Couple's Turkey Day 5K finishes with a start

Posted: Updated:

Love was in the air at the Old National Turkey Day 5K in Downtown Evansville on Thanksgiving.

Long time couple Tyler Hartman and Chelsea Riess ran the Turkey Day 5K together. 

Our cameras caught a surprise marriage proposal on camera at the finish line.

When they got to the finish, family and friends were at the finish line holding signs saying "Will you marry me?"

Tyler popped the question just moments later.

She said yes!

The couple has been dating five years and say Thanksgiving now has an extra special meaning to them.

"Well there's not anyone more than I'm thankful for than him, so it's perfect," Chelsea said.
