Finish Line Proposal
Chet-Tyler Cary of Fredericksburg, Va. surprised his girlfriend, Amanda Willging, at the finish line of the 2018 Marine Corps Historic Half by getting down on one knee and proposing. Willing, who turned 27 last week, was completely surprised and responded with an emotional "yes." Willging was overwhelmed with the moment, having just finished her fifth Historic Half in 2:38:02.
