...and their women are as strong as camels
Chicago is a tough town, and so are its citizens, including those who inaccurately used to be called "the weaker sex."
The Associated Press reports: CHICAGO (AP) — Amber Miller felt contractions just minutes after crossing the finish line at the Chicago Marathon. A few hours later, the suburban Chicago woman — who slogged her way through 26.2 miles while nearly 39 weeks pregnant — delivered a healthy baby girl.
"For me, it wasn't anything out of the ordinary. I was running up until that point anyway," Miller told The Associated Press in an interview from the hospital where she was recovering Monday.
Ms. Miller, 27, added somewhat unnecessarily "I am crazy about running."
