Hearts Melt at Magnolia Meltdown

RIDGELAND, Miss. (WJTV) – While runners were crossing the finish line Saturday at the Magnolia Meltdown in Ridgeland, one lucky runner found himself taking a knee.


Stephen Buccola wasn’t a runner until he started dating Laura Katherine Johnston. They began dating about a year and a half ago. Laura Katherine is an avid runner.

Today the couple has run over 450 miles together, and there are more to come.

Buccola dropped to his knee at the finish line and asked Johnston to marry him.

She said yes!
