For #internationalwomensday I am going to show strength by showing you one of my weakest and proudest moments. I took this picture as I was sitting alone in the Olympic Village in Rio, watching on tv as our final 800 Women's freestyle relay won gold. I was overwhelmed with disbelief at winning my fifth gold medal and also in disappointment, because that was not at all how I had expected to win it. But in that moment, I CHOSE to have strength. I CHOSE to be the woman I knew I could be. So I celebrated the five other incredible women who helped me achieve this goal, cried (an embarrassing amount) out of pure pride, joy, and love, when I saw them on the medal stand. Being a strong woman looks and feels different to every person. Be your version of strength every day of your life💛 I encourage all of you beautiful women to not only share your strongest moments, but how you were strong in your weakest moments. Those are the moments where we inspire others the most.
We decided having to stop dancing was sooo not worth having a non-blurry photo💃🏼❤ #gno
You are never ever ever ever ever too old for hot chocolate, Zootopia, Ariel pajamas, and sleepovers💛 Love this little one so much for constantly reminding me how much beauty there is in life.
I decided a fedora would be much more exciting than a cap at our photo shoot today. May not be quite as hydrodynamic though...😉 @speedousa #teamspeedo #teamfedora
Cannot thank @laureussport enough for the trip of a lifetime. 72 hours was plenty to make memories that will last a lifetime! Especially when you're with your best friend💖 @abzcut @gopro #laureusworldsportsawards #quik #gopro

Prayer is the best way to draw strength from Heaven🙏🏻 Thanks for the reminder @spencerfarrar💛
Had an amazing and God-filled weekend with the most beautiful women I know. I am so fortunate that God placed each and every one of you in my life🙏🏻💖 #AIAWomensRetreat #GodisSObeyondgood
There's cat people... and then there's cat people that teach their cat tricks💁🏼 #guilty #myparentsgotwaytooexcited #imaginewhattheywillbelikewithgrandkids
Missing some serious lazy snow days with my favorite💛❄️ #takemeback
Wouldn't want to dive into 2017 with anyone but my bear bros👊🏻🐻 #startingthenewyearoffright #gopro
Not because of anything you did or didn't do, because of any of your achievements or failures, but because you were created by the most loving God. For those of you who need to hear it, know that there is nothing you can do to make Him love you any more, and nothing you can do to make Him love you any less. Merry Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays❤🎅🏼
I can hardly begin to explain how special it was for me to have my Denver book signing at Regis Jesuit, my home away from home. Thank you from the bottom of my heart to everyone who came out, especially during the holiday season. It was a true privilege speaking and getting to meet each one of you! Also thank you to @gopro and @quik_app for making it SO easy to capture such beautiful memories that I'll have forever!

Your life is worth investing in. Every day of it. Don't let a moment slip by because you'll never have that moment again. Love with every ounce of your being and take the greatest joy in the simplest of pleasures💛🌸
I love you more than I love peppermint bark. And you know exactly how much that is❤🎅🏼
I'm taking over @speedousa's Instagram tomorrow morning and you're in for a treat. Don't miss out! 💖💛💚#withstrengthanddignity
