Why Alysia Montano wears a flower in her hair during every race.

Even though she grew up playing football, shooting hoops and running races against all the boys in her neighborhood, U.S. 800-meter champion Alysia Montano never wanted to be thought of as one of them.

As a result, she started wearing a flower behind her right ear to remind the boys they were getting beat by a girl.

The flower remains Montano’s trademark even though her opponents are now world-class female middle-distance runners.

"The flower to me means strength with femininity," Montano said in June after winning the 800 at the U.S. Olympic trials. "I think that a lot of people say things like you run like a girl. That doesn’t mean you have to run soft or you have to run dainty. It means that you’re strong."

Song of The Week: Clair De Lune.

I’ve been listening to this a lot recently. It is so soothing, blissful and vintage and I kind of intend for it to go with my recent posts. It makes me feel like sailing great expanses of ocean without a care in the world. Kind of like the Titanic without that sinking feeling.
