T.E.A.M. – Together Everyone Achieves More

I hear many kind words about inspiration and accomplishment. It should be no surprise that the most dramatic of all of these moments usually involves an incredible team of support making the various accomplishments possible. Yet unfortunately all too often more credit is given to me than the team of which I am only one part. It gave me pause to consider my belief in how much more all of us may accomplish when we choose to be a part of the right team and dedicate ourselves to learning the best means to work together as a team.

“Coming together is a beginning. Keeping together is progress. Working together is success.” –Henry Ford

As Ford said well, the beginning is coming together. We have significant influence on the people with whom we surround ourselves in our life’s journey. I firmly believe the better we choose and the kind and careful tending of those choices is the first and most powerful step in our own appreciation and success in life.

Whether undertaking a Tuff Mudder, perilous Peak or work like the 2020 Vision Quest charity, the communities of support and friendship we build are the foundation for all the success of the experience. I think it’s important to note that we should always be striving to give and to be all that we hope for in our teammates as well and that includes understanding the difference between when someone has understandably slipped as a partner and if someone simply isn’t the team player with whom we want our life surrounded.

Building the team is important, as is understanding the individual aspects of the entire team. Learn what communication works best for which people and try to provide them with that approach. Share openly with your team which methods work best for you and adapt where possible to fit their ability to provide with your needs. Check in with each other along the way to adjust as the team grows and learns so that encouragement and support combine with question and challenge to yield the strongest support for everyone’s goals. A team moving in unison towards common goals is a powerful force indeed.

My journey is filled with so many wonderful people who have helped enable me to achieve some incredible moments. It all falls so well inline with the very aptly named Peak Potential Annual Charity Dinner and Auction. It highlights the ultimate level of team rather nicely as well. On that night we will have our closest friends who support us and we’ll have the brief adventure experience teammates of the mountains and Tuff Mudders. In a larger sense, we’ll build a more vast community by our choices, and that greater community will help provide a means for perhaps the greatest accomplishments of our lives.

Thank you to all my closest friends, my many adventure partners, and especially to the vast network of friends and supporters who help me always strive to reach my own “peak potential” personally, professionally, and philanthropically!

I’ve undoubtedly earned the reputation that’s at the source of this week’s post and yet I still find amusement in the three typical reactions to my August 23 undertaking:

  1. “Of course you would do a Tuff Mudder.”
  2. “Are you crazy?”
  3. “What in the world is a Tuff Mudder?”

The last is the easiest to answer: initially it was a 10-12 mile, intensely difficult obstacle course designed to test the metal of British Special Forces. As the competitive challenge was brought a bit more mainstream, it has been adapted as a fundraiser for projects such as the Wounded Warrior Program. The team approach eases the challenge somewhat, but for many it is the ultimate test of determination, perseverance, and perhaps sanity!

The Tuff Mudder youtube video will show you better than I could ever reasonably describe.

In my own defense, of sanity, I was entreated to undertake this by a couple of good friends who thought our teamwork to achieve this together would set the bar as high as any of my undertakings. I thought it was an ideal way to wreak havoc with my Marathon training. Of course I said yes, but only after being shown that at least one other blind person undertook, survived, and blogged about his experience.

Surprisingly, that made it easier to say yes because I knew I wasn’t doing it to achieve a first, but rather to support the goals of friends and attempt to take teamwork yet again to a very high level. For me that experience and demonstration is worth the challenge, struggles, and risks I’ll experience in the event.

As I write this blog, I have not yet undertaken the event but by the time of publishing it will have occurred. Whether I succeed, fail, or walk some form of middle ground to the above, I am confident we’ll have come together and given our very best attempt to do each challenge fully. Our team will come together in some incredible ways with me providing as much to the team as I’m certain to get from it. I hope to have more words for it when it’s complete but I reserve the below space for a few picture highlights of our team at work.

I want to give special thanks (blame?) to the two people most responsible for getting me into this muddy mess: thank you Laura Mountain and Greg Naeult. In the follow up I have no doubt a full team of thanks will be owed as Pete, Christine, Tom 1, Tom 2, and a few others are sure to be essential to the rewards within our reach!

