Toronto couple celebrate finishing marathon by getting married

A man and woman who recently ran the Toronto Marathon decide to commemorate the feat in a somewhat unusual way: by getting married.

According to the Toronto Star, while thousands of their fellow marathoners were cooling down and refueling with lots of liquids upon finishing the race, Jessica McGann and Rodney Merchant were showering up and heading for the wedding chapel.

The paper reports that the couple arrived at the wedding right on time, as the ceremony was scheduled to begin at 2 p.m.

The Star reports that the newlyweds did not receive traditional wedding gifts from those in attendance. Instead, Merchant requested that people donate to the Canadian Cancer Society in lieu of gifts in honor of his mother, Yvonne, who died of cancer four years ago.

A storage unit facility may want to be the newlyweds' next destination to run to, especially if they're planning on buying a home or renting an apartment. If they lived in separate dwelling places prior to marrying, one or both of them may want to store some of their belongings there.
