I had the pleasure of photographing Becca Pizzi as she finished her 17th Boston Marathon last weekend. Her 16th and 17th were virtual….as the official marathon date back on Patriots Day in April was canceled. Even more impressive than running 17 Boston Marathons (hard to beat, right?!) is the fact that Becca has also completed the World Marathon Challenge….twice.
The World Marathon Challenge consists of running 7 marathons, on 7 continents, in just 7 days. Becca started her world marathon in Antarctica and finished in Australia. You can learn more about Becca’s amazing “feat on feet”…..and order her book, with of course, the very same name HERE. My two copies of “Becca’s Feat on Feet” arrived on Thursday and I was so excited to share her story with my students. Later in the day I overheard them playing “marathon runner” on the playground. Talk about inspirational. Thanks, Becca!
