Sad Endings and the Olympic Trials

It's been a quiet couple of days around here. Friday was a bummer after the news that I hoped wouldn't come did, Beth (SUAR)'s cousin Sherry a runner/mother/teacher who went missing last Saturday was declared dead. Hearing this story really makes me so sad, I tend to live in my own happy world where this type of thing would never happen and the horrible wake up call that these things DO happen has really brought me down. Today I thought of Sherry and Beth while I was running (on my treadmill) and sent up a prayer for Sherry.

This evening I did enjoy the Olympic Marathon Trials, it was great to watch! It came on when I was at work so I spent the day avoiding blogs and Facebook posts that talked about the trials. Watching these runners inspired me! I want to be fast, I want to be my best and push!!

That's all I've got in the tank tonight, nothing fun or interesting, I promise my next post will have some pictures! 


  1. wow, I didn't know that about the missed runner - I was praying for good news:( I'll continue to pray for her sphere of influence -- so tragic!

    I miss the Olympic Marathon Trials today, but I'm loving that you said: "I want to be fast, I want to be my best and push!!" because if you want to be -- you will be!! =)

  2. I've been so sad about Sherry, too... I was really holding out hope that everything would be okay.

    Glad you got to watch them unspoiled! I was so inspired, too!

  3. it really is so sad about Sherry. it makes me so devastated that things like that are even possible to happen!

    hope you had a great run! i also had to avoid FB and twitter so that the results would not be ruined for me...haha!

  4. it is so sad about Sherry, its hard for us to think outside of our world until tragedy does occur.

  5. Beth and Sherry's families have been in my prayers. Its such a sad ending to the story. I hope they can get answers though. - The most I usually worry about on my runs is dogs so it kind of puts things into perspective that it can happen to any of us. Makes me a little more paranoid.
