Two judges from the Pinellas-Pasco Circuit are about to embark on some endurance sports.
Judge Cynthia Newton, who handles felony criminal trials, is scheduled to compete Sunday in a "half Ironman" competition in Haines City and Lake Eva. That's a 1.2-mile swim, a 56-mile bicycle ride and a 13.1-mile run. She also is planning to participate in a full Ironman -- double those distances -- this summer in Idaho.
Meanwhile, Judge Dee Anna Farnell, who presides over Drug Court, is scheduled to compete in her 17th Boston Marathon on April 21.
