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.

Short-Term Running Goals:
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.
Sub-14 min 5k in indoor season.
Long-Term Running Goals:
Make sure I have fun, not get burned out, and get faster.
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.
Am-8 easy miles. Well the trail was pretty tough, but it wasn't fast.
PM-5 easy miles with Doc. I talked to Coach about mileage, and I'll be taking this week easy for the most part and will jump into it hard next week.

You are pouring on the miles lately, nicely done. Iíve got a long history in Cache Valley, including earning 2 degrees at USU and meeting my wife and I miss it. Wish I would have been running seriously back in those days so I couldíve explored all the amazing trails. Enjoy, best of luck to you in your races.
