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.

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.

     Ran the canyon.  Felt better than usual before a run.  It was a pretty warm day, 40 degrees, so not to bad, and I didn't have to run in tights or two shirts.  I went out the first mile feeling good.  I didn't feel like timing it at first, but I did it anyway and am happy I did.  I ran pretty hard, for a training run, and felt great.  My time for the five miles was 27:30.  I am kinda surprised because, while I pushed it everywhere, I still didn't feel like I was going this fast.  My last mile with the uphill was still a sub-6, which I rarely do.

    Not fast, not slow.  Averaged a 6-minute mile.  Not too hard, especially for 3 miles.

     Ran with some guys from XC.  Pretty slow, and nice.

     Was trying to go for a long run.  Felt kinda sick today, so wasn't at the pace I wanted, but I got it done.

      Wasn't feeling to good again, so I didn't run yesterday.  Today was better than yeterday, so I went on a run.  Not too slow, but not fast yet.  Hopefully Monday will be better.
