Very few people can run 14 miles on the first date, and that’s how you know Elizabeth and Jeremiah were meant to be from the start. So, when Jeremiah decided to pop the question with a dazzling engagement ring from I W Marks Jewelers, it was only natural that it was after a 10-mile run.  “When I turned to look at him, he was down on one knee!
