On days when I do not work, I am working on my image. I have to hit the gym. I have beauty appointments. I have to work toward my next job and maintaining my image, just like an athlete.

That's what you feel as an athlete. Pretty much our job is to make the impossible happen every day. It's like magic, you know. I like that.
As an athlete and as a woman, I get my confidence from playing sports because it shifts your focus from what your body looks like to what your body can do for you. That's what we all should be doing. It shouldn't be about looking perfect.
Of course I want to look well and fit - and as an athlete, I want to look strong.
I think nowadays it's so easy as an athlete to become a statistic whether or not you lose everything or having trouble or whatever it may be.
I think being a rock star is a little bit different than being an athlete or even a movie star.
I will be a complete man, a complete athlete, with a fight with Roy Jones Jr.
I'm an athlete who took the sport to another level. I don't get or ever got the respect from people.
I'm 33 years old; I'm getting old. Every year is different, and as an athlete, you've got to be honest with yourself.
As an athlete, you can train for so many years to be a 5K/10K runner. That's who you are, and it's hard to change that. Not using that technique - almost like a sprint - that's when you have to loosen up and just save as much energy as you can.
I want to be an athlete. I'm not just a running back. I play the running back position.
There was no way we were going to let this band hobble around on three legs. We chose the route that every professional actor, athlete and musician should do - leave the legend intact and bow out at the top.
Records are the only thing that remain of an athlete, the only thing that people will remember. If I want to ensure that people don't forget me, I can only stop once I've set the bar as high as possible for anyone coming after me.
The paradox of endurance sports is that an athlete can never work as hard as he wants, because if he pushes himself too far, his hematocrit will fall.
OK, I'll put it like this: I doubt if we will see another All-American basketball athlete who is a Rhodes Scholar.
My biggest accomplishment has been making a transition from athlete to author.
I don't know whether it's the athlete in me or the passion I have for the game: I always think that I can step back on the field and play.
Being a pro athlete doesn't mean you treat your body right, even though it's so important to what you do. Being a runner and training for important races has taught me more about how to fuel than swimming ever did. I realize it's a process and part of the commitment.
If you don't eat right as an athlete, you'll get tired and won't be as sharp. It's simple to drink sodas and sports drinks, but water is the most essential drink to put in your body.
