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."

And all the GREAT people who were helping me
and many thanks to Fran Krause who was my film workshop teacher at Calarts
My friend Nadya Mira’s gobelins student film! Nadya is awesome, she’s a great friend to talk to, and a great artist to bounce back and forth too. Sometimes we’d go get In & Out burgers during crunch time when we were still awake, and just chill out with a few meals. We could really bounce ideas at each other, while at the same time show ways to fix each other’s work. My film had a story crisis, and she was helpful enough to give me some pointers to clarify it up a bit more…. Check out her stylistically beautiful film she made during her time at cal arts! Those shots… Wow. Great character designs! It was such an honor to be a part of it! I helped out on some 2D animation!
