Louisiana Marathon Winners
BATON ROUGE- It's not a gold medal, but this prize is even better.
27-year-old runner Morgan Pittman ran the Louisiana Marathon Sunday and when she crossed the finish line she had quite the surprise waiting for her.
It was her boyfriend Chase Poche waiting on one knee ready to say four simple words, "Will you marry me."
Making her last strides she immediately bent down to hug and kiss him as she said, "yes."
The crowd broke into applause and congratulated the newly engaged couple.
While Pittman's win was one-of-a-kind, marathon officials say a grand total of 912 other runners had a reason to be pleased- they all completed the race, and 86 of these athletes qualified for the Boston Marathon in April.
