Tim's Take: Robert Espinoza

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - There will be a race on Saturday, a race that Robert Espinoza helped get started.

And you can say that about pretty much every Saturday in Savannah and about the owner of Fleet Feet Sports who was instrumental to the growth of running here.

Espinoza passed away on Thursday, but he will not be forgotten.

People are looking for ways to memorialize Espinoza, and they will be at all the races he organized. People are leaving messages of sympathy at the store and sharing memories of the man who had an impact on anybody who slipped on a pair of running shoes in Savannah.

Every race in Savannah that Espinoza touched will be looking for ways to memorialize him, and I know Tunnel to Towers will.

But a lot of people seem to believe keeping the Savannah running community as strong as it's been would be the best tribute.
