Tennessee runner Barbara Tatge, 54, said her daughters wanted to spice up her race, so they dared her to flip the tradition of runners stopping to kiss Wellesley girls along the marathon route and find a handsome man to kiss.
She obliged and told the Metro West Daily News that after passing the girls in Wellesley, she ran a bit more and then “spotted a tall, good looking man.”
Tatge said she told her mystery man about the dare and that she needed proof if they completed the task. They decided to go for it, and the person the mystery man was watching the race with took a photo of the pair locking lips.
"When this story aired on the news, we were pretty surprised," the man's wife said, according to The Associated Press. "For me, I'm not mad. Believe me, our friends have gotten a lot of mileage out of this story, and I have thoroughly enjoyed watching them give my husband grief!"
Tatge reportedly responded Monday, thanking the wife for her good humor.
"She's a great sport, and he's fortunate to be married to someone like her," Tatge said.
