There’s no doubt that Ralph Wilson Stadium was rocking today for the 2nd annual 50 Yard Finish Half Marathon 5K run and Kid’s Race, but for one couple the day wasn’t just about running.

Shortly after crossing the finish line, Bills fan Rick Daren got down on one knee to propose to his longtime girlfriend Jessica.

“We go to Bills games every year,” said Jessica. “I didn’t know it was coming. It was so exciting!”

The couple met running 3 years ago, so it was only fitting for Rick to propose this way.

“When we met at a race, she had an injury and I brought her ice. We have been attending races together almost every weekend for the last 3 years,” said Rick.

Congratulations Jessica and Rick!
