Good morning. I'm Renee Montagne.

Some say a long and happy marriage is a marathon. For a Texas couple, their wedding was too. David Guzman and Amanda Kirschner tied the knot 23 miles into the Austin Marathon on Sunday. Not quite traditional. Although according to the Austin American Statesman, the bride did wear a white running skirt and a veil over her ponytail. Her groom donned a tuxedo print t-shirt. The judge married them with the words, may they run together forever.
