There’s no doubt about her love and she immediately said yes but people judged the man for stopping his girlfriend midway during her race and feels that he could have waited.

She ended the race with a medal around her neck, finishing one of the most prestigious marathons in the world as well as a ring!


Many people had something to say. A Twitter user said, "If he really loved her, he would've waited until after the race, given her a massage, taken her to a nice dinner, left her alone all night so she could have a nice long rest, woke her up the next morning with homemade waffles and strawberries, then asked her to marry him. Geez."
