Makenna Myler of Heber, Utah, is an avid runner, but she didn't know how pregnancy would impact her sport. Discussing it with her husband Mike brought up a friendly wager.

"Neither of us had any idea what to expect during a pregnancy," Makenna told Today. "We've always heard I'd just kind of shut down as I got further in.

"I think [the people who know me] were more impressed by the TikTok views," she told Today. "However, I think the mile put the entirety of my training into perspective for people close to me. I hope it inspires women, just as I was inspired by other pregnant athletes, to pursue goals in spite of what the status quo says we ought to pursue."
