The couple eventually thought of a long-run race together as they planned their wedding after engagement. According to SportsKeeda, they were planning to tie the knot by 2018.

Burrell revealed their dream wedding and where it might end up being. They had talked about it and thought of a destination wedding, maybe in Vieques, Puerto Rico.

What made the destination perfect and special for the couple? Well, it was where the pair traveled together for the first time ever.

“So it’s kind of a special spot for us,” Burrell told Entertainment Tonight. Grieveson had moved to New York from Chicago to be with Burell in September 2012.

Shockingly, the pair couldn’t take their relationship after the engagement. Grieveson and Burrell ultimately split up, and their fantasized nuptials never materialized.
