Honeymoon Half Marathon
Following their wedding just before Christmas Cy and Mel Gearing set off for a honeymoon in New York in January. The couple are active members of BRJ Run and Tri Club. As well as seeing the sights of the Big Apple they raced around Central Park in the New York Runners Club Fred Lebow Half Marathon. With over 5,000 runners the four lap circuit became quite congested. This made keeping pace difficult and both Mel and Cy ran further than the 13.1 miles of the course. They described the support on the local crowds as fantastic. Cy finished in 33rd place in 1 hour 22 minutes 56 seconds. Mel was pleased to keep to her planed pace and came in just over two hours (2.04.49).
