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.

     Ran with the XC team.   Ran with Dylan for most of it.  He pushed me a ton.  I'm glad I ran with him because I didn't know the course.  We also ran an extra mile to a place I have only been to a very few times.  Later we ran 400 meters for a sprint.  I felt great during it, and got a time that I didn't think I could get...

    I was going to take it easy, and start running 5 days a week now.  Forgot I was taking it easy after the first half mile and just ran it as fast as I usually run my runs.

     Ran with the XC team.  Just ran with a bunch of different people.  Slower, so it felt good.

     Did a quarter mile swimming with only legs.  I wasn't going to do any workouts today, but thought I should do some cross training.

     XC- Ran from SV to this hilly trail. Ran up to the turn around spot twice from the start of it.  Ran for a little up another little trail after that, Then ran back to Sky View.  I'm just guessing with the distance.

     Ran up the canyon.  Had water at mile 5. Went slower than I wanted to go, probably because I ran yesterday.  I'm just getting ready for the 15k on the 4th of July.  I feel ready for it, but I don't know if I'll get the time I would like to get.
