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.
PM-10 mile progressive run: warm up mile then 6:00, 5:36, 5:31, 5:19, 5:18, 5:11, 5:03, 4:49, 4:48. Felt great, the weather was really nice, and it was great running with Milly and Clayton again.

as someone who's been on the blog for a while, have you seen anyone run a weekly mileage of over 200 without racing an ultra in that week? I wanna know if I set the unofficial blog record a couple weeks ago lol

Thanks Eugene! Honestly, Rob Murphy or Sasha might be the best ones to ask, but I would bet thatís the record. Congrats on getting up that high in mileage
