Is Running During Pregnancy Safe?

I found this video on ABC News, not only helpful, but extremely timely.

It discusses the question of whether running during pregnancy is safe.

One of our physical therapists, Barbara Fallon-Wallace is in her 6th month of pregnancy AND is also a competitive runner.  There are 3 key points to take away from the video:

1.  Being active, especially during pregnancy, is always better than choosing to be inactive.

2.  Active women recover faster, post-pregnancy than less active women.

3.  Pregnancy is not a disease, merely a condition.  You are healthy, so work to remain healthy.

Enjoy the video.
