Weekend activities were in celebration of Sandy. The Crack Turtles wouldn't ever have come to be without her influence. Diva, the Toad, ATB and Bad Ass... all crossed off a bucket list that I never knew I had.
When I did my first Learn to 5k, I did my "homework" on the sidewalks in Trenton. When I popped into the store one day, Sandy said to me "You need to drink more water." I was shocked and asked how did she know that?! She said, "I drove by and saw you on the sidewalk and your face was far too red. Drink more water." I realized then, Sandy's interest and dedication - even to students like me, who were always going to be Turtles.
So thank you, Sandy. For inspiring great feats, for making me realize the importance of looking after my own health and for your tireless efforts to get me to "drink more water!"
