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.

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.
AM-11.2 miles, starting at 5:50AM. Earlier than I wanted, but it's fine.
PM-7.2 miles with strides.

Today I watched the YouTube video of your recent 12 x 1K on the field. So good! You may not have as strong of a team as you had last year (we'll see what happens, though), but YOU are looking great! Best of luck in the rest of your season.

Just watched the video myself, reiterating what Shawn said super inspiring stuff. Secretly rooting for you over our Kenyan duo at nationals.

Thanks Shawn and Eugene! It was a blast to run those, and the team is looking good. It was one of our early workouts, so some people were still rusty, but it was great. Eugene, that Kenyan duo is really good, but I hope to beat them.
