Very sad news. Here is my suggestion for a tribute (and it's only a suggestion) ...

Maybe we could do a "Run One for Sammy" Day. Maybe this coming Sunday, May 22nd. Do your run, but do at least 50 meters all-out in his memory. Hundreds of runners going all-out, even briefly, would seem to be an appropriate tribute to the man.

I went for a trail five miler earlier today, and I said out loud in the last quarter mile, "this is for you, Sammy."

I then pushed as hard as this old body can move.
