Tammy and Joshua's Half Marathon Proposal
How We Met: We met in December 2011 through a mutual friend, he insisted on meeting me once he saw my picture on Facebook. I agreed to go out with him and on our first date we both knew we found the one. One of my passions is running and I have been doing it since a little before I met him, but he was the one to encourage me to start doing half marathons so I did my first one in 2012 with him by my side cheering me on, and he was there for the next 3 years at every single run as well (5) in total. But this last run was particularly special.
How He Asked: At the end of every run we always take a picture together, and to my surprise this time he had four of my closest friends hiding, and as my mom was taking our picture they scrambled behind and held up their signs that read “will you marry me?” and I had no idea they were there until they called my name and I turned around and while I was reading the sign he was down on one knee. It all happened so fast and I cried like a baby, but after all of the excitement I realized that a bunch of my other family members were there hiding as well and they all came out to celebrate our engagement with champagne. The proposal couldn’t have been any more perfect and I will remember this day forever.
