This Boston Marathon Finisher Got the Best Surprise Ever

When you cross the finish line of a marathon| you experience many unique emotions: relief that the race is over| curiosity about your pace| pride in your performance| and perhaps even a craving for cheeseburgers. But for Boston Marathon runner Amy Sennett| “Is my boyfriend proposing right now?”” was the only thought racing through her head as she completed the 26.2-mile run.

Amy’s boyfriend of six years| Dan Koh| planned his proposal down to the tiniest detail. “”Every .1 mile starting at mile 24.8| a different friend held up a poster with a message to the couple. Each of the 12 posters had a line from a poem that Koh wrote for Sennett|”” reports The Boston Globe.

Amy| you’ve changed my life

We’ve been through it all

From Boston u2014 (Kaya!)

To DC u2014 (M Street!)

To New York u2014 (Cramped Studio!)

To Philadelphia u2014 (Talula’s Garden!)

. . . and back.

There’s a lot we have left to learn

But I know one thing for sure

I love you| and will love you| forever

You’re the answer to all my questions

But I have one question left to ask . . .

As the pair crossed the finish line together| Koh’s boss u2014 none other than Boston Mayor Marty Walsh u2014 presented him with an engagement ring so that he could pop the question to Sennett. She happily said “”yes|”” and the two celebrated with smiles| postrun sweat| and roses. Aww! Read on for more photos of the surprise proposal; we promise it’s the sweetest thing you’ll see all day.


Amy and Dan met at Harvard Business School| where they bonded after becoming running buddies. It makes sense that they’d get engaged after a race!


Gorgeous bling| romantic roses| a loving fiancu00e9| and a kickass marathon pace. What more could a runner want?
