Runner competes while being 34 weeks pregnant

  • National champion Alysia Montano is now 34 weeks pregnant but that didn't stop her from running. Reports suggest that she didn't win yesterday but explained that being slower than her best speed didn't matter to her.

    "I just didn't want to get lapped and be the first person to get lapped in the 800," she said.

    The 28-year-old's doctors encouraged her for the race. "What I found out mostly was that exercising during pregnancy is actually much better for the mom and the baby," she said. "I did all the things I normally do."
