Couple gets engaged at Buffalo Marathon

Local News

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — At least one runner in yesterday’s Buffalo Marathon had her heart racing for more than one reason.

Kristin Waldby crossed the finish line Sunday, and was quickly met by her boyfriend.

Little did she know that she was getting more than just a congratulations from him.

Andrew Torres explained why he chose that moment to propose.

“I think she loves running as much as she loves me, so I wanted to add to the happiness of her finally finishing the half marathon,” Torres said.

Torres said he was not worried about Waldby saying ”no” because they’ve been together for nine years.
