A few weeks ago a story broke about a runner in Montana that went for her typical morning run and she never returned. This story really had an impact on me.
I never considered the dangers of running. I run. And most of the time when I run outside, I don’t give second thought to trying new paths, listening to music, or even not telling people where I will be. This story has brought running safety into a whole new light for me. And I hope it does for every other runner out there too.
Today, February 11, there is a virtual run for Sherry. Everything I have read says to place one of the bibs on and run at 9:00 am.
I am heading to the gym this morning and today, today I will be running for Sherry. I will be dedicating the miles I run to her. I hope that you have the chance to do something today: spin, walk, hike, run, swim….anything. I hope today you have the chance to participate in the virtual run for sherry.
Here are a few running safety tips. Most seem pretty much common sense, but it’s worth a read anyways.
Have a good run!
