Mother of Eight Breaks World Record for Running a Marathon While Pushing a Triple Stroller

Mother of Eight Breaks World Record for Running a Marathon While Pushing a Triple Stroller

Theresa Marie Pitts brings new meaning to the term “supermom.” The 38-year-old mother of eight from Kalispell, Montana, broke a Guinness World Record earlier this month for running a marathon while pushing a 150-pound stroller containing her three youngest children. Pitts ran the Missoula Marathon on July 15—her first ever 26.2—in 4:25:37, besting the World Record by nearly five minutes. No one had ever before attempted the feat. The Guinness World Record organization set 4:30:00 as the benchmark, a number Pitts kept in mind throughout the race. She kept stride between the 4:00 and 4:30 pace groups while her companions—4-year-old Evan, 2-year-old Anders and 5-month-old Avi—dozed on and off.