Autumn is fascinated by the butterfly that has landed near her.First and foremost, Autumn did NOT eat any butterflies. She did, however, accompany me to the Butterfly Place. They absolutely welcome service animals and in fact were as warm and kind with Autumn as they had been with Ostend and Quinn in their visits to this wonderful opportunity just a few short miles from our home.

They did once have a potential service animal run amok in their facility and even eat a couple of butterflies. It’s sad that I have to say “potential” service animal but a proliferation of fraudulent approaches coupled with inappropriate behavior is a significant concern at present.

Any service animal acting inappropriately may be and should be requested through the handler to depart. As a handler, it is our responsibility to ensure our dogs are properly prepared for any and all environments to which we are bringing them. It is our job to maintain control over our service animal as we work with them to benefit from their training to provide us with their service. This is something well taught at Guiding Eyes and likely all Dog Guide schools. While the occasional failure may occur, it is more common with the fraudulent situations and leads to questions about how best to manage the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

Anyone being expected to grant access to a Service Dog has the right to inquire:

  1. Do you have a disability?
  2. What service is the dog trained to perform for you?

Those two questions and the right to request that inappropriate behavior cease immediately or that the dog be removed from the premises are the means to protect business owners. Truthfully, many are intimidated by the entire process. Wanting to not restrict appropriate access or fear of litigation causes a paralysis of action and may allow those abusing the system with fraudulent service animals or misbehaving service animals to cause significant problems. As much as I have been frustrated by illegal service denial in the past, I am similarly disheartened by the animal users who perform an equal injustice.

Autumn poses behind a large wooden butterfly with her head peeking out

This is why I will always strive to ensure Autumn and I are prepared for all of the situations we encounter. I want to open lines of communication in every way possible and I want to savor experiences like the marvels of the Butterfly Place for both Autumn and me… as well as the many others sharing the experience with us. I hope many others give their personal responsibility an equal due diligence and get to savor the experiences as well!

Quinn smiling

The Mighty Quinn: Definitely exemplary of unconditional love.

By Randy Pierce

It was one of the most touching tributes I could imagine when Eileen Doyon contacted me through our mutual friend, Kathy Dunn. She understood I had shared a bond of incredible depth and meaning though she’d never met Quinn or me, except through the stories shared by Kathy. Yet she appealed to me to write a short story that would deliver the essence of our bond for her newest book , Pet Tales: Unconditional Love, in a series that delivers a process of healing and messages of inspiration along the way.

Quinn adorns the cover of this book and his tale is as well told as I have ever managed within the pages. I encourage you to get a copy and read Quinn’s and many other tales and tell us what you think. In the meantime, I want to allow Eileen to bring her wonderful concept to you directly as a guest blog post.

Unforgettable Faces and Stories

By Eileen Doyon

Eileen Doyon surrounded by images and memories that helped to inspire the creation of her books.

It has been quite a journey publishing Dedications: Dads & Daughters, and Keepsakes, Treasures From the Heart in April 2013. Most people will deal with loss at some point in their lifetime. The loss of my mom and my brother early in my life has been extremely difficult. In 2011, I lost my dad to lung cancer and was with him ‘til the end. Since then I had been trying to figure out how to deal with death due to it being so much a part of my life. The year that followed my dad’s death was depressing, complicated, and dark. Receiving two treasures, my dad’s dog tags, and my grandmother’s chandelier, meant so much to me, my attitude, and my outlook on my own life. With these keepsakes, I felt their presence and their love all around me. I knew that others in my situation had to feel the same way. If so, I wanted to help. So that became my mission…. to help others talk about their loved ones who have passed and to tell their stories of their own personal keepsakes. Our military is very precious to me. We owe so much to our veterans that have served and protected our country. So that became my theme of my second book, Dedications: Dads & Daughters, daughters telling stories of their dads’ service to our country.

