Chris Jones proposed to his girlfriend, Katie Parker, in the middle of the London Marathon on Sunday.
At Sunday's London Marathon, Chris Jones ran all 26.2 miles while wearing a Tyrannosaurus Rex costume.
Jones said he ran the marathon in a dinosaur costume to raise money for the children's hospital that treated his cousin who was infected with a rare and deadly flesh-eating virus.But halfway through, he zipped off his dinosaur costume and proposed to his girlfriend, Katie Parker." I've been planning for about a year now," Jones told INSIDER. "She was surprised. She had no idea." #trex#jurassicworld#inflatablecostume#inflatable#rubies#rubiescostumeco#dinosaur#wedding#proposal#londonmarathon
“you have to forget your last marathon before you try another.” - frank shorter
took some time on my flight back from london to put down my thoughts on my race at the #londonmarathon . i found that to be a cathartic exercise after berlin and nyc last fall. you can find my race report over at @citiusmag or hit the link in my bio.

Thanks so much everyone for all your messages of encouragement! My first experience of the #LondonMarathon was a truly magical one and the support from the crowd was simply amazing! There is still a chance to donate to my chosen charity @wellchild too! #Linkinbio
They threw me a celebratory surprise meal! 😲
Thought I was going out for tea tonight with just my mum... turned up and all my favourite people were sat there 😍
I feel so lucky so have such supportive friends and family. I’ve been a nightmare to be around these last few weeks and now the poor things have to listen to me talk more about running as I buzz off the marathon for the next few weeks... months... maybe even years?! 🏃🏻♀️
Thank you guys... you’re literally the best a girl could wish for 💗

Dores musculares e uma febre tomam conta do meu corpo hoje. Mas graças a Deus são apenas dores por ter feito bastante esforço, não são dores de machucado, e a febre sempre sinto depois de uma prova forte. (Não sei exatamente pq, vou até me informar melhor sobre isso). Mesmo assim, estou feliz de ter completado a prova com sucesso, confesso que estava bem preocupado e um pouco inseguro, mas faltando 5 minutos para iniciar a prova me concentrei e só visualizava a linha de chegada. No começo o corpo até pede pra ir mais rápido, mas uma maratona é uma prova estratégica, se gastar no começo, vai faltar no final e desta vez soube balancear melhor o ritmo. Muita gente que me ultrapassou e perdi de vista perdeu a resistência mais para frente. É normal, já fiz muito isso, mas o me ensinou a dosar o ritmo. Lembro também do amigo me ajudando a controlar o ritmo na Disney, ele é Maratonista experiente e vimos a mesma situação, muita gente quebrando por ter largado forte. Não é só falta de experiência que te faz fazer isso, mas muita confiança também, aqui em Londres a elite teve este problema e foi quebradeira geral. Mas tem fatores externos que impactam, temperatura por exemplo. O tempo que cada um termina uma prova não importa, eu por exemplo só uso meus tempos como referência pra tentar melhorar pra mim, pra me motivar a treinar mais, mas isso não quer dizer que tenham provas que levem mais tempo, Boston por exemplo certeza que eu levaria mais tempo pra concluir, prova super difícil. Fiz questão de ler todas as mensagens de apoio que recebi por aqui, aos poucos respondo a todos.
Последний на сегодня финиш классического марафона, ровно год назад. Красиво пробежали с абсолютно одинаковым временем, плечом к плечу от старта до финиша. Осталась какая-то недосказанность #londonmarathon

I’m still fundraising, check the link in my bio!
WellChild is the national UK children's charity making it possible for children and young people with exceptional health needs to be cared for at home instead of hospital, wherever possible.
On Sunday evg, walking home along the Embankment with my friend Jane B, the barricades for the #LondonMarathon were being dismantled and 1000s of discarded water bottles swept from the streets. But there were still runners, or walkers by this point, focused on finishing the last couple of miles. And if you don’t know London it’s easy to get lost and not know the way to the finish, when you’re at a low ebb and struggling mentally and physically. The first we met was Amy, running in memory of her Mum and raising money for sarcoma cancer. So we walked and then ran the last bit to the Mall with Amy, then Emma, a nurse raising money for cancer research - the London Marathon is the world’s largest fundraising event. They did it, raising thousands for charity.... finally on our way back after crossing St James Park, as a black swan glided under the bridge in the pink sunset, we met gutsy Shirl from Oz, and talked about how she’d seen her grandfather’s old home along the way. She made it to the finish, although the banners had been taken down and the photographers packing up, and got her medal too. So vicariously we crossed the finish line 3 times....my kind friend Jane B lives along the route of the marathon, and does this every year, keeping runners talking so they continue to put one foot in front of the other til the finish. Grateful to know Jane, and a joy to have met these 3 women whose sheer grit got them through #london#spiritoflondon#londonmarathon#marathonrunning#sheergrit#friendship#dusk#stjamesparklondon#finishers
That's @londonmarathon done in a knee-creaking 4h 46secs. So glad it's over - and I can't wait to do it again!
We've raised over £2,300 for disability charity #PhabKids so far, and we wanted to say a massive thank you to everyone who's donated so far! There's still time to add to that total - link in bio!
