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.

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.

Race: Quad meet at Box Elder (3.107 Miles) 00:16:04, Place overall: 1, Place in age division: 1
Total Distance

     We ran most of the course but the last small loop for a warm up.  Claire ran way too hard the first and was ahead of Sarah Feeny and the Box Elder girl the first two thirds mile or so.  She had a pretty good race though, but got passed by two Ogden girls in the last 300m, so if she can close that gap she's going to kick trash at region.  We stretched and did accelerations after cheering the girls on.  (Box Elder, Bonneville, and Ogden all came to this meet.)

    Race: I got a terrible start.  Sad I can't even get a good one at a small meet.  I was in first by the first 500m though.  Mike Buckly(he ran hard yesterday, so for him running this fast today he did great) ran with me pretty much the whole race. After the first mile I decided to start pushing the pace a lot more, but Mike hung on. On the last mile I made a move, and dropped him a little, but just kept the same distance between. I ran 34 seconds faster than a few weeks ago, so that was a plus, but today I was supposed to push it more.  I was really inconsistent on my pace, and jumped around a lot.  I NEED to stop doing that and just commit to racing the whole thing.

     Around a mile and a half cool down, possibly a little more, then 3 miles when I got home.  First two were just under 12 minutes, and that felt like a good pace.
