KENT — At the awards ceremony for the 42nd annual Kent Pumpkin Run on Sunday, Oct. 28, Matt Monroe took the opportunity to propose to his love, Kendall Lyons. She said, “Yes!” Not even her second-place finish among the women racers could match that moment. The cheers for them were the most excited of the day. It’ll be hard to beat that  in Pumpkin Run no. 43 … but who knows?
