Running and breastfeeding (at the same time)?

There are specific races organized for breastfeeding mums, like the Mommy MilkShake Marathon, but this picture was not taken at such a specific event. Randomly taken by Michael Packer, the photo shows a mother breastfeeding her baby while participating to a race in New Zealand. How neat is that? I think this is a physical exploit. I mean, I’ve breastfed while walking, cooking (if you do too, don’t forget to watch for the hot stove!), bouncing, and doing all sorts of things, but nothing as physically demanding as running. Admittedly, the people on the picture seem to be more walking than running (was the pic taken after the race?), but still, I’m impressed!

Do you have breastfeeding stories that are out of the ordinary?
