She said yes.
Claire Short, a 16-year-old sophomore at Findlay High School in Ohio, met 17-year-old Joran Fuller because they are both on the school’s cross country team.
Fuller told BuzzFeed News he and Short first became friends because Short was “so much faster than the girls that she ran with the guys instead.”
The two have been dating for a few weeks now, and on Saturday, Fuller asked Short to prom through the running app Strava.
Short told BuzzFeed News that Fuller had mentioned he was working on a way to ask her to prom but had also said it was gonna take a while to plan out so she had no idea what to expect.
“He actually stopped by that day to bring me some food because I wasn’t feeling well, and he told me to check Strava and I saw it,” Short said, adding that she knew right away that the route Fuller had run spelt out “Prom?”
Fuller said it took him some time to find an area with enough square blocks to plan out block-shaped letters because they live in a small town.
He got out of school early the day before and drove downtown to do the run before rushing to rehearsals for the school musical. The run took him around 45 minutes to complete, he said.
