Tom Sturak was one of the most influential people in our sport. He, Pete Peterson & Goeff Hollister, were sports marketing in track & field and running. A man full of piss & vinegar ( I love that term, but it applies here), Sturak had time for those who loved the sport.
Mike Fanelli, one of our sport’s keenest observers, wrote the following notes about Tom. Tom is having a tough time and his health bills are adding up. Runblogrun asked that you give up that six pack of imported Belgian ale and two burritos as large as your head and, instead, send the $20 to the address noted below. You will be doing a good thing.

– your pal, Mike Fanelli