People were so excited, emotional, happy, and sad all in one, but it was all good. We laughed and cried talking about memories and stories of loved ones. Sometimes, those feelings are buried deep down due to the crazy hectic lives we all live, and sometimes it just hurts too much to think or talk about. Everyone’s comments were so supportive and positive. It really became a healing to all and made people feel good.

"Pet Tales: Unconditional Love" is available now!

“Pet Tales: Unconditional Love” is available now!

So, in this hectic life, I decided to create a series of books titled Unforgettable Faces and Stories. We all need to stop and think about people in our lives, both past and present, and stories of those unforgettable magic moments. Those moments consists of happy memories whether with our pets, traveling the roads, or particular topics of life… our theme is… YOUR story told by YOU! We provide a creative outlet to enable people to tell their own story, share their own pictures of special moments in their lives, and hopefully to use this storytelling as a healing process as it was for me.  The third book in the Unforgettable Faces and Stories series, Best Friends: Forever and Ever published in November 2013 is comprised of heartwarming stories of friendship that everyone can relate to. Our books also present a way to give back to the community with a percentage of profit of each book going to a specific charity related to that book’s theme. The next book in our series, Pet Tales: Unconditional Love is now newly available through our website. No matter what type of animal, pets provide many of us with companionship, unconditional love, security, healing and in some cases they are trained to assist us to enable our lives to be more functional. This book is filled with stories of these very special relationships.

I am so excited and honored that Randy Pierce submitted a story about “The Mighty Quinn” for this latest release!

Randy’s story is inspirational in itself.  How he shares Quinn’s story with us is unforgettable!  Look for Quinn’s story and many others in Pet Tales: Unconditional Love available through our website now.

I had gone totally blind and a sudden new challenge–damage to my cerebellum from possible mitochondrial disease–had forced me into a wheelchair for a year already, when my beloved Dog Guide, Ostend, unexpectedly collapsed and died from an undetected cancerous tumor on his heart. It would have been oh so easy to accept that present reality and mire myself in the muck of misery. In many ways, it was tempting. I’m fairly certain if I had done so, I would still be in that wheelchair or worse. So many of the rewarding experiences I have in my life, so much of the good I believe I accomplish often, might have been forever lost.

Instead, I chose to believe that more might be possible and began exploring how I might make it so. I called every and any doctor willing to discuss my worsening condition who were the best experts in the various challenges I was facing, and I wrote or visited with many. I found experimental procedures and vetted them with friends to build a priority approach. I pleaded with friends for ride schedules to make it all work. There’s a long list of attempts which fortunately led to some incredible successes as well as the setbacks. Success is not a guarantee, but without trying, failure was effectively assured. That’s true well beyond my personal experience there. It’s true for any of us willing to conceive of a goal and reach for it.

Now I’m striving to achieve  so many goals physically and beyond. I want to set myself up for success in all the ways possible and I’m willing to explore any and all reasonable avenues. A great friend and running coach is certainly helping the marathon goals, a great board and staff is helping 2020 Vision Quest, and my own willingness to explore other avenues has helped set me ahead in seeking other goals. Each of us can and, I think, should always consider what we can do to start making those positive steps of healthy choices in our diet, exercise, social interactions, work, and virtually every avenue of our life. We own the choices that will continue to impact our lives and it’s oh so easy to slip into status quo. Be open and curious, and I think the possibilities ahead for you are nearly limitless.

 All that said, I recently began trying ASEA at the encouragement of a friend. It particularly captured their attention due to the mitochondrial implications which are believed to be at root of my physical challenge and which is a target support of ASEA. I suggest any of you curious take a moment to visit the website, watch one or several of the videos, and feel free to ask me any questions about what is involved.

I’m not an expert but I did read enough to feel comfortable in the choice and I have absolutely noticed improvements in my physical recovery and overall health since this began. Each week I track a simple questionnaire, and despite often intense work such as the Double Century and my marathon training, I’m simply feeling better and better. That’s my personal experience that I can share and you can choose whether there’s a potential benefit for you worth the exploration.

