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- I did part of the mile breakdown.  I ran 1200, 1000, 800, 600, 400.  Times were 3:16, 2:42, 2:09, 1:34, and 60.  It felt good, a lot better than it did a few weeks ago.  I felt smooth.

PM-6 easy miles.

well, at least I’m consistent. Felt a lot better during the race than Iowa, but just didn’t get into it and hurt. Fairly disappointed in myself, but I’m trying to keep my head up high. 3km tomorrow.
