(NECN: Jackie Bruno) - You've heard of running to the alter, but one couple from Dallas is taking that literally.
They're running the Boston Marathon, and then will get married, all on the same day.
Kerri Johnston and Robert Watling have gone to many places, all while running. Their first date was a 5K.
When it came time for this Dallas couple to get engaged, Robert came up with the perfect proposal, right after they both ran the Chicago Marathon.
“He actually had the ring with him at the race, but, finished about 30 minutes before,” said Kerri.
He didn't pop the question at the finish line, though.
“A few of my friends strongly recommend that I wait until later that evening, as females like to look their best in that moment,” said Robert
When he did propose, she said 'of course! They hatched a plan to get hitched right after they run the Boston Marathon.
“Some people are like ‘surely you're going to shower are you?’ Others are like ‘are you getting married right at the finish line?’ And then you have others who say you people are crazy,” said Kerri.