Bonus Announcement:

On July 28 I expect to receive 50 Advance copies of “Pet Tales” – A collection of short stories in which Quinn’s story is prominently featured. We will be making them available as much as possible through any of our live appearances. Eventually you will have the means to order your own directly but we are happy to share and celebrate this release even earlier for those with whom we can meet in person. The success of this release will have considerable influence in our approach to a full book of our own. We are excited and think you will be as well when you get to read this wonderful story!

Interesting that I’m writing about procrastination as I submit this blog post rather late to my ever cheerful content manager who might not edit out that apologetic flattery!

Have you ever had so much to do that the maelstrom of responsibility creates a paralysis of sorts preventing any progress? I find this particularly true for my creative outlets such as blog writing. This is the infamous writer’s block for which therapy is often simply sitting and making yourself write. Effectively that’s what I’m going to say in the entirety of this post, so cliff note readers please enjoy the free time I am now providing!

I like to consider myself generally strong at building task lists and diving into them immediately. I love to finish projects ahead of schedule and have the bonus time after the completion without the stress or worry of a deadline still hanging over my head.

Thus, it’s when there is sufficient work that I don’t reasonably see the free time at the end that I have my most challenging battles with procrastination. However, I remind myself of the humor of letting procrastination begin with the very concept of procrastination–and I simply put a time schedule and project onto the list and begin work.

My final tactic is to motivate myself with a short allotment of break time for immediately after the completion of any particular project or section. I then have something to which I can use as a tempting reward for just a bit more work. It’s a shorter time as there’s so much more to do, but I find that giving myself this time increases my energy for the next task as well as the final stages of the current. While it tends to work best on things with lower creativity as mentioned, this very blog demonstrates that it still allows us a more personal look into my approaches and real struggles as well.

Thanks for this more playful weekly blog post and I’ll hopefully have a little more dramatic a post next round!

Randy and Brent ride tandem.

Randy and Brent ride tandem.

Randy and I are planning on riding a double century (over 200 miles) Friday, June 27th, 2014.

The “century” or 100-mile bike ride, is the cycling equivalent of the marathon. It’s a ride many serious cyclists have on their bicycling bucket list. When you go beyond the marathon in running, you find a small group of ultra endurance runs of 50 or even 100 miles. In the cycling world when you go beyond the century, you have the Randonneurs: cyclists who will ride distances from 100k up to 1200k in a specific time limit.

Randy and I are working our way into this long distance cycling culture by trying out a few of the New England Randonneur events (100k & 200k), but for our 300k we are going to complete a ride special in my life. We are riding from Nashua to Lebanon on early Friday morning on the 27th (2am start) and hoping to return to Randy’s home around 7pm. The time limit for a Randonneur 300k is 20 hours.

This ride is special to me because in the 1970s I completed a Lebanon to Litchfield (Nashua border town) to Lebanon ride. I thought of this ride as a way to see a good friend who spent her weekends in Litchfield, but the ride became a “Brent against the world” event. No one thought I could ride such a distance.

Randy and Brent with the Randonneurs.

Randy and Brent with the Randonneurs.

The ride had a tremendous positive effect on realizing my potential. As I entered high school a shy and nervous boy, I often drew upon my knowledge of how I succeeded on the ride as a boost in my confidence. I credit the ride with all my success in geometry my freshman year, as I learned to be tenacious from a long bicycle ride.  The ride helped to propel me forward when times were tough.

Now that I am turning 50, I have been thinking about repeating this ride, wanting to visit the person who suffered his way home from Litchfield 37 years ago. I am happy to have my dear friend Randy to help me.

Why share this  with 2020 Vision Quest? The core message of 2020 is about human potential. Potential is realized by moving through challenges. Randy shares a positive and inspirational message, but I know he wants everyone to experience the human potential inside of each of us. As my mom so wisely challenged me, can you find the inspiration to walk across the reality between where you find yourself today and where you dream of being tomorrow (just to clarify, we will be biking through the reality).

Randy and I spoke a lot about biking on a tandem as we have spent time together over the years. We have been dreaming of longer and longer bike rides, and this is a test to help us see our potential.

