Amber Miller felt contractions just minutes after crossing the finish line at the Chicago Marathon. A few hours later, the Chicago woman -- who slogged her way through 26.2 miles while nearly 39 weeks pregnant -- delivered a healthy baby girl, AP reported.
She completed it with a half-run half-walk approach, drinking lots of fluids and eating a lot along the way, and finished in 6:25:50.
It was not Miller's first marathon while pregnant.
In May, the she ran the Wisconsin Marathon in 4:23:07 while 17 weeks pregnant with her daughter. In 2009, she ran the Indianapolis Marathon in 4:30:27 while she was 18 weeks pregnant with her son Caleb. （点击chron.com网站查看原文）
