Lauren and Frank

After I said yes!

How We Met: I met Frank in 2008 at a bar for a mutual friends birthday party.  After FOUR years of him asking me on a date I finally said yes!  He said I was well worth the wait because after our first date we both knew we found someone very very special.  We have been inseparable ever since.

How He Asked: Frank is a group fitness instructor for Equinox.  Every year Equinox participates in an amazing fundraising event called Cycle for Survival sponsored by Sloan Kettering Cancer Society.  They have a kick off event in Times Square where they set up hundreds of cycling bikes under the lights of broadway.  Frank is one of the instructors for the event and he does an amazing job motivating and entertaining all the riders.

This year, for his last song he played Sinatra’s New York, New York.  In the middle of the song he jumped off stage and walked right up to me while I was riding on the bike.  He got down on one knee and asked me to marry him.  The crowds went crazy!  I said yes and they screamed even louder.  It was so magically under all the lights and he even invited my best friends and family to come cheer us on.

Great shot from a rider!

Great shot! I love how Frank is laughing and I'm so excited I found it necessary to wave my pom pom!
