Can you imagine running the Boston Marathon, pregnant?
Running the Boston Marathon was on Julie McGivery’s Bucket List, although crossing the finish line while 32 weeks pregnant was not the way she had planned to do it.
Back on Monday, the 36-year-old Moncton woman completed the 42 kilometre race in about six hours 50 minutes — nearly twice her qualifying time of 3:35.
She said she could have quit many times but was determined that she was going to finish the race. She said she received her official acceptance letter on the same day she found out she was having a second child.
Julie and her husband don’t yet know if they’re having a boy or a girl, but she said they have settled on a middle name… Boston.
