Alysia Montano Has A Message For Sports: You Can Be A Champion And A Mom.

Alysia Montaño is “that pregnant runner.” At eight months pregnant, she ran the 800-meter race.⁠

“It was this great empowering moment,” Montaño says. “Like, Wow I’m able to use my brain and also I have a uterus. That’s crazy! My brain still works, and my legs still work, and my body is this incredible, capable, physical machine as well as being able to grow a human.”
