"We gathered on a bright and cool late November morning.
It was one day after Sharon Beth Grays first birthday since leaving this world.
We cried, we shared love, memories and wished our beloved Sharon a happy birthday that echoed into the thin late autumn atmosphere.
Then we ran.
Sharon made us.
Through out Her brilliant and short life Sharon encouraged every one to push themselves, respect themselves and continue to achieve new goals.
Running was a great way for Sharon to stay fit, motivate others and meditate on her day.
After Sharon got me to start running I often called her and spoke to her while I jogged slowly through a quite Lindenhurst at night.
I now call on all of you to talk to me, let Sharon motivate us again and again to get in shape, enjoy nature and each others company.
I hope to continue to meet, learn from and be motivated from all of you this November.
