5K in the Rain for you Sherry Arnold

Like many of you reading this, this morning I went running in honor of Sherry Arnold.  We did not have to brave snow or cold as you can see on the picture.  We ran 5K in the rain.  My 2 running buddies; Rebekah who is 5 mos pregnant and her dad Benjamin who ran a sub 2hrs half marathon at the 13.1 Los Angeles Race came to join me and Denise, one of my followers who I met today. Thank you for coming with me!  Denise it was really nice to meet you. 

It is fantastic to see all the pictures on Facebook from the many virtual races that took place today.

I like what Beth wrote on Facebook today after her run:

We did it. Bad, mean people can suck it.

I am proud to be part of that We.

Rest in Peace Sherry, I will never forget you.
I hope you felt all the steps that were taken in your memory today.

This was in Sidney, Montana today.

words cannot explain the feeling of seeing such amazing people come together for her today. Yes, bad mean people can suck it. Well said Beth!

Bad people can absolutely suck it. But the world is vastly populated with wonderful people - as yesterday's run has shown! Good people rock!!

For you and I, this was our second run for Sherry! :^) I'm glad you had such a great day, Caroline.

It was glad to have a tiny part in such a large event.

It was great to meet you all. The miles just flew by while we chatted.
