A 46-year-old woman in her eight month of pregnancy took part in a marathon recently held in Boston (the USA). She covered 42 km within seven hours.
New York resident April Noan, who is to become 47 in several weeks, said her doctors and organizers of the marathon allowed her to participate in the heat.
What is more interesting, the woman does not understand, why people make so much fuss about her deed. Her opinion is, pregnancy is not a disease.
Women in past centuries treated pregnancy especially seriously only when it came to its end.

TODAY'S BOOK SUGGESTION
Making Babies the Hard Way: Living with Infertility and Treatment
by Caroline Gallup
-- A frank account of one couple's discovery that they cannot have children of their own, and their ensuing struggle through four years of fertility treatment.
One in six couples worldwide seek assistance to conceive and 80 per cent of couples undergoing fertility treatment are currently unsuccessful.
Writing with humour and honesty, Caroline Gallup describes the social, emotional, spiritual and physical impact of infertility on her and her husband, Bruce, including feelings of bereavement for the absent child, the unavoidable sense of inadequacy and the day-to-day difficulties of financial pressure.
As well as telling her own moving story, she also offers information and guidance for others who are infertile, or who are considering or undergoing treatment.
