Yesterday Yujiro and I played cupid with the Velo Taxi.
A few weeks ago I got an email from an ex-colleague saying that he was tackling the Hokkaido Marathon this year - first full marathon etc etc.
AND - at the Finish Line? Planning to PROPOSE to his longtime girlfriend!
Could we arrange for the Velo Taxi to pick them up after that and take them home?
So.....I bought cheap decorations from Daiso and Donkiote, decorated up a fan with hearts and glitter, decorated the taxi with twinkly hearts tinsel and balloons and here we are!
CONGRATULATIONS to Michiko and Dave!
Great proposal idea Dave - and thankgoodness: a) you finished the race and didn't get carted off on a stretcher and b) Michiko said "Yes".
He even had the ring in his pocket as he ran....4 hours and 45 minutes.
