If you were out at Decker Lake on July 12, 2009 for the Couples Tri, then you may have witnessed a wedding proposal. The soon-to-be bride and groom both participated in the triathlon on that hot summer day, with the surprise proposal occurring directly after she crossed the line.
This was the first wedding proposal that we know of at a triathlon produced by Jack & Adam's/High Five Events. It was exciting to witness such a happy moment.
Here is the note and picture we received from Diana's friend, Denise:
My friend was recently proposed to at the Couples Tri at Decker Lake. Her fiance had her friends and family stand at the finish with posters ("Di Will You Marry Me?) and was waiting for her at the finish - he barely beat her. KVUE Austin news did a story on the proposal, and the piece was also picked up by the Dallas news affiliate.
