Snowdon or Otherwise Engaged for Rachel

As days go Saturday the 28th of July started out as quite an ordinary day for our Rachel Harris when she set off to do the Snowdon International Race with her father Chris.

The Harris family have quite a tradition in the Snowdon run with her grandfather having received an award for running it 25 years on the trot. However due to ill health he can no longer continue and so Rachel has taken it up on his behalf and did the run for him.

Rachel is always up for a challenge and is no stranger to sitting in a cold tub of baked beans or having maggots poured over her head for charity.

However even Rachel was stopped in her tracks by what happened at the summit of Snowdon.

Unbeknown to Rachel who should be waiting at the top of the mountain was her boyfriend who had secretly positioned himself to welcome her when she reached the summit.

As Rachel approached him gasping for breath, fatigued and sweating profusely, he threw his arms around her, gave her a big hug, got down on his knees and asked her to marry him and produced a ring.

Rachel was so gob smacked that she said YES.!!!!!

She put the ring on turned around and ran off down the mountain to complete the race.

”Did he really ask me to marry him and I said yes?” Rachel asked her dad Chris. ”I am afraid so” he said.

Rachel promptly floated all the way back to the finish on cloud 9 

Most people get medals at the end of a race. Not many get rings! aaaaaarh
