Running Accomplishments:

Pre-high school: I ran a lot of local 5ks and a few half marathons.  I didn't do a ton of training, but I just had fun, and I got more serious about it as high school got closer.

High school: I enjoyed running a lot, especially cross country.  I originally did track to keep my in shape for cross country.  I ran at Footlocker Nationals, the Adidas Dream mile, Brooks PR Invitational, world xc junior championships, and a few local 5ks.

Long-Term Running Goals:

Make sure I have fun, not get burned out, and get faster.

School records in the 5km and 10km.  


Served a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints from July 2015-July 2017.  I gained 30 lbs. during the service and came back out of shape; however I knew that if the Lord wanted me to once again run competitively, he would bless me to return to fitness. 

I graduated from Sky View High School in Smithfield, Utah. I currently run for Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah.

AM-8x1000m at Intramural with 60 seconds rest.  It a bit wet, so I thought it would be slow, but it wasn't too bad.  We started as a pack at 3:07, 3:04, 3:03, 3:02, and then we were given the okay to let it be a bit quicker and went 2:59, 2:59.  After this, instead of doing 10, it became 8, so we ran 2:54 and 2:52.  Felt good and smooth.  

PM-6.14 miles at Intramural.  Lots of stops to time Will doing 6x1000m. It was hot.

AM-14.25 miles with Clayton and Dallin.  

PM-6.25 miles wiht Dallin and Will.  We had a debate on which was better, cookies or donuts.  I'd say donuts, but it does seem like everyone in Provo likes cookies more.
