Three months after that meeting, Running saw that the Vikings were selling bricks to fans surrounding U.S. Bank Stadium, which would open in 2016.
Despite only knowing Momany for a short time, he was ready to make the purchase.
On the brick was inscribed: "Jane, will you marry me? Love, Nick."
"I knew I wanted to spend the rest of my life with her the moment I met her," Running said.
On Saturday, ahead of the Vikings' game against the Colts, Running and Momany, who now live in Denver, flew to Minnesota and took a trip to the stadium. A friend had come ahead of time and cleared the space where the brick was, pulling back the snow in the shape of a heart.
Momany looked down and Running had the ring ready. She said yes.
"It was the best $170 I ever spent," Running said.
