35 year old Cynthia Arnold from Montana has achieved an unbelievable feat after she completed a 3:11 marathon. What is unbelievable about the run is that she Cynthia ran the whole marathon whilst pushing a 185 pound weight. She was pushing a triple person stroller with her three children which included a six year old, a four year old and one year old.

She maintained sub-7:20 pace for 26.2 mile. The feat saw her breaking the Guinness World record for the fastest full marathon while pushing three kids.

Talking to Runner’s world, Cynthia said that the kids enjoy the run as much as  she does,

“We live in rural Montana and see lots of wildlife on the bike path right out my door,” Arnold was quoted saying. “I keep a pretty consistent routine and see some regular commuters each day, and the kids like saying hello to the cyclists.”

When it came to deciding on a race, the Missoula Marathon seemed to be a perfect fit. “The atmosphere is perfect for the family, it is the perfect combination of beautiful country scenery and urban crowds in downtown Missoula,” she said.

This wasn’t the first time that the 35-year-old mother took triple stroller across a race finish line. Last year, she broke the Guinness World Record for the fastest-half marathon while pushing a three-person stroller at the Missoula Half Marathon in Missoula, Montana.

This year, she returned to the event to go for an even larger goal. To set the Guinness World Record for the fastest full marathon while pushing three kids at the Missoula Marathon.

She said that the crowd, who might be familiar with her after the half run last year, were extremely supportive of her.

“The crowd was amazingly supportive,” she said. “I was moved by how many people were cheering for me and knew what my goal was on race day. One woman called out ‘I’ve been reading about you all year. Go mom!’”
