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.

A picture of our 10K Run on Monday.  Love the crazy hair! Brenda and I ran today and then yoga with  Shannon .  Awesome mom, ever.  Check out her latest. 
Someone recently asked me my  motivation for exercising.  I think enjoying the company of family and friends and getting some side benefits of feeling good physically and mentally. 

Tomorrow morning a walk with a friend and a bike ride with Steve prior to afternoon and evening work. 

Today on our walk, Cricket and I were stopped by Lori, one of our first drivers ... 12 years ago!  She helped carpool our kids and go grocery shopping.  Awesome help at a super busy time.  So fun to see her again.

Thanks for this post, and thanks for commenting to my own blog post, too, Becky. By reading my blog you know that I broke my foot -- I did it exercising, which made me pretty sad at first. AND made me wonder why the heck I bother -- if I didn't exercise, I'd at least still be walking!
Am now in my seventh week in a cast, and the thing I miss *most* about exercising is how it helps mental health. Very eager to get out of this cast and back in the pool!
