This real life Wonder Woman won't let anything hold her back.

At the USA Track & Field Nationals last week, 31-year-old Alysia Montaño ran her event while five months pregnant, flaunting her baby bump and wearing a Wonder Woman sports bra.

"I wanted Wonder Woman to represent me," Montaño told Team USA. "When I found out [Gadot] filmed half the movie five months pregnant, I said, 'I for sure am signing up for USA nationals.'"

While Montaño obviously thought carefully about her look for this event, the bright flower in her hair is actually a staple-she runs every race with a flower in her hair because it signifies "strength with femininity," she's said on her website. "I think that a lot of people say things like you run like a girl. That doesn't mean you have to run soft or you have to run dainty. It means that you're strong."

While she finished seventh in her 800-meter heat, Montaño ended the race with a huge smile and was greeted by her 2-year-old daughter at the finish line. Linnéa, of course, was wearing a "Strong Like Mom" t-shirt. Total mother-daughter goals.

Shockingly, this isn't the first time Montaño has competed on a national level while expecting. In 2014, she ran the same event while eight months pregnant with her first child. (Related: This Cardio HIIT Pregnancy Workout Will Safely Get Your Heart Pumping)

"I don't define myself as a runner," Montaño also told Team USA. "I really define myself as a fighter for good. And I see that playing true in running."

After using this for many months in an indoor pool, 2-3 times a week, thought it might be useful to update my experience. This has operated flawlessly and has become part of my swimming routine. Aside from taking an extra 45 seconds to place the earbuds correctly, I have no complaints or issues... check this products here :
