Marathon Runner Crosses Finish Line, Delivers Baby
Miller answers media questions with her husband, 19-month-old son, and newborn daughter.
The Chicago Marathon had a remarkable finish for runner Amber Miller. Shortly after crossing the finish line this past Sunday, Miller says she felt a little "something," which, 7 hours later, turned into her daughter, June Audra.
Miller was 38 weeks and 5 days pregnant on marathon day, and she had been given clearance by her doctor to run two miles and then walk two miles throughout the race, the suburban Chicago newspaper The Daily Herald reports. She had run a marathon earlier in her pregnancy, but she had not planned to finish this one.
"I was having a conversation with my parents Saturday night and told them I had no plans of actually finishing. I have run marathons, while pregnant, but not at 38 weeks," Miller said. "I was planning on maybe running half and skipping to the end and walking across the finish line."
