When Runners Wed

When runners wed, they don’t just send out typical formal invitations. They make you feel like you’ve been registered for a special race.

When runners wed, all runner guests scrap their morning training runs for the wedding (or at least they postpone it for later in the day.)

When runners wed, they share their vows for all running friends and guests to hear with even more passion than when they ran their first marathon.

When runners wed, “something new” is a new pair of Asics GT-2160’s for the groom…

…and New Balance 760’s for the new couple at the reception.

When runners wed, guests are advised to toss their formal shoes away and lace up into running shoes for a more comfortable  reception.

When runners wed, they’re in it for the long run.

To my dearest friends Hector and Mayen, I feel blessed and fortunate to have been a witness to your love—from the moment I saw you together at Secondwind, to training for TBR Dream Marathon, until you both walked out of the chapel hand-in-hand last Friday. ┬áMay you have many more years of laughter, love, and kilometers to run together.

Hec, I told you you would end up with a runner!
