Cynthia Arnold Broke Guinness Record for Fastest Marathon While Pushing Her Children in a Three-Person Stroller
Cynthia Arnold made history once again as she unofficially breaks the Guinness World Record, inspiring moms to be healthy and fit like her.
There’s no stopping Cynthia Arnold from breaking yet another record. The mom-of-three proved that she was unstoppable as she made it to the finish line at the 26.2 miles marathon, while pushing a triple stroller with her kid's ages six, four, and one.
The full marathon took her a total of four hours and six minutes to complete, setting the record, unofficially. She pushed about 185 lbs, the weight of her kids combined, while carrying her own weight at 130 lbs, according to Runner’s World.
“We live in rural Montana and see lots of wildfire on the bike path right out my door, she said. “I keep a pretty consistent routine and see some regular commuters each day, and the kids like saying hello to cyclists.”
Arnold started training for the run last winter, bringing her kids sometimes. She’s thinking about joining a solo marathon this fall, but her attachment to the stroller and her kids is somewhat inseparable.
“I was laughing with my husband about throwing the stroller into a ditch or off a cliff, you know, say goodbye to that heavy old thing,” she said. “But I would never really do that. I tear up when I think any day could be the last day my oldest daughter goes for a run in the stroller. She can ride her bike while I run now.”
