I joined Quinte FunRunners in 2016, after I retired. I had been running consistently for a decade and still not found any joy in running. But I wanted to get better, so joined one of Sandy's clinics. Fast forward 4 years, and despite my best efforts, I am still no faster, yet meeting Sandy, Patti and Stephanie has changed my life. I discovered triathlon through Sandy's clinics and Cookie Tris and it gave me a new perspective. I also started running outdoors in the winter and finally found my bliss. But the greatest gift I have received has been the warm welcome into the wonderful, supportive community that Sandy created.
I never would have thought possible just a few years prior. Sandy, you have influenced me and so many others in ways you might not realize and you will be missed. Best wishes in your retirement!
