LDS Mom Breaks World Record for Half-Marathon with Triple Stroller, Credits Prayer and Angels

After logging over 1,000 miles running with their family's double stroller, Ashlee Eskelsen just upgraded to a triple stroller, and she's already breaking records.

Tennessee mom Ashlee Eskelsen ran the Boston Marathon 14 weeks pregnant last year. This year, she wanted a new challenge.

Eskelsen, a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, set a world record on Saturday for finishing a half-marathon pushing a triple stroller with her three sons — her youngest just 4 and a half months old.

“Those last few miles, they were hard,” Eskelsen told alabamanews.net. “I had to stay strong mentally, and my motto is just for moms everywhere and I definitely was praying, like I said out there. So, I was hoping some angels would help me push it because no one else was allowed to touch the stroller.”
