The engagement may have been short, but the road to the altar for two trading industry pros was a long and arduous one–140.6 miles to be exact.

Bryan Harkins of Direct Edge and Melissa Moo of Weeden & Co. tied the knot at the finish line after completing an all-day Ironman triathlon on July 25 in Lake Placid, N.Y.
