At least the wife has a sense of humour.
Before running her first marathon last month, Barbara Tatge, a 55-year-old single mom from Tennessee, learned of a local custom: female race spectators would kiss Boston Marathon participants as they made their way through Wellesley, Massachusetts.
Tatge’s daughter, Paige, dared her to reverse the tradition and kiss a male spectator.
And she did.
“Before I could even think about what I was doing, my feet were making my way towards this tall, good-looking man,” Tatge told TODAY.com last week. "He was a great sport. There was no discussion about whether it would be a kiss on the lips or the cheek. It just happened to be a kiss on the lips.”
And then she continued the race, not knowing the identity of the man she just kissed.
Shortly after the race, Tatge asked for help over social media in tracking down the man who made her day.
She got a response — from his wife.
Fortunately, she wasn’t upset about the kiss, or the headlines it generated.
