Ashland residents Nick Cordes and Leigh Daniel run with their two dogs every morning. But lately, the engaged couple has been getting a little more attention.
Cordes, 29, and Daniel, 30, are one of four finalist couples for the "Today" show's "Today throws a wedding." The two appeared on NBC's "Today" on Wednesday in a competition to complete song lyrics.
But it was all worth it for Daniel, a two-time Division I champion at Texas Tech and Cordes, a champion runner at Ashland University. Through fellow track coach Jud Logan, the two became coaches at Ashland and now Cordes coaches the men's team and Daniel coaches the women's team.
