We all know the 2014 Boston Marathon was about a lot more than running. Approximately 36,000 runners took part in Monday’s race, which was the most entrants in the 118-year history of one of the country’s most famous events. Victims of the 2014 Marathon bombings and their friends and family were given a chance to heal. For one runner, the end of the race marked the start of a new chapter in life.

A runner named Greg Picklesiner dropped to one knee when he finished the 26.2-mile journey, but not just to catch his breath. Picklesiner was also proposing to his girlfriend Carla, who was there to cheer him on. She said yes.

When interviewed by a local reporter about his exciting day, Picklesiner did a tremendous job of putting things in perspective.

Congratulations to the happy couple. We wish them all the best.
