BELMONT, MA — Becca Pizzi is a woman on a mission. The 35-year-old from Massachusetts is attempting to become the first American woman to complete the 2016 World Marathon Challenge. Just in case you were wondering, it’s 7 marathons on 7 continents in 7 days!
Along with 15 other participants, Becca will start her marathon journey this Saturday in Antartica.
She’ll continue to Chile where she’ll run another marathon, then fly to Miami, Spain, Marrakech, Morocco, Dubai and finally… Sidney, Australia.
Most of the miles will be up in the air, but she’ll put almost 183 miles on her odometer. It’s probably no big deal for Becca Pizzi who was quoted saying she’s been running since she was six years old. Easy Pizzi.
