Couple says ‘I do’ while running the NYC marathon
Mary Donaldson redefined the term “runaway bride” on Sunday when she exchanged vows with her new husband, Raymond, during the New York City Marathon.
With about four miles left until the finish line, the couple was spotted by cameras running along side a bow-tied marriage officiator. The bride wore a lovely white running outfit complete with a tulle veil attached to her baseball cap. The groom appeared to be wearing Under Armour beneath his tuxedo vest.
The newlywed couple said during a post-race interview that they met while running. Where better to tie the knot than on the course of a marathon? The man who married them was a friend who happened to be a minister and an Ironman. Friends and family of the couple met them at mile 22 to keep up for as long as they could during the mobile ceremony.
We’ve heard that planning a wedding is exhausting in itself, so props to these two for doing it during one of the most challenging races known to man (and wife)! We wish them the same endurance during the course of the marriage!
