After crossing the finish line at the grueling Tram Road Challenge in Palm Springs, Debbie Christensen and Allan Woodruff stuck around to cheer on their fellow competitors. But soon enough, Allen's primary focus was chatting up the pretty blond that caught his eye.
Later, at a pancake breakfast for the winners, Allan approached Debbie and a friend and suavely asked, "Are you sisters? Because you have the same beautiful eyes!" It wasn't true, Debbie says. "But who cares? It worked!"
Three years later, they were together at the finish line of the Tram Road Challenge again, but this time it was for their wedding! The super-fit duo ran the entire race in wedding attire and then said their vows before a waiting minister who pronounced them husband and wife. Now the couple has 35 marathons and 14 years of wedded bliss under their belts, er, race bibs.
