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. 

PRs: 800: 1:56.80-State Track 2014

1600: 4:10-State Track 2014/Mile: Sea Level-Adidas Grand Prix-4:07

3200:Alititude(4500ft): 8:57.99-State Track 2014-2 Mile:8:53 at Brooks PR Invitational

Half Marathon:

Short-Term Running Goals:

Lose enough weight to get back to my small self and prepare to run at BYU's team.  Become an all-american in cross country and track.

Sub-14 min 5k in indoor season.

Long-Term Running Goals:

Make sure I have fun, not get burned out, and get faster.

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.

Michigan today. Warm up, then mile on track, mile on grass, 1200 track, mile on grass, 800 track, mile grass, 400 track, mile grass. About 80 sec recovery. I heard 90, but usually it was 80. 4:40, 5:05, 3:25, 5:04, 2:18, 5:04, 64, 5:00. It hurt, but I kept through it. Last mile I wanted to go sub-5, but just missed it. Good day. The grass miles were supposed to be our recovery, but they weren't for me.

Are you going to Oregon this weekend?

I won't go, they are sending 12 guys from what I heard, so the plan for me is to redshirt. I wish I could be up there racing, but hopefully by indoor season I'll be traveling.

You have a lot of talented guys. Makes sense to redshirt and have you at top form for 4 straight years. I think you'll be ready for track.
