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.

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

      We had a meet over in Mantua at Box Elder's course.  This course is one of those true gritty dirty XC courses. Coach wanted me to run on someone's shoulder and outsprint them so that I would feel fresh for Bob Firman. Kyler and I wheeled the course to see how far it was.  I think some of the many rocks and bumps may have made it longer it really was, but still .14 long is long so that was our warm up. I ran on someones shoulder up until the mile marker, then I ran with them, but not behind them (JD and Isaac from MC).  At about the two mile marker I made a move away from JD and he fell off pace pretty hard. I ran for little bit more, and then after a quarter mile, maybe a little more, coach told me to take it easier, hold back a little.  After that I just tried to keep JD away from me.  I had about 20-25 seconds on him.  I ran the rest at a pretty good pace, but slower than what we were running before.  He gained some time on me at the end. After a little over a mile of cool down.  Our team did good, our 4th and 5th guys are injured and we took 2nd still, but there's room for improvement. On our girl's side we took 2nd to MC with our 1st runner injured, and another one of our top 5 being gone.
