Running for Sherry

Today is the day of the "Running for Sherry" event.  I have heard that running/walking/hiking/skiing events are taking place all over the world today, and that is just amazing!

It's only 18 degrees outside right now, so I decided to do my run in my basement on my treadmill.
  While my boys played around in front of me, I couldn't help but think about how Sherry's children must be feeling right now.  It is just heartbreaking, and I will never understand what drives people to do such horrible things.

As Beth put it, "This run symbolizes the beginning of healing and honors a woman who was courageous, strong and loved by so many."  

I am glad I was able to run for Sherry.  My thoughts are definitely with her and her family today, and I can only hope that they are able to feel the strength, energy, and support through all of us out there honoring and remembering her today!

I always think about the kids too. So sad, and so unnecessary.
