Staine said she ran for about two hours Sunday in preparation for the Garry Bjorklund half-marathon on June 22.

Later in the evening she had a sore back and her pain got worse the next morning. When her pain became unbearable, her husband called an ambulance.

During the emergency room examination, medical staff detected a fetal heartbeat and she was whisked to the delivery room.

About like 5 minutes later, at 3.25pm on Monday, she gave birth to her daughter who weighed 6 pounds, 6 ounces (2.9 kilograms), and was 18.9 inches (48 centimetres) long.

The girl, who is born about 5 weeks early, has been named Mira - short for Miracle.
