In my case, the Trials have given me a new hero in the running world: Alysia Montaño.
In about 45 seconds of post-race interview, after winning the women's 800 to qualify for the 2012 US Olympic team, Montaño summed up everything that "you run like a girl" really means.
“The flower is.. to me, means strength with femininity. I think that a lot of people say things like 'you run like a girl.' That doesn't mean that you have to run soft or you have to run dainty. It means that you're strong. We are the givers of life."(For the record, most news agencies have botched the quote. I spent time today transcribing it from the post-race interview video.)
