Mom Breaks World Record for Running a Marathon While Pushing a Baby in a Stroller

Jessica Bruce, 32, has long been a marathoner. Her best time is 2 hours and 58 minutes. When she gave birth to baby Daniel 7 months ago, she didn't want to stop. So she began training while pushing a stroller.

Bruce recently put her new training to the test by running a marathon in Abingdon, Oxfordshire, UK. While pushing her baby in a stroller, she completed the marathon in 3 hours, 17 minutes, and 52 seconds. This beats the previous world record by 14 minutes.

Her husband ran alongside her. He fed the baby a bottle while they kept running. Although they brought along supplies for a diaper change, it was unnecessary. Baby Daniel slept for the first 20 miles, then relaxed for the remaining distance. You can read more about their run at the Daily Telegraph.
