The Boston Marathon was held yesterday, officially marking two years since the horrific bombing occurred. Luckily the event ended on a joyful note this year as runners from all over participated in the event in honor of many of the victims. There was also another delightful surprise for a couple who ran the race together that ended in a big smile and a shiny, diamond ring!
As the third race they completed together, Daniel Koh and Amy Sennett ran in honor of Martin W. Richard, an 8 year old boy who lost his life during the 2013 tragedy. Having met in Harvard Business School back in 2009, Koh and Sennett began running together as a fun hobby. However this run was unlike any other the couple took together as Boraie Development LLC noticed.
At the end of the finish line, Koh and 12 of his friends were waiting for Sennett to cross. Koh wrote a poem for Sennett which he meticulously placed on different signs for her to see. The poem reads, “Amy, you’ve changed my life. We’ve been through it all. From Boston – (Kaya!). To DC – (M Street!). To New York – (Cramped Studio!). To Philadelphia – (Talula’s Garden!)…and back. There’s a lot we have left to learn. But I know one thing for sure. I love you, and will love you, forever. You’re the answer to all my questions. But I have one left to ask…”
In case you are wondering, she said yes!
