Run For Sherry - February 9th

Run For Sherry

Run For Sherry is taking place on February 9th and will be officially started at 9a MST.  For those of you who don't know what the Run For Sherry is please keep reading and watch my interview with Beth Risdon of Shut Up And Run. The Run For Sherry is a virtual run to honor Beth's cousin Sherry who was tragically taken from this world last year.  Sherry went out for a run in her small home town in Montana and never returned.  She was murdered by two men who had violence on their minds and they unfortunately acted on those thoughts. Last year Beth organized the Run For Sherry and there were over 25,000 downloads of the bibs and who knows how many countless copies were made.  The run reached 25 countries and brought to light the need to be vigilant when we are out running regardless of whether you know where you are or not.  Paying attention to your surroundings is important and making sure that your family and/or friends know where you are is the first step to helping ensure your safety. This year the Run For Sherry is not only to never forget Sherry but to encourage us all to keep running.  I, personally, want to make this year bigger than last year and have documentation of it so please print your bib here and then take pictures with you wearing it as you get ready for your run and upload them to Twitter and Instagram using the hashtag #RunForSherry.  This will allow Beth to get all the pictures in a couple of locations and download to create something memorable for all of us to share. Here is the video of my interview with Beth: [youtube]Thank you for reading and watching.  Now make sure that on February 9th at whatever time and at whatever pace and for how ever long you run that you Run For Sherry.   [caption id="attachment_7251" align="aligncenter" width="612"]run for sherry - memory - running Run For Sherry[/caption]

About the Author:

I grew up in New York and lived there for 34 years until I got divorced and moved 1600 miles to my new home in Texas.  I love New York and miss it but that does not mean that Texas hasn’t been great to me because it has.  It was here that I discovered endurance sports and specifically the sport of triathlon.  Triathlon has given me new life through all the challenges it presents.  I no longer look at life the same way and I can say that is in part due to my endeavor into this sport.
