On her favorite coach:

“I would have to say that my favorite coach was my Mom… she was tough. If it was not track related, at least at practice, don’t talk to her about it. She helped me understand not to take things personally. Business is business.”

On making your health a priority:

“You have to learn how to take of your body, because time is going to take care of you. Whether you like it or not, it is inevitable that's what is going to happen.” 

On what PRETTY GIRLS SWEAT means to her:

"That there isn’t anything that I can not do."
