Triple stroller halfmarathon record broken in Montana
People in Missoula, Mont., were astonished last year when Theresa Marie Pitts set the first Guinness world record for a woman running the half-marathon while pushing three kids in a stroller, but that record was broken – first by Ashlee Eskelsen in Montgomery, Ala., this past March (her record is 1:47), and most recently on July 15, again at the Missoula Half-Marathon by Cynthia Arnold of Polson, Mont., Arnold ran a blazing 1:29. Her record has yet to be verified by the Guinness organization.
“I feel really good,” Arnold said two days after her record-breaking run. “I can’t be as fast with the stroller, so I’m not as beat-up as I might be without it.” The 34-year-old mother of three is recognized as an accomplished runner in the area, having won the Governor’s Cup half-marathon in Helena, Mont., in 2016.
The stroller is a BeBeLove triple jogging stroller. Fun fact: a fully-occupied triple stroller weighs around 150 pounds or 68 kilograms.
