A few months ago I wrote about a deceased runner memorial that I always see when I do my long runs at White Rock Lake. Please do take the time to read it if you can, as I give details that I won’t in this post (you can skip about halfway down the post to where I start writing about her).
You can read that post HERE.
Back when I wrote my original post, I didn’t know too much about her. A lot of readers wrote in the comments that they were curious about her like I was. I did my best to research her, but couldn’t find too much. I did find her brother on Facebook and Linkedin. I sent him friend requests hoping he would accept and then I could reach out to him…unfortunately he hasn’t yet.
That said, if you scroll down in the comments of the post, you’ll see that I have since gotten comments from a couple of her friends. One was last week. They actually came across my blog when they were searching for her.
They left some very nice messages. One also left a link to her obituary. It was very nice of them to offer some insight into who she was – saying that she was a beautiful person inside and out. I’m glad to hear it.
This past weekend I got a chance to run at that spot for the first time in months. I usually start/end my run where the plaque is. This wasn’t by design – I didn’t notice the plaque until well after I had already established this as a good meeting point (as I said in the original post, it is kind of hidden).
When I finished my run, I went to the spot where the plaque is to stretch (like I always do). I said a few words to her to let her know she wasn’t forgotten by her friends (and even some of us strangers).
Anyway, that’s just a quick update in case any of you were wondering what ever happened with that. I promise to share if I ever get any more info. If you are reading this and have anything to share, please do!
