I also wanted to take part in Shut Up And Run's Virtual Run for her cousin Sherry Arnold, which is what we did today. I woke up and it was in the twenties, we actually got a dusting of snow last night, and it was still coming down a bit when I left the house. I made it to Burnett Park by eight o'clock, and we took off.
It was pretty icy in spots, I kept my eyes on my feet the whole time. It felt good to be out in the cold, moving up and down the hills. Although I had to walk down one in particular, I easily could have wiped out
I thought of Sherry more than once.
This is the worst hill, and it comes at the end of the race, it's a steady climb to the finish. There is a stop sign at the top, and I keep it in my sight, because once I reach it, I know the worst is over.
It was a really good run.
This virtual race was a wonderful way to celebrate the life of a fellow runner.
I wish Sherry's family peace.
