Boston Marathon runner proposes at finish line

By Julianne Cassidy. CREATED Apr 21, 2014

After surviving last year's tragic Boston Marathon, runner Greg Picklesimer chose to take his life into his own hands this race. That decision included a finish-line proposal to girlfriend Carla White.

“After last year I realized the people you love and your life can be taken so quickly," Picklesimer tells CBS Boston. “I didn’t want to lose that so I decided to come back and seal the deal.”

“I’ve waited my whole life for him so this is the happiest day of my life,” White tells CBS Boston. “I’m glad he’s safe and he ran well.”

Reports also note that another couple was engaged on Heartbreak Hill Monday.
