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.

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 and came back out of shape. I graduated from Sky View High School in Smithfield, Utah. I currently run for Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah.
PM-11 miles. Warm up, then 5 mile tempo. Not sure on all our mile splits, but we were something like 4:57 for the first and then 3 and 4 were 4:45ish. I wasn’t too far behind the front group. I ran 24:13 overall, so I’m pretty happy about it. Cool down then weights, then some studying. Lots of studying.
Looks like winter finally decided to come. Today was pretty wet and snowy. I felt super cold and just not into it. During the run Adam got covered by snow when a snow plow came by on the way back, but he kept a good attitude. About half the team did the run pretty quick. I was with the other half that took it slower.
