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.

Creativity in Running & Walking in Europe
Prior to our vacation I had to take a break from running due to a concussion. By the time we started our vacation I was symptom free -- yay! We were so very grateful that little mishap didn't hamper our vacation. So, my first run was on the treadmill on the cruise on our way to Finland. I remember thinking this is a memorable first run back. It felt great. Our second run on the vacation was in Norway. I realized I had forgotten my tether. Time to be creative. We just needed a flexible belt/rope for me to hold on. Steve had a belt that worked great. It was pretty awesome to run the streets of Norway. We also ran in Moscow, Russia each morning on the treadmill. A wake-up call meant fresh orange juice delivered to our room which was so much fun.
