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.  

Personal:

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 power run with cool down after. Didn’t know Coach was having us workout until later. My stomachs felt terrible during the run, but my legs felt great. Most of our splits were about 10 seconds faster than what they should have been. Last few were in the 5:00-20 range.

16 beautiful miles at deer creek. It was super foggy, and about 7 of the miles were in the snow, which made it hard, but it was a good run.

AM-Long run with James Withers, JD. Thorne, and Ethan.  We ran from Hyde Park to Smithfield Canyon to North Logan, and back before I did my three mile pickup.  Went 5:15, 5:14, 4:59 trying to find the raods that were the least icy.  I ended up about a mile and a half from my car, so I extended the long run a bit.

AM-Met up with Brandon Garnica in Logan to workout, but couldn’t find an indoor facility open. It was 26 degrees, but it said with humidity and windchill it said it felt like 16, so we were bundled in up. Warmed up 3 miles, then did 4xmile with 5 min jog recovery in between.  First mile was slightly uphill in 4:45, next three were downhill in 4:37, 4:27, and 4:23. The weather got significantly better as we got going and I felt a lot better after each one; honestly the 4:45 gave me doubts, but at least having someone else to struggle with helps you stay motivated to finish the workout.

PM-5 easy miles up the canyon.
