Any excuse you’ve ever given for not getting out and running has instantly become invalid.

Thirty-four weeks pregnant Alysia Montano competed in the 800 meter race on Thursday at the US Track and Field Championships.

Montano is due to give birth to her first child in just seven weeks, but the five-time national champion decided to run the race anyway. She trailed the lead pack for most of the race and finished last with a time of 2 minutes, 32.13 seconds.

She was never lapped and received a “rousing ovation” when she crossed the finish line.

Of course, there are plenty of people out there who will contest that you shouldn’t run or participate in any sort of activity where they exert themselves too much, but Montano consulted doctors beforehand. They not only said that it was fine for her to run the race, they encouraged her to do so.
