Teens are always searching for the best way to ask someone to prom. This young man decided to get creative by asking his high school sweetheart the big question with the help of a running app called Strava.
Joran Fuller, 17, attends Findlay High School in Ohio and like most of the other students he wanted to wow his potential prom date, girlfriend Claire Short, 16. Instead of just bringing flowers and candy to school to ask her the big question, Fuller ran 5.5 miles along a route that spelled out “Prom?”
After he finished his run, he brought Short some beautiful roses and pulled out the app to show her his running route. Of course when she looked at the blue lines showcasing every direction Fuller jogged, she knew what her boyfriend was asking and immediately said yes.
The young teen was so impressed with her boyfriend’s tech savvy “promposal” that after she gave her answer, she shared it with her family and then tweeted it out to the social media world.

Robin Short, Claire’s mother, said, “It’s very insane in my mind. I’m happy for her.”
“It was a really sweet thing that he did.”
Tony Fuller, Joran’s father said, “It certainly has been pretty surprising.”
“He likes to do little things like this and he’s never really looking for a big reaction. It is kind of cool that he’s getting a little recognition for being a gentleman and being kind. That certainly makes me proud as a father.”
When it comes to where Fuller got the cute idea, he explained that,”I’d seen on Strava some different Strava art things where in big cities cyclists would map out these big elaborate designs.”

“That inspired me a little bit but I’d never seen somebody do words.”
It definitely worked out and since it was first posted earlier this week, the picture has been shared 16,000 times.
