This Man Proposed To His Girlfriend In The Middle Of Her First Marathon
And people are hella pissed.
A man proposed to his girlfriend as she ran in the New York City marathon and the people of the internet are angry.
Kaitlyn Curran was running her first-ever marathon on Sunday when she spotted her boyfriend Dennis Galvin near the 16-mile mark.
Unsurprisingly, she ran over to say a quick hello, when Dennis decided to halt his girlfriend’s race – by getting down on one knee to propose.
In a viral video, Kaitlyn accepts his proposal, hugs her new fiancé, places the engagement ring on her finger, and then proceeds to rejoin her fellow marathoners and continue running.
SHE SAID YES: A woman who was running in Sunday’s New York City Marathon was at mile 16 when her longtime boyfriend hopped over the barrier and dropped to one knee. She ended the day with a medal around her neck and a ring on her finger. https://t.co/8xbZ6P24RM pic.twitter.com/YizdEJYOhc

Despite Kaitlyn being happy to be all engaged and what not, the people of the internet are angry at her fella for taking away from the big day she probably spent months preparing for. Here’s what they’re saying.
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.
