5 Things that rocked my weekend, the second edition…
2. Not quitting on a race where I felt like death warmed over! I ran the Boys and Girls Club’s Battle of Bunker Hill 8k yesterday and I was so sick. I actually had to stop twice to use the bathroom along to route. My stomach was not well. I wanted to quit so bad but I kept up with it and it was worth in it the end. You will see why…
3. As I was approaching the finish line I heard someone yell “Ali!!!!!!” I looked up and saw my friend Jill’s smiling face. Then I looked to her left and saw a very familiar face, one I hadn’t seen in person in over a year! My friend Ashley, who sailed around the world and then landed in Australia for a few months came home for a visit no one knew about. She decided to surprise me at the finish line of the race. When I saw her face, I screamed, cried and tackle hugged her. I almost didn’t cross the finish line, but she grabbed my hand and ran across with me! I certainly caused a scene. Everyone around the race was staring at us. I have never been so surprised and so happy to see someone in all my life. Here we are after the tears dried and a shower was taken. Welcome back to America, girlie!
