LOUISVILLE — A photo of an officer joining a woman in the final stretch of a 10K run has gone viral.
WHAS 11 reports Lt. Aubrey Gregory encouraged runner Asia Ford to complete the 10K Rodes City Run Saturday after she began to stall around the fourth mile.
“He asked me if I wanted to stop and I was like, ‘No,’ we have two more miles to go,” Ford told the news organization.
Ford has been on a mission to improve her health after she weighed in at 474-pounds and her ex-husband lost a limb to diabetes.
With Lt. Gregory at her side, she finished the race as photos were taken of the pair.
“When I watched her approach and I started to hear people scream and I let her go right there before the end and to see her raise her hands, there aren’t words to express the way I felt seeing her be successful,” Gregory told WHAS 11.
