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.

I recently returned from serving a two year mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Ghana.  I gained 30 lbs. during the service and came back out of shape. I graduated from Sky View High School in Smithfield, Utah. I currently run for Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah.

AM-10 miles with some of the guys.  Nice and easy, and it actually felt easy this time.  I haven't felt this good in over 2 weeks.  

After I had another doctor's appointment.  He said that the infection will likely be gone by Sunday and then the incision will start to heal.  Hurray!

PM-5 miles.  I went and ran some grass loops and it felt pretty good.  

If anyone cares, I finally updated the race for nationals, so if you want to read that it's up. 

Total Distance

AM-4 easy miles.

PM-12 miles with Josh Ward when it was HOT.

It still felt hard to run, but today was easily the best day so far.  Having to think about keeping up with Josh was a bit frustrating.

AM-10 easy miles.  Still a painful.  I ran after another doctor's appointment, where he took out some stuff and the stuffed the hole with other stuff again.
