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.

Long-Term Running Goals:

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

School records in the 5km and 10km.  


Served a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints from July 2015-July 2017.  I gained 30 lbs. during the service and came back out of shape; however I knew that if the Lord wanted me to once again run competitively, he would bless me to return to fitness. 

I graduated from Sky View High School in Smithfield, Utah. I currently run for Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah.

AM-5.2 miles with Michael.

PM-2 mile tempo at Intramural field.  Different GPS watches had us at different distances, so we did 4 loops and then called it.  GPS watches ranged from 9:26-46.  Felt relaxed.  Then we did 10 minutes of 30 seconds at 3k pace, 30 seconds "jog".  This was different than any workout I had run for a long time and I was a bit nervous because 3k pace is fast, and trying to run that on the grass with tight turns is painful, but it felt pretty good for the first 5 minutes and then I just took it one at a time.  We did a little over 2 miles during this time.  Cool down after.

PM- (mile, 800, 400) x2 at 4:30, 2:10, 62, 4:26, 2:08/09, 58.  Equal recovery.  Felt a bit hard early on, but as the repeats went on I felt better.  It was pretty windy, but luckily we didn't get the majority of the storm.
