Geany differs between compiling and building and program. Compiling the
program usually just translates the C code into a binary object file
(*.o file), building the C code usually generates a fully executable

You can see that in the build menu, where you have different options:

    Compile (F8)
    Build (F9)
    Execute (F5)

(Not sure if my keybindings are the default)

So if you want to generate an executable and then run it you would
choose Build and after that Execute or Press F9 and then F5.

Hope this helps you so far,
