Virtual Run for Sherry Arnold- February 11, 2012

On January 7, 2012, my cousin Sherry, age 43, left her house in the small town of Sidney, Montana at 6:30 a.m. for an early morning run. She didn’t always run in the morning because as a teacher, it was often difficult to fit in runs before she headed to Sidney High School to teach math. January 7 was a Saturday, however, and Sherry had a bit more time to spare. After her run she planned to meet her sister, Rhonda, and head out to their parent’s ranch a few miles outside of town. Her husband, Gary, had gone for a walk at 5:30 a.m. and when he returned home he could tell that Sherry had already left for her run because of the toothpaste splatters in the sink and a light that was on in the kitchen.

Sherry often ran within the town limits and January 7 was no exception. When Sherry did not come home later that morning, however, her husband began to worry. He called the police and a search ensued. By 3:00 p.m. hundreds of volunteers were searching for Sherry and only one clue had been found, Sherry’s right Brook’s running shoe.

My aunt called to tell me that “something bad had happened in Montana.” As the details unfolded, a weight sat in the pit of my stomach. I hoped for the best, but feared the worst. Please find her. Please bring her home.

For several days there was no sign of Sherry. On the seventh day, a tip was received on the FBI’s tip line that led to the arrest of two men, one in North Dakota and one in South Dakota. One of the men confessed to killing Sherry. She had been abducted at 6:40 a.m., only about a mile from her house.

Sherry’s body has not yet been found.

Sherry’s traumatic and heinous death has shocked, angered and saddened her small community. On a much larger scale, it has also rocked the running world from coast to coast and abroad. How could something so random, violent and senseless happen to someone so giving, someone loved by so many?

We have so many emotions. As mothers, runners, and teachers,  we fear it could have been us. Our hearts break for her students, her family, her community. We feel things we don’t know how to express and we cry for someone who we have never met. We hope she did not suffer and we hope that she found peace in her final moments. The human connection often feels deepest during tragedy. These past three weeks this connection has been alive, pulsing and powerful. The goodness has poured out of each and every one of you, demonstrating that good overpowers evil.

Many of you have told me that you have dedicated your runs and races to Sherry. I have talked about wanting to do a planned virtual run in her honor. Her family has given me their blessing and Races 2 Remember has so generously donated their time to creating a running bib for Sherry.

The virtual run will be on Saturday, February 11 at 9 a.m. MST.

  • Mark your calendars
  • Print out a running bib and pin it to your shirt
  • Gather your friends, your running club members, your families
  • If it’s wet where you are, “laminate” your bib with postage tape and punch holes in it
  • If that time doesn’t work, go when you can
  • GO. Run as far and as long as you want. Walk, hike, cycle, rollerblade if you don’t want to or can’t run.
  • Please share this on your blogs, Facebooks and Twitters
  • Keep it simple. Just run with Sherry on your minds and hearts. 

Click HERE to print the bib

If it feels right, please blog about your run and let me know. I’m going to post links to those posts so her family and friends can read them. If you take pictures, send them to be at beth@shutupandrun.net so that I can post them here.

My goal is to get the MOST love, momentum and energy moving in honor of Sherry. This run symbolizes the beginning if healing and honors a woman who was courageous, strong and loved by so many.

For those of us in the Denver/Boulder/Longmont area I will be organizing a group run at the Boulder Reservoir that morning. I hope we can get a huge clan together and make the earth MOVE!! Stay tuned.

You may have noticed a “donate” button on my side bar. If it is within your means, please consider a donation to Sherry’s family. The funds will go to Sherry’s children, Holly and Jason.

A version of this post and information about the virtual run will appear on the Runner’s World Other Voices blog later this week.

A Facebook page has been set up for this event HERE.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for caring about Sherry and her family and for running in her honor.

  35. I am crying reading this. So well spoken and lovely. I'm sitting in the hospital reading this. I won't be able to do much for awhile, as doc put me on complete rest, but my main goal is to do this for Sherry at my upcoming 5k on March 24th, along with many of my friends and family. That race is especially emotional for me, bc the funds go to colon cancer which a very close family member of mine died of, and I never skip it...even PR'd it 2 yrs ago. I will pass the word, and I'm looking forward to not only dedicating it to my Grandma, but someone so amazing as Sherry as well. What happened to her continues to haunt me, yet has taught me ways to be more cautious out there running bc we never know what a day may hold. Thanks Beth<3

  104. I'm new to your blog but not new to running. I heard about Sherry through a FB post and have followed her story every since. I, too, belong to that group who was aware that bad things could happen to good people, but not to me. Sherry's story makes me anxious about my runs and has given me a lot to think about how I would react. I love to run, it keeps me sane in and in shape. I love the running community. I love being outdoors. Sherry's memory will live on. I would be honored to participate in the Virtual Run for Sherry.

    ReplyDelete
  105. I'm in -- marked it on my calendar.

    ReplyDelete
  106. It seems like every run I do since hearing that she was missing has been "for Sherry." In all my years of running I have never been so profoundly effected by a runner's disappearance. And sadly over the years there have been far too many. This weekend I forced myself outside even though I was in less familar surroundings, armed with a need to not allow fear to keep me from living and a heightened awareness I ran and though of Sherry, her family and you and yours.
    It's sad to feel that I may owe my own safety to someone I can never thank. In light of that, Beth I thank you. Thanks for sharing this challenging and personal thing with me with us all.
    I will run for Sherry on the 11th and finish the run that Sherry can not.

    ReplyDelete
  107. Hi Beth!

    I've been following you for awhile now.... sorry about the lack of commenting. I am IN for this run. I would also love to post about this virtual run on my website. My site is about swimming...but running is a great dry-land workout :) Is there any specific way you would want it posted? May I place the bib picture or do you want me to just refer back to your site? (which I will do anyway)

    My heart grieves for you and your family. I will share the support/info with as many people as I can.
    -Meg

    ReplyDelete
  108. Hey Meg: absolutely, feel free to use the picture and the link to print out the bib. I really appreciate you spreading the word.

    It is sadly ironic that the "Finish Chelsea's Run" in San Diego is coming up as well. Chelsea King went out for a run in early 2010 after school and met a terrible end. I hate these reminders of how careful we need to be.

    I will share Sherry's run....

District and it just so happens that they are having their Annual Sweetheart Race that day and have printed out a ton of the bibs and even included Running for Sherry on the sleeve of the shirts!!! I will try to get some pictures of the participants of our race. You all are in our thoughts and prayers in Colstrip MT!

  149. Sherry's got 8 miles from me on the 11th! And I'd be lying if I said that was all she got from me. I've been thinking about her every single time I've been out for a run since this happened. Much love to you and the rest of the Arnold family. I hope they find her soon.

    And I've spread the word. There will be at least a few of us Billings, Montana folk out pounding the pavement in her honour on the 11th.

  168. I'm in, but on Feb 12 - I'm doing a half marathon that day. I've posted about the virtual run on my blog, and the donation drive for her children.

    Much love to you and your family, Beth. It reassures me to know that you know there is still good in this world and you are asking for the good to come together and honour Sherry.

    To Sherry.
