Californians Andrew Keith and Sandra Parker were married last Saturday at The Gladiator Rock 'n Run, a marathon that includes a mud pit and other obstacles. Sandra wore an eight-dollar dress she purchased from Goodwill and clad her bridesmaids in the similar thrifty duds so they could get all down and dirty. The pair chose this wacky event because their first date was a Saturday morning run together.
