She did race in high school but only in grades 8 to 10 before, returning to running while at Simon Fraser University in 1986, where she honed her running capabilities before embarking on her triathlon career.
Montgomery considered her triathlon career as a full-time "job", and thus competed in very few track races. She competed only once at 1,500m, six times at the 3,000m, six times at the 5,000m, and completed just nine 10,000m events.
She competed at the first Olympic triathlon at the 2000 Summer Olympics. She did not finish the competition due to a crash on the bike leg. She was also selected to compete in the 10,000 meters on the track, but had to withdraw due to injury sustained in the triathlon crash.
