Montano accomplished an incredible fete. Her time of 2:32 in the 800 is amazing for 99% of runners (which could translate into a 5 minute mile. But for her to do it in the 3rd trimester of pregnancy is mind boggling. I suspect her child will be a track star!

If I were running in the same 800 meter race with her she would have crossed the finish, sipped ice water and stretched out before I crossed the finish line.

She would have left me in the dust. This sounds alot like the BYU Studio C skit a few weeks ago.

And this is supposed to be a good idea? The strain on that uterus and that baby was tremendous.
