“We met at an ugly sweater party that a mutual friend was hosting (after Christmas because the first party was cancelled due to snow!) We were both wearing ratty ski gear. The moment we locked eyes, there was instant chemistry. We didn’t stop hanging out out until four am the next morning. Our first official date was a week later at a university thai restaurant. Colin asked Lisa to marry him at the conclusion of an Olympic-distance triathlon that they both trained together for three months. His intent for the proposal was to completely surprise Lisa, which is exactly what happened. The triathlon was held in Lake Chelan, Washington. Lisa’s dad has property on the Lake, and the night before the triathlon, Colin asked Lisa’s dad, Bill, for Lisa’s hand in marriage. On the race day, Colin finished about twenty minutes before Lisa. He had a few moments to get a drink of water and connect with Lisa’s dad, who was carrying the ring. When Lisa crossed the finish line, the announcer asked Lisa to report to the race podium, and Colin popped the question. Lisa was a little confused, dehydrated and tired. She didn’t quite realise Colin was asking her to marry him after many years of dating, so Colin had to really pressure her for a response. She eventually said “yes” and the rest is history.”
