At an FCC lunch in early April he also spoke about, his inspiration for getting into shape for the marathon challenge, the high and low moments of the competition, the camaraderie among the runners, as well as the story the last race, where it was a fight to the finish to win.

Gething, who also set two new world records in the challenge, has competed in many marathons including the famed Boston Marathon, Ironman triathlons (up to world championship level) and multi-day European bicycle stage-races.
