He didn't run the race, and had the proposal perfectly planned -- and who better to help than WKTV?

UTICA, N.Y. -- In what seemed to be just another post-race interview this Boilermaker Sunday -- actually turned out to be a surprise marriage proposal. 

WKTV's Jason Powles was in on the surprise, of course. He posed it as just another interview, but really as he was staging an interview with 13-time Boilermaker runner Amanda Horth, her now-fiance, Paul Gallipeau, was waiting to pop the question. 

Gallipeau didn't run the race, and had the proposal perfectly planned -- and who better to help than WKTV?

She said, yes! Congratulations to the happy couple, who now have more to celebrate than just another Boilermaker finish for Horth. 

Horth is from the Utica area, and Gallipeau hails from Rochester.
