As part of her weight-loss process, she started running. Seriously running. To the point where she inspired this former runner to start running again.
And today, I watched her run her first 5K race EVER. Ever, ever, EVER!!! She had a great time and even finished with a thumbs-up and a big smile. She made me so proud and I've had that image of her in the last quarter-mile stuck in my head all day long.
I'm so glad I was there.
Especially since through ESP, we both wound up with the same hairdo!
But really, I was SOOOOOO... happy to be there.
Congrats, Ashley! Keep up the good work (including a race on my wedding day next weekend!!!)!
Psh, because we're all cowards on the starting line. :-)
