May 8, 2024

Elite American long-distance runner Anna Rohrer made headlines on Saturday when she won the half-marathon at the OneAmerica 500 Festival Mini-Marathon in Indianapolis while 23 weeks pregnant.

Clocking 1:15:18, the now two-time winner of the race was not expecting the win. She told Canadian Running that without any expectations heading into the race, it took a while to acknowledge that she was in a real position to win. “I just wanted to stay in it,” she says. “When I saw I could win, I trusted my instincts and went for it.” Canadian Running
