People say a successful marriage is hard, but I'm gonna be unpopular here and say that finishing the New York City Marathon is harder. I mean, how many lazy people are married? Tons!
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.
"Gladiator," huh? Let's hope they finished with a Gauntlet!
These sweet runners met five years ago at the 20 mile mark of the Portland Marathon and this past Sunday they tied the knot in the same spot, in their finest formal athletic duds of course. Let's hope they made it quick so as not to ruin their times.
