We heard Kelsie before we saw her. Endless enthusiastic screams were being produced to encourage runners in Detroit’s edition of the Mustache Dache, a 5K race which has its runners -male and female- wear mustaches as they compete.
By the time we turned the corner and saw her, Alfie and I were ready to put our sneakers on and join the race.
Kelsie’s friends were standing nearby. They were giggling: a mixture of embarrassment and awe.
