Iron Mandy

1MANDYMandy responded to our ad, “Run away and join the Circus!” To demonstrate her talents, she showed up with a dozen or so plastic cups and immediately set to work stacking and unstacking them, it was a blur of creativity and dexterity, she was added to the crew on the spot! Mandy came to us after a career as an elementary school teacher, we determined her background might come in handy when dealing with the mindset of the average runner on race morning; at the least we were sure she could set up the cups at the aid stations quickly! The fact that Mandy has an uncle that makes Scrumpy Hard Cider hardly influenced our decision. Mandy has been instrumental in making the Martian Kids marathon the premier youth running event in the state with over 2,000 Kids annually. It was Mandy who came up with the idea to dress up over a thousand runners as the statue of Liberty and bring us Guinness World Record Fame; she was also instrumental bringing the word skedaddle back into vogue and putting the Thirsty 3 on the map!
