A  mother in Minnesota gave birth to her daughter after training for a half-marathon and without knowing she was pregnant.

Trish Staines, 33, was experiencing unbearable back pain following a two-hour jog on Monday and, to her surprise, it was due to a baby ready to experience the world.  According to reports, she didn’t feel any fetal movements and her husband had had a vasectomy.

The unforeseen birth garnered the name “Miracle” for the newborn, six-pound, six-ounce baby girl, who was good health. Staines and her husband also have two children together and three more from her husband’s previous marriage.
