“Running is in my DNA. My Dad is a runner and inspired me to start running when I was 6 years old. I ran my first race when I was 7. I haven’t stopped since then — competing through college and running 41 marathons, including 15 Boston Marathons, qualifying for all of them and marathons in 26 USA states. I love running and share my passion with others, volunteering as a coach, coaching with Team In Training and Boston Fit. I’m a pace setter and inspirational speaker. Running permeates every aspect of my life – I’m a Mom… my daughter is 7 and ran her first race in 2014. I’m a sister… my twin sisters are also accomplished runners. I’m a Bostonian… I have run 15 Boston marathons and won’t ever stop. I’m a friend… I have built lifelong friendship over miles of training. I’m a business owner… I own a daycare (because if I can run a marathon, I can do anything!!) I manage an ice cream shop as well. I’m every runner… a real person that faces the challenges of everyday life, while making time for my sport.
When I learned about the World Marathon Challenge, I immediately wanted to compete in this event in 2016. This event is 7 marathons, 7 days, 7 continents. The physical and mental demands of this race are an awesome test of endurance. I set out to be the first American woman to complete the challenge and attempt to break the women’s record time of 40:22:25 and with the support of my friends and family, my dream came true in January 2016.”
Becca Pizzi (USA) set two new world records (1) fastest average marathon time (female) for 7 marathons on 7 continents in 7 days at 3:55:11 hrs (2) shortest timeframe for a female to complete marathons on all 7 continents at 6 Days 18 Hours 38 minutes.
