FARGO -- Among the thousands of runners lining up on the Main Avenue bridge Saturday was a bride.

Not a bride-to-be. A bride.

KayCee Johnson of Fargo ran the Fargo Marathon 10K the day of her wedding, wearing her mother’s wedding veil.

“I’m not wearing it in the wedding, so I decided to wear it out here,” she said.

Johnson and her fiancé, Ryan Judd, planned a 4 p.m. wedding at The Avalon in downtown Fargo in front of 200 guests.

She said pulling off the feat required “a lot of careful planning” and help from friends and family.
