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.

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.

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.

Good workout today. I'm racing at USU this weekend, so coach had our group only do 6X1000m. 1 min rest. 3:00, 3:00, 3:01, 3:04 3:04 3:05. Felt really good until the 5th one. Still went well though. The main group did 10 and they were flying!

Premeet today. I felt good, the strides felt really good. I decided to keep it pretty easy because this may be my last race before track cones, so I would like to do well and have that bit of extra confidence heading into track season than not

Good race. In a gist, warmed up 2.2 miles, then raced. It was my first time being back in Cache Valley since August. The race went out well. Jason Lynch took a commanding lead, and not knowing who he was, I expected to reel him back in. I had 10 m on the pack and was about 20m from Jason. After a mile the pack caught me, then I took the wind for the next 2.75 miles or so for the pack. Slowly people fell off, but I never made a surge. At 5k there were 3 of us, and I sped up a tad bit to try and catch Hason, whose lead has grown to 40 to 60 meters. Then the mud slipped Connor Ross and he had a bad fall, and Cody, from USU fell off a bit. I tried to kick it in to catch up to Jason, but he had a sizable lead, plus a kick over the last 350 m so I just didn't have enough room to catch him. Good race. Hopefully by track I'll improve a lot. 4 miles cool down, then ate a nice home cooked meal with the family.

Smithfield Canyon. 6:03 pace. I may have pushed it a bit too much on some of the downhills.

Great workout. Coach had the Group that was recovering from the race do a mile tempo and then a mile breakdown. Mile tempo was at 5:04ish(although everyone said their GPS watches said it was quite a bit far) then 1 mile at 4:50, then a 1200(we didn't have a set place to end it, so they told us to go off our GPS watches. Unfortunately, some of us were only running with regular watches, so at the front we kept going. Then the 800m was slow for me, about 2:24, then a 400 at 67. Great at the start, but I had trouble finishing.

Great workout for me today. I felt good and I stayed with the pack for the majority of it. It was a ladder of 4,8,12,8,4. The first 400 everyone was kinda just feeling the legs out. About 65 or 66. The 800 went better about 2:16. The 1200m I felt pretty good, about 3:28. I tried taking the lead into the wind for some of the guys, but I feel like it just slowed the group down but I still was up with the top group. The next 800 I got dropped and ran 2:22, the next was easier and I was in the middle/back and ran 63. Cool down after

hobblecreek. 8.2 or 8.3 miles up hobble creek canyon at a progressively harder effort. I felt good, a ton better than last time, and last time was one of my better workouts ( I was our tenth guy last time) first 15 minutes we keep it fast but easy(about 5:45-5:50 average) Next 15 we speed it up(about 5:40average pace) then we go into tempo effort, which was around 5:30 pace with the steep incline. I stayed with the top pack until the last 1.25 miles, but only faded about 8 seconds back, so that was better than last time. 46:07 overall time

good workout. I learned that I need to pace myself better. It was 2xmile, 2x1200 and 2x800. Miles were meant to be fairly controlled. 4:50 and 4:46. 1200 was supposed to be 3:33 for the first and 3:30 for the second, but the first was 3:31 and the second was 3:33. 800s went poor and it was all just mental. 2:20 and 2:25. Cool down after. Warm up 3 miles, and ran about 400m in between intervals. The workout was at intramural field.
