CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - Katrina and I met first day of 7th grade. Forever best friends. (This picture is 1994.) She now lives in Baltimore and sent an email today, subject line:
"We're coming to run for your mom."
Inside the email were travel itineraries. Four plane tickets, BWI to CLT for the first weekend of October. I didn't get it, at least at first. Then I checked our Susan G. Komen Charlotte "Race for the Cure" team roster and saw Katrina's name. And her husband's. And their two kids.
I called her in disbelief.
She laughed and said, "Does this mean I get a#TeamMolly shirt?"
YES, Trina. YES! You get a WBTV News #TeamMolly t-shirt. I can't believe you're coming. Except I totally can. Of course you are. You loved my mom, and she loved you back.
For anyone else who wants to meet Katrina and 20,000 others on October 7th, go to the link below. Anyone on our team gets a shirt, but also gets to feel the love of that morning as we fight for a cure. Join us!
Love you, Trina. You're the best bestest friend. And before you yell at me that this picture is old and we don't look like that anymore, a more recent one is below in comments.
See you in October,
