I ran for Sherry

I'm so late in posting this, but wanted to make sure to post it!

I loved seeing how many people "Ran for Sherry" and posted on the day of the run!  Don't think I will ever see everyone with the same tittle again.

It's amazing how you don't know someone but can still be effected by a situation.  When people are hurting you want to help but never know how...especially when we don't know each other personally.  I was so happy when, Beth organized virtual run for sherry!  In a small way I could do something!  I knew I was in!

Because of this tragic event I think we all have been way more aware of running solo after hearing about Sherry.  Also a reminder that life is short and we have no idea what tomorrow brings.  

I was really looking forward to running with the local gals for this event, but the last minute I had to ditch me friends.  Family things come up and they take priority.  Because I couldn't fit in the time to travel to and from the meeting place I decided to run around here.  I invited my brother to join since we haven't run together for a while.  He was game!

We had a wonderful run down at Ruston Way and caught up!  I love running with my brother!  We went about 3-miles together and I did another 4 on my own.

I prayed for Sherry and her family and also for all of us runners out there.  That we would be more aware of our surroundings and be cautious.  I kept thinking how proud I was that in a small way we were beating the EVIL of the world.  Not that running for Sherry would bring her back, but we were going to bring good out of the evil that was done.  

God is GOOD and HE brings BEAUTY out of ASHES.  

To see people all over the world running and supporting Sherry's family was amazing and I loved being able to be a part of it.
