NYPD Officer Proposes at New York City Marathon

An NYPD officer proposed to his partner at the New York City Marathon on Sunday.

The NYPD posted a photo of the proposal on Twitter. The department said the NYPD officer proposed to his partner, who is an auxiliary officer. 

And in case anyone was wondering — "She said yes!" the department tweeted. 

"Auxiliary Officer Nemyzov was happy to finish the #TCSNYCmarathon, but Officer Ramos had something else planned. Congrats!" the tweet read. 

Thousands took part in the marathon on a rainy Sunday as more than two million watched from the sidelines. 

Olympian Shalane Flanagan became the first American woman to win the marathon since 1977. 

"It's indescribable," the 36-year-old Flanagan said. "It's a moment I'm trying to soak up and savor."
