Losing 200 Pounds Changed Her Life, but It’s When She Wanted to Quit A 10K? That’s the Real Story!

Asia Ford lost over 200 pounds, and wanted to celebrate by running a 10k.  Five miles into the race she started to lose her breath, and that’s when something amazing happened


“It was like my breath was being taken from me,” she tells WAVE 3. Thats’s when Lt. Aubrey Gregory of the Louisville Metro Police Department grabbed her hand.

Gregory tells WAVE 3 News:

“The EMS guys got out to check on her and she said I’m not stopping, I’m not stopping,” he said.

“So I said I’m not going to let her stop we’re going to do this together.”

The two then crossed the finish line together along with Ford’s son Terrence. To quote Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer, “this is what a compassionate city looks like.”
