hero in so many ways.
Searching for some motivation to get my blind technology skills moving as I reflect back on the resolutions for this year. I need someone knocking on my door asking if I did my braille homework today or learned one new task on my victor reader.
