A Little Motivation

Good Morning Blogland,

Most of the weekend was spent walking or on all fours trying to keep the progression of Baby H happening. Yesterday I recieved a wonderful article from my husband that was in the Chicago Tribune:

Woman gives birth after running Chicago Marathon

CHICAGO — A pregnant suburban Chicago woman felt contractions a few minutes after finishing the Chicago Marathon and gave birth hours later to a baby daughter.

Amber Miller was nearly 39 weeks pregnant when she started the 26.2 mile race on Sunday morning. The DuPage County woman tells The Daily Herald in a telephone interview from her hospital bed that her doctor allowed her to run half the race and walk half the race.

Miller says she felt contractions after finishing at 6 hours and 25 minutes. When the contractions became regular she stopped to get a sandwich and then went to the hospital. Her baby girl June was born at 10:29 p.m. weighing 7 pounds, 13 ounces.
Miller says she’s happy but calls Sunday “the longest day of my life.”

Needless to say I am not going to be walking 26.2 miles everyday. My three miles suites me just fine!!!!

Thansk for the motivation though Joey!
