LEXINGTON, SC (WIS) - A Midlands couple will always remember this year's Jailbreak 5K in Lexington Co.
The road race had several participants, but for Kristin Weaver, 25, and Ian Loughlin, 23, May 27 will be the day he proposed at the finish line.
Loughlin finished the race before she did, and as she approached the end, a number of supporters were there with pink signs saying "Will you marry me?"
Weaver naturally said yes.
The Lexington County Sheriff's Department tweeted the good news the day of the race.
"They may have crossed the Jailbreak 5K finish line, but it's the start of something new for these two!" the tweet said.
Weaver continued to express her love of her new fiance and the surprise on her own Facebook page Sunday.
Kristen said she was blindsided by the proposal, despite hearing rumors about Ian having a ring.
"When we first started dating he said he'd never run races with me, but he'd wait at the finish line for me to cross," Weaver said. "A little over a year later he's done 15 races with me lol so it was an absolutely perfect way for him to propose. He wasn't lying when he said he'd be waiting at the finish line."
Congratulations to Kristin and Ian!
