BURLINGTON, Vt. — They ran a marathon — then they got married.
Tony DiPadova and Judy Desmarais both ran the KeyBank Vermont City Marathon in Burlington on Sunday.
DiPadova finished first, in about four hours and 20 minutes. She finished about an hour later, wearing a white veil and clutching a bouquet at the finish line.
The Burlington Free Press reports the couple from Claremont, N.H., then walked about 50 feet to the shore of Lake Champlain and got married.
Desmarais said it was a crazy idea — but of course, she said yes.
The couple, both 49, said they plan to return to Burlington next year and run the marathon again for their first anniversary.
