5K Virtual Run for Sherry Arnold

  Here we are at 6 am in -36C temp in front of the stainless steel Agassiz ice sculputure at the entrance to Assiniboine Park. Nicole said a nice  biblical verse (Hebrews 12:1-3) in the car before venturing out.

 Running for Sherry. Courage. Strength. Grace. Nicole and I often run in the early morning or late at night, not because we are crazy but because we are moms who find this is often the only free time we have. Sherry's last run was at 6:30 am. We imagine she was trying to fit in a run in her busy day.

I think we both tried hard to stay positive on this run and do it with grace.

It was not too cold to stop and get the chocolate I stashed in this plant a few weeks ago.

 Except someone beat us to it.

Just as we were running by a lady opened up the gates to the Leo Mole garden and said we could run through it.
Finished with a quick warm up by the fire place before heading back.

We were honored to do this run in memory of Sherry Arnold.
