Running proposal: couple's marathon ends with a ring

Normally, running a 42.1km marathon would be the highlight of one's day. Not Kiranee Narabal.

The Phuketian had no idea that once she and her running partner/boyfriend Kerati Charoenwattanachai crossed the finish line at 9th Laguna Phuket International Marathon last Sunday (June 8), the rest of their lives would begin.

Just moments after the couple finished their five-hour and ten-minute run, friends encircled the group and Kerati dropped down to one knee. In front of family and friends, Kerati popped the question to Kiranee – asking her to marry him – and she said yes.

“ I couldn't stop laughing so much about this, it was a very wonderful moment,” Kiranee told The Phuket News, “we reached the finish line and I was really tired because of the heat. I wanted to go but people tried to make sure I stayed. Then Thanyapura cameras came, and friends gathered.

“He pulled out the ring he kept with him along the whole way of 42 km. I didn't even notice that he had it,” she said.

Last week's event was the fourth marathon the couple, who met at university, had run together. They reconnected after a few years apart last November when Kiranee asked Kerati to help her get through her first marathon. Since then, the couple have done several events together and, as Kiranee said, it was a match made in runs.

“We just had a feeling after we look each other in the eye and felt that something good had just happened,” she said.
