As told by Kristi:
Many, many months ahead of time, Adam and I planned a trip to Seattle and Vancouver for June 2012. We had to switch the dates of the trip because it interfered with LadyCat auditions (I’m a LadyCat for the Charlotte Bobcats as well as an investment advisor). We arrived in Seattle on a Friday afternoon, and on Saturday morning, Adam ran a half-marathon. I met him at the finish line and he tried to sneak me into the runners’ area to take a professional photo with him, but security wouldn’t allow it. We walked over to a fountain with the Space Needle behind it, and Adam asked a passerby to take a picture of us. He apparently told him to keep snapping photos because he was about to propose. We took a normal photo, and then Adam got down on one knee! Neither of us can remember anything that he said, except ew know at the end he said, “Marry me?” Of course, I said yes and started jumping up and down as people passing by clapped and cheered. Adam told me he had the ring with him for the entire half-marathon, and that he was scared he would lose it. Good thing he didn’t!
Kristi and Adam will be married in September 2013
