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.

Short-Term Running Goals:

Become an all-american in cross country and track.

Long-Term Running Goals:

Make sure I have fun, not get burned out, and get faster.

Eventually get the school records in the 5km and 10km.  


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-4.2 easy miles with Michael. 

PM-10x1000m at intramural field.  Went off watches instead of the wheel this time, so times are a bit faster.  We went 3:02 on the first two, had a few 2:57s, then coach told Jared that he is building his base for the marathon while we were recovering from a race.  So then he dropped the hammer and we were told to make sur ewe recover and not go with him.  We had some around 2:55-59 for the next few, then our last two were 2:51s.

Long run today. It was pretty windy, and was a pain for the first 9 miles, but made the next 9 not too bad.
