Rockstar mama @alysiamontano #PregnantNotPowerless - running the SF marathon.
This is what running bliss looks like 😊"My first pregnancy with my now almost 3 year old, Linnéa Dori I ran and did other forms of exercise up until the day I delivered her at 40 weeks( literally went on a 5 miler the morning I went into labor, it took me 80 minutes, over double the time it takes me not preggo.. ok, I walked and ran)."
She also raced in the "800 meters at the 2017 USATF Outdoor Championships while 5 months pregnant," wrote @hollyperkins. "YES, it is perfectly safe to be active during pregnancy. In fact, every single client of mine who worked with me through her pregnancy reports that without question, every aspect of her experience was better because she stayed active. YES, each pregnancy is different, and each woman needs to make this decision for herself, with her doctor (or midwife). The ACOG official position statement on pregnancy and exercise says: 'Physical activity during pregnancy has minimal risks and has been shown to benefit most women, although some modification to exercise routines may be necessary because of the normal anatomic and physiologic changes and fetal requirements.'
Therefore, WAY TO GO @alysiamontano for being an amazing inspiration.
