Virtual Run for Sherry

11 Feb

I have been following this story since I read about it on

I used to run outside, the same route, every morning before work when I lived in MA. I ran through a dark park with no lights and I never thought twice about it. When I was training for the 1/2 marathon last fall, I ran by myself outside and while I did worry (funny what having a child will do), it didn’t stop me but I did not run the same route every day – in fact, I only ran my long runs outside and did most of the work inside on the treadmill (again, funny what having a child will do – my gym has a nursery that allows you to leave your children up to 2 hours; mom guilt won’t let me run outside that whole time [what if something happened?] so treadmill it is).

Point is, what happened to Sherry could have happened to me, to any one of us – be careful out there and give your loved ones an extra hug today.
