We absolutely love Mallory Brooks. She is such a beautiful person both inside and out. I always look forward to seeing her every year and we were super excited that she was going to be our MC at the race. Her sister-in-law and I went to school together and she lost a baby a few years before I lost Mamie. We were able to get her a plate done which was so awesome and a very special gift from some of her close friends. Mallory totally gets it you know.... she went through it with her brother and sister-in-law and she just gets it. We had a great interview and lots of good laughs while we were there as well.
Brit and I stopped at Community Bakery for some much needed coffee after that early morning interview. It was nice getting to sit and enjoy a hot cup of coffee. :)
