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.
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.
12 miles with Jerrell. We met in Smithfield this time, and we did Golf Course extended, but then extended more up Birch Canyon and did part of the 16 crossings course.

Was just reading about Grant Fisher in Running Times magazine who took first at Foot Locker Nationals (you were 7th). So I looked you up. Running Times did a write-up on you in March of this year. I thought that was a pretty good article! They mentioned your age group course PRs for half marathon distance during 2011 and 2012. The article stated that you rejected the financial prize in 2012 so that you could retain you amateur status. Is that the way it works? If you win a road race, you cannot collect any money or would be considered a professional? I mean, like Jake and Allie win races probably frequently - can't they retain amateur status when they collect prize money for winning or placing at races? Or are they considered pros? Jake is planning to qualify for the Olympics and amateur status is required for that. I don't know...not too up on that...anyway...congrats on the Running Times article. Just learned about it...a bit late; the congrats. Take care.

Amateur status doesn't exist anymore. What Conner is concerned about is NCAA eligibility which is a different thing.
