Louisville, Ky. (WHAS11) - Thousands of runners took to the streets for the Kentucky Derby Festival for the mini and full marathon the morning of April 19, and one unsuspecting runner got the surprise of her life.
At the finish line, Ben Griggs waited for his grilfriend, Aly, with a sign held high with the words 'Marry Me?' written on it.
Just like that, in front of thousands of people, the two were engaged.
Other winners that day include Wesley Korir and Caroline Kiptoo, male and female winners of the mini-marathon, and Tezata Dengersa and Birhanu Tadeese, the winners of the full marathon.
