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.
