Kaitlyn Curran ran the New York City Marathon last Sunday. Her boyfriend, Dennis Galvin, was cheering her on from the sideline. When Kaitlyn passed him, he had a huge surprise for her.
Kaitlyn had just passed the 16 miles when her boyfriend suddenly jumped over the fence, went on one knee and popped her the big question. According to his cousin, Kathleen Figueroa, Dennis was quite nervous beforehand. Luckily Kaitlyn said 'yes.' "She cried a little bit, said yes, hugged him and then said 'OK, I have to go finish my race,'" Figueroa told CBS News.
Kathleen proceeded the marathon with a ring on her finger and a big smile on her face. She finished in little less than four and a half hours.
How Twitter Got Upset
Not everybody was charmed by Dennis's proposal. People came to Twitter to express their discontent. They think Dennis should've waited with his plan until the end of the marathon.
He couldn't propose to her at the finish line?— BLOOP! (@susiemcdonnell) 5 november 2018
If you've ever trained for a marathon, the amount of time that goes into, is a lot. To be interrupted for a damn proposal is insane. https://t.co/bW6ocBqwuQ— Joel Macke (@NotJoelMacke) 6 november 2018
If he really loved her, he would've waited until after the race, given her a massage, taken her to a nice dinner, left her alone all night so she could have a nice long rest, woke her up the next morning with homemade waffles and strawberries, then asked her to marry him.

Guy totally ruined her marathon time https://t.co/75TTF0dVww— Liam Martin (@LiamWBZ) 5 november 2018
Others are just happy for the couple. "Maybe he just knew that the time wasn't that big a deal to her and she loved him, so she said "Yes" and that's all there is to it," one of the Twitter users said. "Seems like some people who aren't married are getting well upset about these two people being busy with their awful happiness." And we couldn't agree more.
