Hi bees!!! So after a few weeks of knowing my Boyfriend or Best Friend was up to something, and lurking on these boards just waiting for my time… it happened! He proposed!
We ran a half marathon together on Sunday. After we crossed the finish line (which happened to be in his favorite college football stadium), he grabbed my arm and said “I need to find a place to stretch.” We went off to the side, and I started stretching, and he said: “Well, I really wanted to get down on one knee, but if I did, I don’t think I could get back up.” And when I looked up there was the ring!! It was so perfect and I can’t believe it 🙂 He even surprised me with a backyard BBQ with all our friends that night.
Just more proof that he’s a great guy! He ran the whole 13.1 miles with the ring in his pocket. Later he told me he was terrified he was going to drop it!!
Bring on the wedding planning!

Awww cute!! My Fiance said he thought about proposing to me when I finished the Boston marathon last year but he knew I wanted a private proposal so he didn’t do it. I’ve seen several finish line proposals, it’s very cute!! Congratulations!

Aww that’s so sweet! I’ve seen a couple of race proposals and I love them because it’s easy to get the surprise factor. “Is he going to do it?” would so not be on my mind at the end of a race!
Congrats! Ring shot?

Oh my goodness, how sweet! I bet he was so nervous about losing the ring somewhere along the 13 miles. Congratulations to you both! (And welcome to Weddingbee!)

Congratulations! I actually ran the Lincoln Half Marathon on Sunday too! I am from Nebraska originally, but now live in Vermont and came back to run Lincoln because it’s such a great, well organized race. What a perfect proposal!

@vermonster: Can’t forget the ring shot! It’s not the best pic because I took it right when I got home to send it to my momma. I’ll work on getting better ones soon!

@lalalorelai44: Congratulations to both of you on the race and engagement! My FH proposed before I ran my first half-marathon in February. I think race proposals are the best! 🙂 And kudos to him for going 13 miles with a ring in his pocket!
