The person that said winning isn't everything, never won anything.
Success breeds success.
I am a member of a team, and I rely on the team, I defer to it and sacrifice for it, because the team, not the individual, is the ultimate champion.
True champions aren't always the ones that win, but those with the most guts.
I've worked too hard and too long to let anything stand in the way of my goals. I will not let my teammates down and I will not let myself down.
If you don't love what you do, you won't do it with much conviction or passion.
I am building a fire, and everyday I train, I add more fuel. At just the right moment, I light the match.
It is more difficult to stay on top than to get there.
Take your victories, whatever they may be, cherish them, use them, but don't settle for them.
The vision of a champion is bent over, drenched in sweat, at the point of exhaustion, when nobody else is looking.
Failure happens all the time. It happens every day in practice. What makes you better is how you react to it.
Chicken, brown rice, and veggies is a great healthy dinner option. It's full of whole grains and protein, and will keep you full for a long time.
I am happy that the young girls have a lot more choices these days and an opportunity to feel better about themselves.
You can't just beat a team, you have to leave a lasting impression in their minds so they never want to see you again.
Soccer isn't very social. Plus, if you don't like someone on the other team, you can do something about it.
Being a good teammate is when you try to sprint down a ball that everyone thinks is going out of bounds. But you go after it anyways and you get it.
Follow your heart and make it your decision.
You may get skinned knees and elbows, but it's worth it if you score a spectacular goal.
There are always new, grander challenges to confront, and a true winner will embrace each one.
It is not sacrifice if you love what you're doing.
I could just have chips and salsa for dinner every day.
I played basketball and soccer my freshman year in high school.
Sports have become increasingly more specialized, but that doesn't mean they shouldn't be fun.
I love watching gymnastics, swimming, and track and field.
I don't like to play rough, but I will if I have to.
I don't like to stop. I'm a big person who looks at where the hubs are because I hate changing planes.
I got to experience soccer at the highest level at a young age; I decided I wanted to be part of that for as long as possible.
I hope all you young girls see yourself up there... we were just like you.
Golf is social. It brings a lot of people together.
I make a lot of mistakes, too, and I'm constantly re-evaluating how I'm doing things and trying to be better every day, whether it's as a mom or taking care of myself.
English muffins with avocado is one of my favorite breakfasts.
I could sit there and eat pasta all day long and not worry about it when I was younger, and now I really have to focus on making sure I set a good example for my kids.
As a mother I think you often get so caught up in trying to take care of everyone else that you forget to take care of yourself. But I'm a much better wife and mother when I take the time to take care of myself.
