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.

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.

AM-4 easy miles

PM-4xmile with 400 jog recovery in between. It was pretty tough. The first one I just tried to stay by Clayson and Danny and we hit 4:27. The second one felt easier, and I hit 4:26. Third one felt good for the first 800 then my legs hurt. I decided to dig a bit and take a chance to stay consistent instead of playing it safe for the last one. 4:26 again. The last one after 800m the group started gapping me and I just couldn’t get my legs moving. 4:32 with the last lap in 70. I’m happy with the workout. It was good enough weather to run on the outdoor track. I’m pretty tired now.

Long run up at deer creek. I woke up late, so I drove up separate and ran on my own.
