The picture of a pregnant 35 year old mother of one seen competing in a marathon has gone viral.
The woman identified as Shen Huijuan, is a teacher, teaching Physical Education in a middle school situated in Hangzhou City, east China’s Zhejiang Province.
On November 5, she participated in a marathon along with her husband and son.
In China, traditionally, the pregnant women are barred from strenuous physical activities.
However, social media users took a sigh of relief after knowing that Shen is not an ordinary teacher. In fact, early in 2016, Shen finished the Hangzhou Marathon with a record of 3.16’30”, ranking third in the women’s category.
In as much as strenuous activities is discouraged during pregnancy, active lifestyle is encouraged.
Kudos to her.
