MARY REICHARD, HOST: A man in California recently made a wager with his wife.
Mike Myler bet his bride Makenna $100 dollars that she couldn’t run a mile in less than 8 minutes.
And he lost that bet. Big time.
She ran it in 5 minutes and 25 seconds.
Mike welcomed a breathless Makenna at the finish line.
MYLER: I owe you a hundred dollars. Good job!
Her 5-and-a-half-minute one-mile time was impressive. According to Runner’s World, the average female runner completes a mile in 10 minutes and 40 seconds.
But her feat was impressive for another reason: 28-year-old Makenna was 9 months pregnant!
She cleared it with her doctor before running.
Mike later wrote, “Someone check the Guinness stats. My wife is an absolute champion!”
Makenna gave birth on Tuesday to a healthy baby girl!
It’s The World and Everything in It.
