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.

Eventually get the school records in the 5km and 10km.  

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.

You beat Day and Dressel. I know you're probably wanting to be able to switch gears more quickly, but I think you have the capability of sustained drives, like Solinsky, and as you do so your speed and power will increase. You'll still be able to take a few seconds off your 400 time, no doubt about it.

Nice job, Conner. I agree with the comment above. You don't have a bad kick, but your real strength is your STRENGTH, just like Eyestone's. He never had much of a kick back in high school, but none of us could hang onto him late enough to show it. You could strike hard from, say, 600-800 meters out and really make people hurt. Of course, you know better than anyone where your real talent is--in races at 10K or above. Outdoor track should be much more rewarding, and next XC season will be special, I think. One day you'll be an excellent marathoner just like your coach. By the way, I don't comment as much on this blog because my wife and I are now retired and living in Thailand.
