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.

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.

It looked sunny outside, but I didn't want to be fooled, so when I went outside to go running I was expecting a cooled breeze of air to hit my face as I opened the door. It turned out that instead I felt the nice heat of the sun instead. I went back inside and took off gloves, hat, and running tites. It was actually just a really good run, with no complaints. Really liked the canyon, tried to run to a car (which happened from 20 yards away) and then TRIED to stay with it (that only happened for 50 yards, til I got tired of sprinting my butt off and realized I had 2 miles left to run). Just had a good time. Not too cold and not too hot.

Conner Mantz.

I  ran 4 slow treacherous miles. I felt terrible the whole time. My stomach hurt sooo much. I had a banana 30 min. before and it ruined my whole run. I felt like stopping at 2 and a half miles, but then I just went slower so I could say that I didn't stop the whole time even though I felt like crap.

I was a little mad about not being able to run on thursday (due to soccer practice/guitar/homework. At soccer I ran my butt off to mainly to help) so today when I didn't feel 100% I still ran as hard as I could without pushing it too hard. It was a good run up smithfield canyon. I felt pretty good except for my calfs felt a little hurt. Hopefully in a week I can run better than I did today, because next week is my first race of the year. I'm really excited.
