CHICAGO: Amber Miller could be forgiven for taking a long rest after completing the Chicago Marathon on Sunday, but rather than resting her aching limbs, the 27-year-old spent the evening giving birth to her second child.
Miller was 39 weeks pregnant when she started the 42.195km race and went into labour soon after finishing, a spokeswoman at Central DuPage Hospital said yesterday.
And she beat her husband, Joe.
Miller was the 34 339th finisher, while Joe came in at 34 997.
The Chicago native had completed marathons during her previous pregnancy, but told reporters at the hospital that she had not expected to finish this year’s race.
