Pregnant woman ran marathon

Alysia Montano, left, who is 34 weeks pregnant, competes in the quarterfinals of the 800 meters in the U.S.
Women have been running pregnant for years now.But Alysia Montano took it to another level. Before Kathrine Switzer became the first woman to officially run the Boston Marathon in 1967, there were many myths floating around about women and long distance running, including that they were "too fragile" to run that far. Being a competitive runner since 2009, Mulcahy had her eyes set on completing the 118th Boston Marathon. February 28, 2013 By: scanney135 Comments(I had gave birth to my third child in May 2015 and am currently getting back into running after pregnancy, labor and delivery. I wanted to maintain my fitness level and continue to run as I was doing prior to becoming pregnant. I consider myself a runner, so naturally I choose running over any other activity and dare say I think it superior. I wanted to be that amazing girl who people congratulated for staying in such good shape during pregnancy. I hear you on the pride thing and I still don’t like admitting that I had to stop running at 30 weeks pregnant.
I think this is a great post Sarah, not only to those who are currently running while pregnant, but in general, good post about listening to your body.
Thanks for commenting Amanda:) I think running through pregnancy can be done successfully in a smart and measured manner. I did a similar thing with HIIT training, which resulted a diastasis rectus very early in my pregnancy. I’m so sorry to hear about what happened to you but hopefully telling the story will show pregnant ladies that it’s OK (and necessary) to listen to your body!! I was extremely lucky to run throughout my pregnancy and not have any pelvic floor problems. Before she conceived, she had been running 90 miles a week while training for the London Marathon so six miles a day was a significant reduction in mileage.

Montano, who’s nearly eight months pregnant with her first child, competed in an 800-meter race at this year’s US track and field championships this past Thursday, June 26.
My husband was very skeptical about me running the marathon from the beginning, and made it quite clear to me that he was very worried. In the week prior to Boston, I read multiple articles and watched numerous news stories commemorating last year's marathon and it hit me. But here I am, running during pregnancy again, although I am only running about 18 miles a week, and trying to listen to my body better this time! I doubt if and when I ever get pregnant I will be allowed the continue running during my pregnancy, just because of of high-risk medical status. For a long time, my solution was to wear a tampon when I ran (it closed off the urethra from the other side) but I finally brought it up to my GYN and now I have a lovely new device called a pessary that I wear as needed and it essentially holds my bladder in the correct position. While some were critical, many were inspired by her example of defying convention and pushing against perceived limits of what's "normal" for a pregnant women.Granted, Montano's pace wasn't anywhere near her personal best (She's been the 800-meter national champion the past four years). When other runners and spectators found out I was pregnant, they met me with astonishment, surprise, awe and complete support.”Ms.
We ran in groups of hundreds and both sides of the road were filled with wall-to-wall people for the entire length of the course.
If you want to run during pregnancy consider seeing a physical therapist who specializes in women’s health and pelvic floor health.
I’m currently 21 weeks pregnant with baby 2 and just wrapped up a run this morning (ran to 30 weeks in my first pregnancy). I am far stronger than I was even after my first pregnancy but still far from where I should be to support the kind of training I want to do.
I didn’t run much while pregnant because it was uncomfortable with my new center of gravity, but I did a lot of Kettlebell.
But when I got pregnant in January 2012 it (the leaking) came back right around 12-14 weeks.

I think that I would be in better shape postpartum had I not run and pursued other forms of exercise during my pregnancy. Hopefully this post will help you make and informed decision about your pregnancy and running. I’m 21 weeks now and from the start have said I will exercise as much I can during the pregnancy.
A big man, a huge man, with bared teeth was set to pounce, and before I could react he grabbed my shoulder and flung me back, screaming, “Get the hell out of my race and give me those numbers!” Then he swiped down my front, trying to rip off my bib number, just as I leapt backward from him.This year, over 14,000 women competed in the Boston Marathon alongside nearly 18,000 men. It is so important that we focus on the pelvic floor during, after, pregnancy and for the rest of our lives.
Malcahy show just how far perceptions have come about what pregnant woman can accomplish.While I didn’t run during my pregnancy last year, just a week before my daughter was born, I hiked five miles in Breakheart Reservation in Saugus, Mass. A visit to a physical therapist before or after you pregnancy could mean a quicker recovery postpartum.
I think prenatal yoga would have been a great start, and I’m definitely planning on doing that with my next pregnancy. I often got berated in my blogs during pregnancy recommending others to take it down a notch. Colleen Murphy Smith was six and a half months pregnant when she made her way through the Boston suburbs to downtown Boylston Street.
She posted a photo on Twitter and Instagram that showed her grinning with her medal and sporting a T-shirt emblazoned with “FUTURE BOSTON MARATHONER ON BOARD.”The caption read, “We are Boston Marathoners!!! I wish I had taken the time during pregnancy to explore alternatives to running, had I done so maybe the muscles of my pelvic floor and basket would be strengthened instead of strained.
