Ali on the Run Show Episode 628: Becs Gentry, Peloton Instructor, 2:32 Marathoner, Mom

“None of my friends explained this to me!”

Becs Gentry is a 2:32 marathoner, a Peloton tread and strength instructor, and, as of October 22, 2022, a mom! Becs returns to the Ali on the Run Show today to talk about her road to motherhood. She talks about getting pregnant after experiencing a miscarriage (she was pregnant during last year’s live show — but no one knew yet!), and about what running was like throughout her pregnancy. She shares her birth story (all the details!), reflects on the first few months of motherhood, and talks about how she approached her return to running and movement. Plus, what it was like coaching Ashton Kutcher as he trained for the 2022 New York City Marathon, and the 12-mile run that brought Becs back to life in the best way possible.
