This bold romantic's wholesome proposal could've been better timed. Wait for the end of the race, maybe? Well, love can blind a man after all. His heart was in the right place, so that counts for something.
If you're like me, juggling is something that will always remain a mystery. No matter how hard I try, the balls only go in one direction: down. But that's not the case for everyone. In fact, for some people, juggling is so easy that they decided to combine it with another sport: jogging. Jogging + juggling = joggling. Thus, the weirdest sport (and most inaccessible for uncoordinated people) was born.
According to the Reddit post that started this photoshop battle, this man got a nose bleed around mile two of the Brooklyn Half Marathon. Instead of quitting to find a bathroom, he stuck a tampon in his nose to stop the bleeding and ran the rest of the race wearing this pained expression. Good thing though, because if he had just quit then we wouldn't have all these beautiful photoshops.

The 2015 Austin Marathon was held this past weekend, and the final stretch for one of the runners was both inspiring and pretty hard to watch.
Kenya’s Hyvon Ngetich was leading the pack for most of the race, but near the finish line her body started to give up.
She ended up crawling the rest of the way (about 50 yards), even refusing to use a wheelchair offered by race officials.
“For the last two kilometers, I don’t remember,” said Ngetich. “Finish line, I have no idea.”
Despite the struggle, she still ended up getting 3rd place, and the race director offered her the same amount of money as the second place finisher.
“You ran the bravest race and crawled the bravest crawl I have ever seen in my life,” he said. “You have earned much honor, and I am going to adjust your prize money, so you get the same prize money you would have gotten if you were second.”
You can watch all 4.5 minutes of her finish below.
A new record has been set by a participant in the New York City Marathon. Jimmy Jenson is the first person with Down syndrome to cross the finish line, the Today Show reports.
The 48-year-old from Los Angeles completed the race along side his close friend, Jennifer Davis. The two met 12 years prior through a program called Best Buddies that connects those with intellectual disabilities with those without.
After completing the marathon in just over eight hours, Jenson stayed at the finish line to encourage runners behind him to not give up and to finish the race.
