For Ariana Luterman, the big-hearted Dallas Marathon teen hero, sudden celebrity has included marriage proposals, Today Show recognition.

Shortly before noon, 17-year-old Ariana Luterman answered her cellphone and conducted a short interview with The Dallas Morning News while sitting in her AP Statistics class at Greenhill School.

That was just one of many indicators that it was anything but a normal Monday for Luterman. This is what happens when a local-teen-does-good story becomes national news, seizing the attention of the Today show, among other national TV programs.
