Marathon couple forgoes personal best to get married during race10/9/2012
Katie Holmes (no, not that Katie Holmes) and Eric Johansson reconnected in Portland, Ore., during the city's marathon five years ago. Love bloomed after the chance meeting between old friends and the pair, who now have a child, recently decided to get hitched. Naturally, they did so at the 20-mile mark of this year's Portland Marathon. What's more romantic than pausing during a gruelling race to swap vows in front of your loved ones before you take off running to finish the final 6.2 miles? Nothing, if you're a marathon runner, we guess. The bride wore white, with a veil adorably attached to her baseball cap, and the groom wore a "Dri-Fit tuxedo shirt," for all those out there taking style notes. Congratulations, you crazy kids!
