The post Five months pregnant Montano runs 800m race appeared first on Vanguard News.

"I wanted Wonder Woman to represent me", said Alysia.

"I go, "Mom is going to run with your sibling in her belly, '" Alysia recalled of telling her two-year-old about the race".

The couple made plans to get pregnant again a year ago following the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, but they were prepared to put it off due to the Zika outbreak in Brazil. "And I see that playing true in running".

Despite running over two minutes in her two most famous races, Montana has in fact run a personal best time of 1min 57.34secs, back in 2010.

Call her super-woman or wonder woman if you like, but this is not the first time she has pulled this incredible fit.

Montano's decision to run while pregnant was one she made with her doctor's blessing, not that that necessarily stopped some people from sharing their unsolicited opinions.

"I thought it (the film) was awesome", Montano said.

Montano seems to have more patience than I would, saying that she takes care of herself, and besides, "I'm not super-duper delicate", she said. "We're just different and that's the point". "Who wants to pick up a book and read the same chapter over and over again?"
