Saw this on the front page of ESPN--not sure whether to be more impressed with the fact that she finished or disappointed that she even considered doing it. Amazing story regardless.
Because it wasn't the day before the due date - the baby came quite early.
However, run/walking a Marathon a day before giving birth sounds a bit extreme and unnecessary to me. Looking at the time, over 6 hours, you can walk, therefore it probably is ok.
Still I have to ask: why?
7 1/2 hours in labor.

I wonder how many hours she was in labor. That would be a pretty epic double.
Her PR is 3:25.
She run in 6 h 25 min ... Not very impressive ...
I'll start by saying I know next to little about pregnancy. While I'm all for people remaining active during pregnancy, does anyone else think this is just a crazy story?

The article said she ran the first half and walked the second. She probably started walking because the running induced labor.
Well, the baby clearly wanted to get the hell out of there!
one article said her doctor told her to maintain a talking conversation pace. The more i think about that - how bad could that be?
