My multisport “race buddy” Suzie Fox was in Florida this past weekend spending time with her sister and her niece and nephew. She raced a half marathon while she was there, and posted this on Facebook:
Her caption: ”We did it! My niece, nephew & I lowered the Guinness World Record
for Female Half Marathon Pushing A Double Stroller from 1:49:23 to 1:47:51.
Pushing 106 lbs total up the causeways was soooooooo HARD!!!!!!!”
When I raced the Lake Johanna 4 Miler last year with both boys, I figured our double stroller and 2 boys weighed about 102-104 lbs. (And the same goes for our Thanksgiving morning 5K with my son and nephew.) And as Suzie noted, it’s work on the hills!
Here are 2 more photos that Suzie’s sister posted before and during the race:
At mile 9 with both kids sleeping. As I’ve noted
many times before, kids are unimpressed with speed. :)
