Runner proposes to girlfriend at Broad Street Run finish line

Kaitlyn Foley got more than a medal at the finish line of the 35th annual Broad Street Run this Sunday!

Foley and boyfriend James Bowman lined up at the start of the race together — but it was more than just friendly competition that pushed Bowman to beat his girlfriend to the finish line. Shortly after completing the race, Bowman made the day even more memorable by staging a proposal.