On June 27th, think of us. We will be laughing, smiling, suffering, enduring, and living a full life.  I hope we learn about human potential, which could be a lesson in failure, patience, or success. All I am sure about is we will not want to sit on a bike seat for a long time. Wish us well and consider following along as we share updates through the 2020 vision Quest Facebook, Twitter, and other social media outlets during our epic quest.

Our route on June 27.

Randy with Quinn at Peak Potential 2013

Randy and the Mighty Quinn at Peak Potential 2013.

Randy here. I’d like to announce our Fifth Annual Peak Potential Dinner and Auction!

Save the Date: November 22, 2014
6:30pm

Or better still, purchase your ticket or table now.

This event has developed into an incredible experience and our signature event. It is our single largest fundraiser which enables us to undertake the incredible work we do as an organization. I believe we’ve made several decisions to improve the event and now we need all of you to continue your incredible support which has made Peak Potential and 2020 Vision Quest so successful.

Rather than me telling you all of the ways this event may be even better, let me introduce you to Erin DesMarais, a good friend and the new volunteer coordinator determined to continue and even advance the great work started by Rachel Morris, creator of Peak Potential. Erin no doubt will want to share some of the big news for our event!


We had a sold-out crowd last year!

Hi everyone! This is Erin, and I am honored that Randy and the 2020 Vision Quest team allowed me to take on the task of driving the planning efforts for Peak Potential this year. I have known Randy for almost a decade, and I have always been inspired by his positive attitude and refusal to let something as insignificant as lack of sight get in his way. To me, Peak Potential is a celebration of the pioneering spirit that Randy encourages in every single person he meets. I hope you will consider joining us this November to be part of this celebration.

The Peak Potential team has already begun to collect auction items that are the central feature of this event. Last year we had spirited live and silent auctions at the event, which we plan to continue as it generated some fantastic activity. We look forward to posting all the amazing items donated by local individuals and businesses on Facebook for you all to preview before the event. As always, if you or a connection of yours might be interested in donating to our auction, we would love to hear from you! Email Sarah at sarah@2020visionquest.org.

Tribute picture of Quinn

Our tribute picture of Quinn was one of our most popular auction items in 2013.

We hope to sell out dinner tickets once again this year, as well as bring in new partner sponsors, and host a fantastic party for you all. After listening to your feedback in the post-event surveys, we’ve decided to forego the live music this year in favor of providing more opportunities and more space for social interaction. We also look forward to generating even more funding for our charities: the NH Association for the Blind and Guiding Eyes for the Blind. These organizations do so much for the vision-impaired community in the northeast, and without them Randy’s life may have been very different. In honor of Randy, the 2020 Vision Quest team, and everyone who has supported Peak Potential through the years, I am going to put my all towards making this year’s event a success.

Welcome, Awesome Autumn!

Welcome, Awesome Autumn!

As Randy mentioned, tickets are now on sale here. This brand new event website has all the event details and will showcase our partner sponsors and auction items as we get closer to November 22nd. Tables of 8 are just $500 until September 1 – get some friends together and make a night of it!

Bonus: this will be the Peak Potential debut of Autumn, Randy’s newest guide and my close, personal friend! OK, we’ve only spent one afternoon together, so “close, personal friend” might be an exaggeration, but I think she’s awesome.

I hope you will join us! You are welcome to contact me at erin@2020visionquest.org with any questions or comments.

A very common question in my world is, “When is Autumn going to hike?” The answer is far clearer after a tremendous experience with the mighty Mt. Agamenticus! We have been steadily developing our teamwork and understanding of each other in the conventional Dog Guide work. I’m well aware of some of the challenging parts of work for her as well as the strengths; conversely, I haven’t been entirely convinced of her awareness of my limitations and challenges. That all changed on Tuesday, May 20.

Randy and Autumn hike up a rocky trail.

Randy and Autumn start out on the rocky trail.

