Running Accomplishments:

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.

Total Distance

    XC/meet-5.5 We had our meet today to see who is on varsity and what times we have at the start of the season.  Kyler asked if I'd pace him for a 16:45, and I agreed.  We did our first 400 in 1:12, and that was too fast and I think it took a bit too much out of him for the first part.  After that I slowed down to pace him better, but he still looked to be moving at a good pace.  At the mile we were 5:25, and Tyson went from 3 seconds behind to running with me.  We hit the canal for the second time and Kyler fell off pace.  At mile 2 we were 11:00 (5:35 for this mile) and Tyson was starting to slow a little.  I then decided to push the last bit when we hit the canal the third time.  I hit the track for the last time and timed my last 300m.  I ended up being 47 for it, so I'm pretty happy about that.  Tyson was 17:07, so it was a good day for him.  No one really had the race they were hoping for, but it was still good to have a meet to see where we're at before Highland. 

    PM-5 easy miles.  My iPod ran out of battery halfway through.  I didn't feel as fresh as I did this morning.
