Today I ran for Sherry.
Sherry is a runner, wife, mother, daughter and teacher who was murdered during an early morning run in January. Her cousin, Beth from Shut Up + Run, has organized the Virtual Run/Walk for Sherry Arnold on February 11, 2012, to honor her memory. I’m two days early but I knew I couldn’t particpate on Saturday so I laced up my shoes and hit the road today.
Today I ran without my watch, without Lola (my Garmin), and without my music. I thought of Sherry and prayed for her family and friends. I prayed for the safety of all runners as we all step outside our doors; and I said thank you for the gift of life, the gift of running and this wonderful running community.
