Fairfield couple gets engaged at race’s finish line
FAIRFIELD - Tara McKenna and Mark Marston had something extra special to be thankful for on Thursday.
At the finish line of the 41st Annual Pequot Road Runners Thanksgiving Day five-mile race, Marston got down on his knee and proposed to McKenna.
He held out a sparkling diamond engagement ring in a tiny black box and presented it to the McKenna.
McKenna took off her glove and accepted the bring from McKenna.
With temperatures in the 20s and a brisk wind, it was a warm ending to cold morning.
The newly engaged couple both live in Faifield.
