I Used to Run with Doubt. Now She Can’t Keep Up.Posted: March 3, 2012
Today, I ran my first 10K race – the Chattahoochee Runners Club 10K. Sure, I have run 6.2 miles before, but not in a race and not with a sweet 10.35 mile PR. I’m shooting for a 9.something mile for the Peachtree. With this race, RV and I are sticking to our commitment to run in 12 races in 2012.
On Saturday, Feb. 11, we ran the Marietta Mardi Gras 5K. That race was particularly special because I was running to honor Sherry Arnold.
This beloved mother, wife and educator was abducted during an early morning run in Montana on Jan. 7. Hundreds of mother runners across the country ran in her memory that Saturday, and I am glad that I was one of them.
