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:

Personal:

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.

I haven't posted in a while about training. The last run I completed was great, but I had some hip pain. About an hour after the run, I couldn't walk without a sharp pain. The next week and a half, I couldn't do anything without a sharp pain in my back and hip. I got a couple MRI's before finding it was a sacral stress fracture. Only recently I've been able to cross train without pain in my Sacrum. I had to pull out of the Houston Half Marathon and won't be running the Olympic trials in the marathon either. Now my goals are to try and run the Olympic standards in the 10k and 5k. 
AM-3000 yard swimming, 30 minutes of pool running.

Wow- glad you found it, at least. Heal fully, then get back at it.

Wow. I figured that's what happened to you after that last post. I still check your blog regularly. Sorry to hear that, Conner. But I'm sure you're so thankful that it didn't happen during your great cross country season and team championship! Don't worry--if you're not running indoor--because indoor track kind of sucks anyhow. :-) Outdoor track is going to be great for you, I feel. Don't rush it, and make sure you heal well.
