Public proposal surprises future bride in a good way


At the 2013 Foot Lake 4 in Willmar, Ryan Miller wasn't running for a first-place finish, or even for a personal best. He was running toward something much better: his future wife.

Miller proposed to his girlfriend of over a year, Calli Halgren, at the Foot Lake 4 finish line Saturday. He had been looking for "the perfect spot" to propose, and decided that she would never see it coming after the race, especially in such a public setting.
