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.

Short-Term Running Goals:

Lose enough weight to get back to my small self and prepare to run at BYU's team.  Become an all-american in cross country and track.

Long-Term Running Goals:

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


I recently returned from serving a two year mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Ghana.  I graduated from Sky View High School in Smithfield, Utah.  My great-grandpa was Paul Mantz, a hollywood pilot.

Ran with the team again.  We went through a warm up, stretched, did strides, then the team did a mile and I watched, then I cooled down with a few of the guys and Claire.  Small quad pain.

Today wasn't great.  I felt a bit tired from the past few days, so I just took it easier.  32 minutes for the first 5 miles, then 3 minutes quick to finish it out. Lots of rain and I was soaked about half way through.

A bit over 30 minutes(whoops).  I ran with the high school team.  They ended up doing tempo, so I just ran with a couple of guys for the 3 miles.  They said our pace was about 5:40-45 on the tempo.  Cool down after with 8 strides at the end.

6 miles in 36:17.  Nice run.  It's feeling easier and easier as time goes on.  It took a while to get into a rythem, but after the first mile it went well.

An interesting thing, is since I left to serve in Ghana, I haven't listened to music while running.  I always made it a point to run with a friend or with music before, but I don't think I need it anymore.
