Marathon Runner Mom Breast Pumped for More Than 26 Miles


Trending Now


Long Island mama Molly Waitz just showed the world that mothers can do just about anything. The 27-year-old recently ran the New York City Marathon—and pumped the whole way through!

The avid runner raced for First Candle, a nonprofit committed to ending SIDS. Even though Waitz is a new mom––her son Bode is eight-months-old––she didn’t want feeding her baby to stop her from running the 26.2-mile race.

So what does a new mom do when she needs to nurse, but also wants to run a couple dozen miles? If you’re Waitz, you pop the hands-free Willow Pump into your bra and ready, set…go!

Waitz said, of her recent run, “I can run a marathon and still do it.” The marathon-pumping mom went on to add, “You don’t have to stop your whole life to feed your kid.”

With a six hour and 46 minute official race time, Waitz finished the marathon with a sense of accomplishment and 20 ounces of breast milk!
