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.

Personal:

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, but I lost 10 of those before I returned home.  I graduated from Sky View High School in Smithfield, Utah. I currently run for Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah.

Last run in Ghana.  I ran with Elder Peters and Elder Perry going back and forth on the road for a little over 30 minutes.  We are guessing on the distance.

I just returned from Ghana today.  The past two years have been the best two years of my life.  I may write more on it later.   Went 3 miles with my sister.  We held a 6:52 pace.  core later.

twenty minutes.  A bit sore and it's taking a while to get used to running again, but it's enjoyable.

Ran hard, probably too hard.  24 minutes for the first 4, then realized after that I'd hit it a bit quick for what I can handle now.  Fun though.

25 minutes.  My calves were pretty tired, but it felt good. I think I'll take it a bit easier tomorrow.

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.

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.

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.

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.

35 minutes.  Felt super tight in my hamstrings and quads.  I think it was from the strides.  I kept it at 6:30ish for the first 2.1, then after things started to loosen up and kept it around 6:00-6:10.

Good day.  I'm trying to get a good sleep schedule, but last night I stayed up fairly late, so when I woke up at 6:30 to get ready, I was super tired.  First mile was just waking up, then after I was able get in a good groove.  45 minutes overall.  It was somewhere between 7.1-7.2 in distance.  No hamstring pain, but my quad felt like yesterday.  It will be good to have Sunday off. 

Looking back on this week, I ran more than last week, but it wasn't as fast as last week.  I'll still take it as a good week though, as it's a build phase.

6 miles.  35 minutes.  First run over 3.5 miles in the past two years that had a sub-6 minute pace.  Legs surprisingly felt alright.  Breathing was another issue.  Kinda got competitive on the pace early on.
