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.

The human spirit is stronger than anything that can happen to it. CC Scott

WE did it.

We did it. I feel immense gratitude and love for these incredible women (Suzette, Melissa, Brenda). We did it (oh, I said that :).  We ran a marathon today.
Steve joined in at Mile 20.  Someone commented that he had wings on his back and was an angel ... yep! 
A hug from mom and dad at mile 16 gave us much energy!  

Thank you so much for those who wished us well. Incredible. Each comment, cheer, email, text meant so much!  I reflect on what the running store manager told me -- "You will learn things about yourself".  I did and I will share! Our story is here.

CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!! I thought about you so often on Saturday and wondered, "What mile is she enjoying? I wonder what she's thinking? I hope she's feeling strong. I know she's seeing and creating so much beautiful!" I cannot wait to read all about it. I'm so happy for you!

So proud of you, Becky!!! You look WAY too good and chipper after your finish. I'd look like a wreck after 3 miles, much less 26.2! How wonderful for Steve to run the end with you. You did it!

Congratulations! It is a big accomplishment for anyone, not just a blind person. My sister is also marathon training and did a 20-miler last weekend. Whew!

Now, take a rest!

Congratulations on your achievement (and that of your friends). You looked pretty perky for having run over 26 miles.

Becca said...
