As we were walking through Great Falls, Jordan said “I didn’t even like Stephen when we first met!” Let me tell you the story that followed that statement was adorable and wonderful.
Jordan was training for her first marathon, and asked one of her friends to ride their bike next to her while she practiced the 20 mile run. Stephen poked his head in, and asked if he could join in on the run. (Per Jordan) Stephen had never even attempted 16 miles, so Jordan might have been a smidge annoyed. Especially when he showed up the next morning, while Jordan was reminding herself of why she would agree to run a marathon, keeping those reasons running through her mind, Stephen was running right beside her, keeping up pace and making sure that Jordan was doing ok every few miles.
Jordan and Stephen went on another training run a week later, and as Stephen shared more of himself with Jordan, she dubbed him Superman. The 4 years, and 11 marathons, that followed those destiny laced trainings, are a love story that I think Disney would be jealous of.
I cannot wait to be a part of the beginning leg of their next marathon – married life. Thank you both for choosing me 🙂
