Diagnosed with Type I Diabetes at age 13, Sara Fryia passed away from complications at age 23.
Her dream: out survive longer than the disease. She wanted to wipe out Diabetes.
To keep that dream alive, Sara's mom (Laura) rounded up a group of friends and signed up for the Sudbury Rocks! Half Marathon for Diabetes. A crew of nonrunners, they braved ice, wind and snow to get ready. They called themselves, "Sara's Dream Team." Mike Watson (back, middle) was their coach.
On their shirts: "She's In Here," with a green arrow over their hearts.We were lucky to be part of Sara's legacy once, and we're grateful to Laura to allow us to celebrate Sara's inspiration with this memorial WOD:
