2: The Proposal | On the morning of the 15th Flying Pig Marathon. . . . Rick and Laurah woke up and got ready to race, as they did for all marathons. Timing chips were ritualistically placed on shoes, race numbers strategically pinned and energy gels stuffed in pockets. But today would not just be another Flying Pig Marathon to list in their long logs of races; Rick (unbeknownst to Laurah) had something else planned. At the starting line, they decided to begin with the 3:05 pace group and run together as long as possible. Rick kissed Laurah as he did before ever race, looked her in the eyes and said, "I'll see you at the finish line." The gun went off and with thousands of other wide-open runners, Rick and Laurah took the first step of a million more to come. Mile one of the race was fast as runners twisted and turned through downtown Cincinnati between The Banks, The Great American Ballpark, and across Pete Rose Way to the Taylor Southgate Bridge. As Rick and Laurah crossed the bridge into Kentucky, the 3:05 pacer pointed to the western sky at a beautiful rainbow and exclaimed, "You see that rainbow? Thats good luck! You're going to have an amazing race!" | The marathon course made its way through downtown Cincinnati before ascending into Eden Park. The miles began to accumulate and the hill became steeper. Laurah slowly began to pull away from Rick. He let her go. He let her run her race. He knew he would see her at the the finish line.

3: From that point on Rick and Laurah ran separate races, as they often did. Although the two had met at mile 14 of the Flying Pig Marathon, they had very different racing styles. Laurah therefore did not think anything was out of the ordinary. In fact, she did not realize Rick was not with the pace group until she reached the top to the hills. She hoped she would see him when the race turned back on itself in Marrimont; see if his race was going well, if he was having a good day. Laurah kept Ricks words in her head as she continued past by Mile 14: "Fly like a falcon, fight like a bear, race like I'm right behind you." And so she ran faster. | The crowds grew thicker and the cheering got louder as runners descend onto Riverside Drive. Rick kept his pace steady and smiled at friends cheering him on in the last miles of the race. All the while he had a small parcel wrapped securely in his pocket. A parcel only he knew about. A parcel so important he had to carry it with him through the entire marathon. At the same moment, Laurah was taking her last strides of her fastest marathon ever. Crossing the finishline, she collapsed from exhaustion into a the volunteers arms. She smiled knowing how proud Rick would be of her 5th place finish. In hear head, Laurah heard him in hear him saying, "I'll see you at the finishline." and so she waited. Waited for Rick, as he always did for her at the end of races. | At mile 22, Rick began to remove the small parcel that had been safely pinned to his back pocket for the last 24 miles. He carefully, opened the a ziplock bag which had protected the precious parcel from the threat of rain which had loomed over runners the entire race. Inside lay a small leather pouch, and inside another plastic bag which contained tissue paper. Finally, from the tissue paper, Rick removed a beautiful pear-shaped engagement ring, which he carefully slipped over his little finger and held tightly for the last two miles. In the distance, Laurah saw Rick's signature green visor rise over the last hill. He crossed the finishing line into Laurah's arms. To her surprise, Laurah felt Rick sink to the ground. She flashed back to her own finish and when she collapsed from exhaustion and desperately tried to hold him up, afraid that he might fall. But Rick was not falling. Applause echoed through the finishline as Rick down got on his knee and pulled out a the ring he had carried, wrapped and safe, for 26.2 miles.
