Man Proposes By Cycling Around Marathon With Proposal Sign

A keen marathon runner could not believe his eyes when he noticed that a sign his supportive boyfriend was holding up during a race was asking for his hand in marriage. Zachary Zulkowsky, 35, took a second to realize what was happening as he stopped mid-race at the Chicago Marathon to read the sign his boyfriend, Samuel Paul, 31, was holding in the air. Then, when the moment hit, a tearful Zachary answered, "Yes," before heading over for a loving embrace worthy of the Love Actually-style proposal that Samuel had pulled off. To date, Zachary has run 19 marathons, and Samuel wanted to make the proposal sometime special, tied to a hobby Zachary is clearly passionate about.
