An Illinois women ran the Chicago marathon while she was nearly 39 weeks pregnant on Sunday, just hours before giving birth to a healthy baby girl.
Amber Miller, 27, delivered her 7-pound, 13-ounce baby girl, June Audra Miller, approximately 7 hours after finishing the 26.2 mile race, reported the Chicago Sun-Times.
Miller ran all throughout her pregnancy without any implications, but played it safe on Sunday by walking and running in two-mile intervals, reported the Chicago Sun-Times. She finished in 6 hours and 25 minutes.
Miller has participated in eight marathons and this is the third time she has been pregnant, reported the Washington Post.
Medical experts don't advise women to start marathon training while pregnant, but they say that if a woman was a healthy runner before she got pregnant that running during pregnancy is fine, reported the Washington Post.
Miller is looking forward to returning home with her new daughter on Tuesday, reported the Chicago Sun-Times.
