How did you meet?
Chad was a member at the gym I worked at. I was actually his mom’s personal trainer. One of my co-workers (who had known him since he was 5) pointed him out to me one day. She said we had a lot in common, and thought we should meet. It took me 6 months to get him to finally agree to go out on a date with me. Our first date was Hansinger Mudfest, a running/mountain biking/obstacle course race. We took second place, and haven’t stopped racing since.
We were headed down to Snowshoe Mountain, WV for a downhill mountain bike race, one of Chad’s favorite places to ride. It was my first time down there, and I couldn’t figure out why he was so excited for me to make the trip with him finally. He took me up to the village at the top of the mountain to show me around, and we went out on a hike to a scenic outlook overlooking the mountains. I realized why he had been so excited when he dropped down on one knee and asked me to marry him.
