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.

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

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.

Total Distance

AM-race. Wasn’t the best for our team, but a good experience. About 3 miles of warm up, 5 mile race, 5.4 cool down. I got out well enough that I was able to get to the lead just after the mile. I stayed around top 10 for the rest of the race, touching the lead every once in a while. I felt sick with a stuffy nose and sore throat for the past few days, so I ran a little more conservative than usual. Robert Brandt started a push around 3 miles. After that Cooper fell off and for a little bit it was just Jake, Brandt, and I. Eventually, Jake fell off, and Brandt and I went back and forth. I tried to pass him a few times in the last 1000m, but it wasn’t until the last 100m or so I was able to pass him.  

PM-6 miles with some of the team at a rainy pre’s trail.
