Makenna Myler, 28, of Heber, Utah, has been running competitively for more than a decade. Taking on a mile-run challenge probably doesn’t sound like a big deal for someone like her. But what if she ran that mile in under six minutes? Pretty impressive speed, right? Well, Myler did even better than that: She recently smashed the six-minute mile time during a run in her ninth month of pregnancy.
Myler’s husband, Mike, posted a video on TikTok showing his athletic wife running around a track. He made a bet with her back in month two of her pregnancy that if she could run the mile in less than eight minutes, he’d pay her $100.
At the start of the video, you can see Myler quickly pass by the camera held by her husband, who couldn’t help but remark on his wife’s pregnancy belly.
“That’s a big belly,” he said as she sped by.
We’re hoping the baby takes after mom and has a safe and speedy delivery!
