For Sherry Arnold

I don't know her but she has been on my mind since Saturday.  I am not the only one like this, I know several of us blogger-runners are thinking about her.  I look for updates on the Internet first thing in the morning hoping for THE good news and fearing reading the worst.  I have been thinking of her during all my runs this week.  I want to believe she is going to return home safe and this nightmare will end for her and her family and friends, for you Beth.


This Sunday I am running a Half Marathon. 
I will pin this bib in the back of my shirt.


I hope that she will be found before Sunday and that she will be well and that I will not put this on the back of my shirt.

Are you racing this weekend?
Join me and pin this bib on your back and take Sherry with you for a few miles.

Very good way to honor Sherry and hope for her safe return. You are very thoughtful Caroline. I hope you have a great race this weekend.

Patrick Mahoney said...

Nice one, that's a great gesture...

Sherry will be on the Black Knight Army's bibs during the 15km race on Sunday.

Michael said...

What a great idea Caroline! Seriously, it's a wonderful gesture. I hope they find her soon too. It is so scary. I run by myself pretty much 100% of the time. These are always things you worry about, but have to kind of block out of your mind.

Good luck this weekend!

Charlotte said...

What a wonderful, thoughtful thing to do!! I don't have a race coming up but I will dedicate my run tomorrow to her! I'm praying for her safe return.

Jason said...

You are extremely thoughtful. What a great idea and maybe we should do not just for a race but in training as well as you never know.

Great idea and thanks!

Dash said...

Wonderful. I hope she is found safe before then and you do not need to.

Candice @ I Have Run said...

What a kind, generous and touching gesture. I wish I had a race, just so I could join you. I wish even more that you don't have to pin that on your shirt on Sunday.

Christine said...

What a wonderful idea!! Good luck with your race!

I do consider all the ideas you've presented for your post. They are very convincing and can certainly work. Still, the posts are too quick for beginners. May just you please lengthen them a bit from next time? Thanks for the post.
