As I previously mentioned on this blog, a Montana runner, Sherry Arnold, was abducted on January 7. Two men have been arrested and admitted to killing her. I found out about the story from Beth, owner of Shutupandrun.net blog.
I checked Beth's blog obsessively as the story unfolded, cried when I heard that she wasn't coming home, and am still in shock and disbelief over what has happened. Sherry's story has forever changed the way I run. We all get lax in our ways when things become comfortable and routine. I now carry a phone with me at all times and let my husband know when I'm leaving, where I am going, and check in with him as soon as I am back. Beth is organizing a virtual run for Sherry on 2/11/12. I am rounding up my group of friends and we will all be out there wearing the bib on our morning run.
Running for Sherry...please join us!
