I know that Sally has touched the lives of so many runners and athletes across the country. I think we can really do something great with this site. Sally has inspired us all, and anything is possible.
How cool would it be to get a race run in her name in every single state? I think Sal would love that.

I know we only spent a short amount of time together, but in that time I have wonderful memories. You always made me laugh, and in the world of “elite marathoning”, where one can feel very swallowed up and lost, you made me feel comfortable and welcome. My dad was so proud of you for winning the PF Chang’s race in January, he cut out all the news paper articles and mailed them to me because he knew we were friends. Last Saturday, I dedicated a 2 mile race to you. I had actually been banned from running in it by my doctor because of a foot injury, but when I heard the terrible news of your passing, I decided I would run anyway, in honor of you. The race director let me speak to the crowd before the race started and I told them that I was running for you, and asked that they run in celebration of your life. I wore my pink “Sally Socks” and many of my close friends also wore bright funky knee high socks as a way of paying their respects. I know there were people running for you everywhere that day. And I know we will continue to run for you forever. Your contagious smile and energy will be missed, but never forgotten.
