What does it take to make it to the Olympic Games five times? Join us for a very special evening with Tucson's own Abdi Abdirahman as we celebrate the release of his book, Abdi's World.
Known affectionately as The Black Cactus, Abdi was born in Mogadishu, Somalia and came to the US at age 12. His incredible career began at Tucson High School, Pima Community College and The University of Arizona. In 1998 he was named the Pac 10's Male Athlete of the Year and he became a US citizen in 2000. He's competed nationally and internationally in various events, specializing in the 10000 meters and the marathon. In 2020 at 43, Abdi became the oldest American to make an olympic team.
On Thursday, December 16th we welcome Abdi to Fleet Feet Tanque Verde for a book signing, Q&A, and fun run. Don't miss this chance to run with one of the world's greatest runners.
