Since I heard what happened to Sherry I've gone through many emotions - hope for her safe return, followed by sorrow for her family and friends, as well as anger that there are people in this world who would do such things. But today while we ran, I felt peace. While in one way this run served as a reminder of the need to always be vigilant and aware while running, the show of support this run garnered also showed how amazing people are and how a collective effort can produce strong and meaningful results. I hope that Sherry's friends and family were brought some measure of comfort in the footsteps of all who ran/walked/rode for Sherry today.
Here are some pics of the morning.

Running for Sherry
And our friend Doug was out running as well:
We just did a short out and back on the path for 3 miles. Michelle, Robin and Kristin ran some miles before we got there as they needed to go longer than me and my gimpy foot would allow.
We ran into two other large groups while we were out who were running for Sherry as well -it was so awesome to see that!

When I got home I found these pictures from friends who couldn't run with us in my inbox:
|Mike on the Wildwood trail in Forest Park. |
His caption: "A time to reflect for Sherry while on the trail".
