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.

Running Clothes. Retinitis Pigmentosa

I have loved connecting with others who run and fun to connect with others who run who have RP. When diagnosed and experiencing further vision loss, it wasn't something I thought I could do so it makes it super cool :). I often walk in from our runs thinking - I am so blessed and feeling so good.  We were in TJ Maxx in St. George (love that store) and I was by the exercise clothes section when I discovered this jacket ... felt the sleeves and the built in hand warmers and realized it was a running jacket. Love it. Cricket seems to think it was worth a pose.
Then, Steve and I did a little Christmas shopping today and discovered this fun jacket at Columbia Outlet.  I had loved one similar at the Portland Airport but it was way out of the price range.  This one = $35 and after I tried it on realized it has running gloves and a hood for those very cold mornings!    
Funny story as I was standing for the pose - I said where is Cricket ... she was quietly sitting by the side of me ready to pose!  

Happy Weekend!  I'm looking forward to time with family -- Festival of Trees and Nails with Natalie, Christmas party with an organization Steve is involved in and ... Sunday Steve and I 'get' to give a fireside on Nurturing our Marriage.  We spent the day together having fun in preparation :).

Glad to see that I'm not the only one buying for myself instead of buying Christmas presents for others. I need to focus on my shopping list, not my closet.
You look fabulous, as always!!
