On Aug. 1 Becca Pizzi, the first woman to complete the World Marathon Challenge, awed us with her athletic endurance, inspiring commitment to a goal and entertaining speaking ability. Pizzi finished 7 marathons on 7 continents in 7 days in 2016, then did it again in 2018!  A Belmont native, Pizzi started running at age 5 and dedicated many hours of her life to ultimately achieve this world record. She also managed to draw a record crowd of attendees at the Rotary meeting! See her story on You Tube and Wikipedia. You will be impressed!.  She quotes Tom Brady when asked how she kept going, "I did not come this far to come this far."  Becca posed for photos and signed autographs. Here she is with Sheila Watts:
