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.

Determined to Love

Sixteen miles was on the chart to run today for our upcoming marathon. I could only do 11.  I have been dealing with what I learned today was an IT band issue. UGH! I completed the other five miles on the ellyptical.   My foot is actually doing well after the last break! Only hurts a little when I push on the bone. Stretching and leg lefts are helpful for the IT band.  I had "great help" this morning doing my leg lifts and stretches. Love these happy, energetic 'girls'. They are determined to love. As I typed that phrase in ... love that mantra. Determined to love.  Determined to ______________ (what would you fill in the blank with today?)

Fantastic photo. Made me laugh. Culver does the same thing to me if I sit or lay on the floor. However, I'm rarely on the floor doing leg lifts or stretches.

Another comment to you. Only 11 miles? Amazing Becky. I hiked 4 miles today & I am exhausted. I am so out of shape.
