Over one thousand people gathered at The House of Blues in Boston on November 14th to recognize the greatest achievements of Boston sports stars in 2016. It was a terrific event headlined by David “Big Papi” Ortiz taking home several honors for his fantastic swan song season.
While could not dispute the honoring of the Boston megastar, there was another award winner who in my humble opinion should have been crowned “Star of Stars”.
Away from the mega bucks glamour & over the top media coverage, Ms. Becca Pizzi achieved what seems to be the ultimate athletic challenge ever undertaken. This young lady ran SEVEN marathons in SEVEN days on SEVEN Continents! Yes, you read it correctly!
Hopefully BIG can bring Ms. Pizzi to China and provide inspiration to our BN Vocational School Running Club.
