I am training at such a high level that I actually could eat anything and get by. But as my coach always says, your body is like a car, and food is like your fuel. I am a race car, so I can't just put unleaded fuel in my car. I need that good premium fuel. ---->>>

Sometimes bad things are going to happen in your life, and those things can make you stronger if you just learn how to get over them. ---->>>

Running was like the friend that never left. It was just always there. ---->>>

I didn't have a big-time contract out of college like most athletes. In fact I had no contract at all. ---->>>

I listen to a lot of Christian music, and reading my Bible calms me down immensely. ---->>>

Maybe there's a little girl who thinks she can be an Olympic athlete, and she sees all the things I struggled through to get here. Yeah, I didn't walk away with a medal or run away with a medal, but I think there's lessons to be learned when you win and lessons to be learned when you lose. ---->>>

When I'm standing in a stadium packed with 80,000 screaming fans, I can't just whip out my Bible before I run. That's when I start praying! It's so loud that I can't even hear what I'm saying, but it always helps. ---->>>

I definitely would say, by sixth grade, I was a professional shoplifter - and not because I wanted to. I'm not going out to shoplift earrings or clothes or shoes like the average teenager. I was shoplifting frozen dinners at a grocery store. ---->>>
