Miami Ultra Runner Stages Wedding Proposal After Running 153 Miles With the Ring

Ah, love. It is the sweetest, most sensational emotion/feeling/verb there is. Many times, when two lovers are ready and willing to spend the rest of their lives together, marriage ensues. And in these modern times, it is only fitting to perform outlandish proposals and film them for all of YouTube to see.

Or, you can just play it old school and get down on one knee in a quiet corner in Greece in front of a giant Spartan statue. That's how Andrei Nana did it.

Except instead of just proposing to the love of his life, Claire Dorotik, Nana first ran a 153-mile ultra marathon carrying the wedding ring.
