A woman from Belmont is about a week away from trying to make history in the world marathon challenge.

Becca Pizzi is trying to become the first American woman to run seven marathons on seven continents, in one week.

It all starts a week from tomorrow in Antarctica.

Pizzi signed autographs in her hometown Thursday night, and says she loves that some people view her as a role model.
