California woman runs under 6-minute mile at 9 months pregnant

A California woman is going viral on the internet for her speed after running a mile in under 6 minutes while also 9-months pregnant.

Doctors cleared Makenna Myler, 28, to run five to six times a week during pregancy at the Valor Track Club in Orange County.

Myler’s husband Mike put $100 dollars on her not being able a mile in under 8 minutes and decided to take it a couple of steps further just one week before her due date.

Myler ended up running a 5:25 mile, blowing away her goal. The average time 10 minutes and 40 seconds is how long it takes the average female runner to run a mile.

“I think pregnancy is a beautiful thing and it’s not an injury or a sickness, that you’re still really capable,” Myler said.

Out $100, her husband still couldn’t help but to share the accomplishment.

“Someone check the Guinness stats. My wife is an absolute champion,” Mike Myler captioned on an Instagram post.
