The weaker sex? I don't think so....!


Tuesday, October 11, 2011

Ok the Chicago Marathon was this past weekend. While I have never desired to run a marathon, I am so inspired by a story I read today.

A woman runs the Chicago marathon, pregnant! She finishes the race, ahead of her husband ( she said it was because he had not trained). When she finished she noted that she was having contractions (she had them while running and kept going anyway since she had experienced them before during training).

She had a sandwich, noted the contractions were five minutes apart, went to the hospital and had her baby!
