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.

Joy

Check out Shannon's post on our 1/2 marathon and her amazing guide work!   I just chat away oblivious to the obstacles that she is working hard to steer us around!
This picture below with Steve and Shannon reminds me - I am a lucky girl.  
After a busy day at the office, yoga becomes an opportunity to check in and see how I am feeling. What word comes to mind? Tonight: Joy

I am looking forward to being surrounded by family and friends for the Wasatch Woman Lunch on Friday.My parents, Natalie and Kendall will all be here Thursday evening

What brings you joy today?

This post makes me so happy! Becky - you are amazing! I'm so proud of you for running that race. You are so dang impressive. I think of you all the time when I'm doing my measley two miles on the treadmill. HA!

Congratulations! What an accomplishment.

Becky,
it was so much fun to run with you and Shan...Good times!

Besides "joy," I think you should add "trust." Shannon is such a good guide - but unless you put your complete trust in her, you'd never be the running duo you are. High fives to both of you.

Becky, awesome awesome work on finishing the race. Really the victory was in the fact that you started training for it and faced fears in the process. Challenges I am well aware of that makes me even more happy for you. The fact that you have found a kind soul to trust with guiding you through this race is such a gift. Maybe one day we'll all be in the same city and country to run a race together! I also commented on Shannon's blog, here it is for your interest. "Shannon, thank you for sharing this. As a follower of Becky's & a legally blind runner/walker myself I am well aware of the gift of freedom, joy and team spirit you have given Becky. You are a beautiful person for giving her that joy. And awesome work on finishing the half!"

Read both posts. That is amazing to run a half-marathon and to have that much trust! I am impressed with both of you.
