It seems with every major marathon comes an amusing human interest story or two. In last spring's L.A. marathon, we saw a man run a 2:36 after consuming nothing but McDonald's over the previous 30 days, and a 400+lbs man take over nine hours to finish.
File this one under: you can't make this stuff up.
Amber Miller completed yesterday's Chicago Marathon in 6:25, then gave birth seven hours later. She even beat her husband who joined her out of solidarity at the last moment after no training whatsoever.
Foolish? Inspirational? Badass? I'm torn on this one. On the one hand, I can't help but wonder if she needlessly risked her baby's safety. On the other hand, according to the article, her doctor signed off on it, and I've always said that a person knows his/her body better than anyone else.
What do you think?
