Picco & Appleby Run Disney Half

Two members of the Mariners Athletics Running Club, Cindy Picco and Renee Appleby, ran the Walt Disney World Half Marathon in Orlando Florida last weekend in a field of 23,000.

According to Appleby, “The race was awesome ... unlike anything I had ever experienced before! Our chip time was 3:18 and it was crazy hot and humid, but that really didn't become a problem until the sun came up". The race started in the dark at 5:50am!

Running for only 2 years, this was the second half-marathon for Picco and Appleby in 5 months, having completed the Nautilus Half Marathon last September.
