The temperature at the USATF Outdoor Championships in California was 110 degrees last week, but that didn’t stop Alysia Montano. Neither did her pregnancy.
The 31 -year-old Olympic runner from Queens, New York, wore a Wonder Woman top and bright flowers in her hair for the race at Hornet Stadium in Sacramento Thursday. And, yes, she’s five months pregnant.
” I came here last time at 8 months pregnant in 2014 and it was such an amazing experience ,” she told Team USA. Adding:” There is something about coming out to any venue not really expecting to wins but going along with the journey and insuring what comes out of it .”
While she might have finished last in her first-round hot with a day of 2 minutes and 21.40 seconds, Montano beat her 2014 time by nearly 11 seconds, USA Today noted.
