I’ll Have Another Episode 40: Alysia Montano

mondays

Alysia Montano is an American Middle Distance Runner. She is a 6 time USA outdoor champion in 2007, 2010, 2011, 20143 & 2015. She holds an 800 meter personal record of 1:57:34 and she ran in the 2012 Olympics. She famously ran in the 2014 USA outdoor Championships while 8 months pregnant, running a time of 2:32:13.

In this episode, Alysia and I talk about how she got started running, how she still loves soccer and what training looks like now that she has a 2 year old daughter. We also talk about running during pregnancy and how your body let’s you know what you can and can’t handle.

We go deep into her feelings on doping and how important it is as a clean athlete to stand up and be a voice against it. We talk about lost medals, moments and hope for change. She shares about her experience at the 2016 Olympic Trials and how she moved on from that heartbreak using motivation to start her own series of challenges- starting with first the Road to Burrito. She recently hosted a 5K challenge for a Thanksgiving Day race and has another one going on that YOU can participate in called the Resolution Revolution Run.
