But Reinhart and Jockel finally reached a compromise, tying the knot at an 8-mile mark of Sunday’s Chicago Marathon in the Boystown neighborhood.

 

The bride wore a white running outfit and held flowers while Jockel wore a tuxedo T-shirt. They wedded under a garden arch decorated with race medals.

 

The ceremony took less than four minutes, and was all captured by the news crew who had come to video the marathon.
