Highest peaks and marathons on the seven continents

I have been in contact with Jeanne Stawiecki for the last year or so. She has just reached the summit of Mt. Everest. With this accomplishment, she became the first woman in the world to summit the highest peak and complete marathons on each of the seven continents.

I have staggered to an altitude of 5,000 ft below the height of Everest. Believe me it is hard. The thought of doing this and the other highest peaks plus running seven marathons is beyond my comprehension. I am in awe of her achievement. Sorry, nearly forgot. Jeanne is 56 years old. Dick Stroud.
