Earlier this month, Sherry Arnold, a 43 year old mother runner from Montana left for an early morning run and never returned home. Her cousin, Beth (from Shut Up and Run), has organized a virtual run in Sherry’s honor. I think it would be so meaningful for as many of us to participate as possible.
If you would like to join the virtual run, visit Shut Up and Run to print out your bib. The date for the virtual run is Saturday, February 11 at 9:00 a.m. MST (11:00 a.m. EST). The race distance is as far and as fast as you want to go that day. If you aren’t up to running, get outside and do something physical in honor of Sherry.
If you do blog and feel up to blogging about your run, please do so and let Beth know. She is sharing the links with Sherry Arnold’s family. On Beth’s blog, there is also a link to donate to a fund for Sherry’s children.
Let’s see how many mother runners and non-mother runners we can get out on February 11 to honor something that Sherry Arnold loved to do. Please share this with your running partners, running friends and anyone else who would like to join the virtual run. You can use the icons below this post to share via Facebook, Twitter, or e-mail.