I arrived bristling with eager anticipation at the trailhead for Mt. Agamenticus with Laura Mountain and Autumn. We would be returning to hike with students from nearby Marshwood Middle School in the afternoon and it was time to understand what worked and what didn’t work for us as a team. Placing the harness on Autumn immediately begins the transformation to a higher focus; she’s still an energetic and occasionally distracted young pup with excellent confidence. As we started upon the Ring Trail we stepped up to our first rocky step challenge and she strode a bit more boldly than I might prefer. While I could manage it, I decided to stop her and rework her. I thought it would be worthwhile to emphasize her need to pay attention fully to the tricky aspects of my finding my step.

Autumn and Randy hike down the trail.

Autumn and Randy pick up the pace.

Her confidence extended to my ability to stride as well apparently. Stepping back and asking her go forward led to an excellent “approach, slow, and pause” for the footing while I tapped out my awareness of it with my foot. We resumed and I noticed a shift in her stride in the harness. Moments later she angled and paused beautifully for more challenging steps and also kept the confidence to work through it with me after my acknowledgement of her alert. This repeated many times as the challenges became more significant.

My smile grew and Laura and I began to talk about the intensity of her watching the trail, my steps and the best angle of approach. She made choice after choice that simply demonstrated she understood the challenge for me in getting my feet around a tricky trail. She was independent enough to ignore the route Laura sometimes took, and each time for the right seeming reasons. My smile burst forth and yet showcased only  the barest hint of the jubilation I felt inside. Autumn understood my needs on a trail, and far faster than I might have ever anticipated or even hoped. Cautiously adjusting her body to clear me of each obstacle, slowing and holding her balance to manage the angled descents, she was ever aware of when we could stride confidently and when we must step cautiously. It was as if she had reached an epiphany with my need for her and not just a system of rules we were trying to follow. It was simply beautiful!

Success for Randy and Autumn!

Success for Randy and Autumn!

Laura and I began to celebrate the experience together and she captured many photos and videos of the invigorating process. Laura’s sight and description helped ensure I fully understood the great work from Autumn. My confidence blossomed and Autumn’s enjoyment and confidence never wavered. We hiked up and down the mountain with and without students that day. Better still, Autumn has taken this confidence and new awareness to the rest of our work together. I certainly believe the many lessons learned over miles and years with Quinn helped me to understand my role better as well. I have high confidence that as we increase the hiking opportunities slowly yet steadily, Autumn will continue to learn and respond with the eager enthusiasm which was the hallmark of our first hike. It’s ironic to me that for all the presentations I provide with an emphasis on “Believing in Possibility,” I had somehow allowed a bit more doubt than is usual or appropriate. It’s a wonderful reminder to me that Autumn has many lessons to share with me in the miles and years ahead!

I cannot give blood as the nature of my medical condition prevents the Red Cross from using it. However, I can and will join my fellow Hudson Lions and the Red Cross by giving my full support to their upcoming blood drive:

Red CrossThursday, May 29
1:00 – 6:00 pm

White Birch
222 Central St.
Hudson, NH 03051

I am working the full event and would very much appreciate as many of you as possible joining us. The White Birch provides some great food in appreciation for those who are choosing to literally save lives through the donation. Autumn is giving free licks to many of you as well. Won’t you help where I cannot and make this important decision?

It’s a fairly young event and as such process times will be fairly quick. With the online registration options, you can minimize any delays.

Click here to make an online appointment
Or call them directly at: 1-800-RED-CROSS (1-800-733-2767)

There are so many powerful reasons to give blood and yet the sad reality is although an estimated 38% of the U.S. population is eligible to donate, less than 10% actually do make this choice. Will you? There are so many facts available to show the importance and I urge you to explore the Red Cross website.

More than 41,000 units of blood are needed every day in the US. Meeting this need is only is possible through donations from people like you. I’m once again proud of my club for helping to make this possible, proud of the White Birch for supporting the cause, and extremely grateful to all of the Red Cross efforts to ensure so many of us have had our lives or the lives of loved ones saved because of their efforts. As I said I cannot give blood but I’ll dedicate my time and encourage you to help where I cannot. Give blood at this event if possible or a blood drive near to you. Become a regular donor and know the difference you make in our world! I’ll be at this event to thank each and every one of you personally!
