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.

Personal:

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 miles. 

PM-12.4 miles total. 12 easy, then some strides with McMillan. I felt great during the run.  That is until I got tackled in the snow. Then I was a bit cold.  During the strides I felt pretty tight, which was weird, becuase those 12 miles felt pretty easy.

AM-4 easy miles with Kramer.  Felt pretty stiff.

PM-Mile repeats on the indoor track(too much snow on the outdoor track).  A few of the guys did them earlier, so our front group was a bit small.  We went about 4:31, 4:31, 4:28, 4:24.  On the last one McMillan started pretty quick, and then 800m in I decided to help him keep that fast pace, so I took the lead.  I felt pretty good, it was a bit slower than when we did it outdoors.

16 miles for the long run. I felt really good until the last two miles, but still held strong and had fun. I’ve been a bit annoyed with long runs because I’ve had to be careful not going too hard before a race.  So today I didn’t kill myself, but I didn’t hold myself back. There was a good group that went quick earlier on; however the last 7 miles were just Clayson, Matt and I. Splits were 6:17, 6:00, 5:56, 5:41, 5:35, 5:37, 5:36, 5:45, 5:28, 5:21, 5:29, 5:22, 5:15, 5:20, 5:12, 5:23.  5:35 average. After we had breakfast at Matt’s home. 

1.5 miles as part of the study.
