A Guiness World Record ... again !

On Saturday March 2, 2013, Theresa Dugwell enhanced the current Guiness Record for the longest distance run by a woman on a treadmill in 12 hours. She ran a total of 60.15 miles, exceeding her previous record of 58.05 miles

The event took place at the North York Y at Bayview and Sheppard, Toronto, Canada, starting at 2 AM for 12 hours. The Y supported this effort and there were many other athletes exercising at the same time providing additional support during Theresa's attempt.

In addition to Theresa, Y member Faith completed 12 hours on an elliptical trainer, and husband and wife team Doug and Cecilia pedalled on stationary bikes for 12 hours as well, Quite the event !

At the completion of Theresa's run, Michael, an adjudicator from Guiness World Records, presented Theresa with a certificate of recognition of her accomplishment. This made her Guiness record official!!

Theresa is the co-author of the book 'Power Source For Women'. She sets an example of what is possible and serves as a role model for all of us.

Another Milestone

Pat M. has run around the world ... literally! Pat began keeping track in the early 1980's of all of her distances that she ran, not missing a single entry in 30 years. The accounting entries alone are worthy of praise. At the end of 2012, Pat reached the distance of 24,901 miles (40,075 KM) and in doing so,has run around the world, at its widest point (it was too cold to do the Poles so she chose the equatorial route).

Congratulations Pat!
