Congratulations Kath and Derek!

Katherine has been one of my bestest running buddies since moving back to Burlington. Her brother ran at St. Lawrence with Will and when she and I met, it was mutual adoration at first run. We’ve run through everything and on every big day of our lives. A 10 miler in the snow and ice and near miss with the snow plow the morning before I got engaged. An hour on the indoor track as we picked my wedding day and fussed over wedding details we’d never even considered. The run ON my wedding day to keep me sane. The otherwise normal run when she casually mentioned she’d “met someone” and thought he “might be the one.” The run when she told me he WAS the one. A million and a half miles later, I get to celebrate her marriage to Derek today!

Snuggling as always, minutes before I got engaged.

Patiently doing 9 million buttons on my dress, which may explain why she opted for a zipper on hers...
