Triathlon Finish Line Surprise!

My friend Paige completed her first Sprint Triathlon this past Saturday! That's a 300 yard swim (in the Gulf of Mexico!!!), 10 mile bike ride, and 2 mile run! She did AMAZING!!!

Several of our Sole2Soul Sisters loaded up in a van and traveled to cheer her on! But we also knew something that she didn't! At the finish line there would be quite a surprise waiting for her! ;-)

We travel in style! One of our sisters owns the local skating rink and offered to drive us all there so we could all ride together!


When we got there we looked in the sky and saw a beautiful rainbow!!! I hoped Paige saw it as she prepared to swim.


We didn't get to see Paige before the swim but we did get to see her as she was transitioning out of the water and headed to her bike! I think she was shocked so many of us were there!


She transitioned pretty quickly onto her bike! And yeah we yelled and cheered at her a ton while she was getting ready! ;-)


And then she was off for her 10 mile bike ride!!!



While we were waiting on Paige we spotted a celebrity! Why yes...that IS Brett Favre!!! My friend Jennifer was quite smitten with him and posed to get her picture with him as he ran by! Hilarious!!!



Before we knew it...Paige was coming in from the bike portion!!! She was all smiles!




Next was the 2 mile run! I knew she was good from here on out because running is her strong suit!


We headed to the finish line where the surprise would occur. And we had a nervous but excited boyfriend....waiting on his love to finish so he could PROPOSE!!!! :-)


Finally Paige crossed the finish line! And then she saw the sign and her man down on one knee! Her face is priceless!!!



Here she is saying, "Are you sure?" It was so cute! And so Paige!!!



And....she said YES!!! :-)




I am soooo happy for Paige and Billy!!! It was so special to be a part of one of my best friend's amazing day!!! She is loved by so many people!!!


CONGRATULATIONS Paigey and Billy!!! I wish you a lifetime of happiness!!!!

QOTD: Have you ever witnessed a finish line proposal?
