A runner in the 2015 Boston Marathon was reunited with his wedding ring after it slipped off at mile 23 in the race, according to the Boston Globe.
Jeff Glaser lost the ring when he was taking off his gloves, the Globe reported. A search for the ring in the area, about three miles from the finish line, turned up nothing.
“I was a little upset that I had lost my ring, but I tried to keep it all in perspective,” Glaser told the Globe. “There are a lot bigger problems than a missing wedding ring, especially when you consider what the city has been through the last few years.”
When he called race organizers later after finishing the race, he learned that another runner found the ring and brought it to the medical tent.
