Is it safe to run during your pregnancy?

Most doctors' advice it is OK if you are in good health and your pregnancy is uncomplicated. However, certain conditions won´t allow in some cases to exercise at all.

All women should check before engaging in high energy exercises with their healthcare provider. Women who run, swim, or exercise regularly before learning they are pregnant can usually continue at their normal pace for as long as it feel comfortable.

Montaño raced in 2014 after getting green light from her midwife and doctor to run while pregnant.
