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.
Eventually get the school records in the 5km and 10km.
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.
My goal was 5 miles at 5:48 pace, and just to see how I felt. I went a bit faster the first 2 miles, and was just hurting, so I cut it short to 4 miles and finished in 22:40. After my legs were just beat, so I slowly ran back to where I started.
