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.

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.

      I'm trying to take it easy as possible for my calf, and it sucks!  I want to run hard.

       Early morning run.  I tried to take it hard.  I didn't know what pace. I didn't want to push myself too hard if my calf hurt.

      Was at my high adventure in Moab.  Went for a 32 minute run, pushing it, going everywhere, I'm guessing it was 5 miles. 

     Later we went on a 4.5 mile hike and a 4 mile "bike ride" which was more like pushing your bike through the sand of the trail for half and riding for the other half.

       Went for another bike ride, but didn't want to bike (sadly because I thought it was too hard), so about a quarter mile out, I dropped my bike and ran the trail with everyone else.  It was more of a interval workout, sprinting on the uphill, and resting after.  (2.5 miles)

      Another trail I ran on, the leader told me to just go and run and follow the line of the trail.  I still stopped a few times due to fact that I got lost and I didn't know where to go.  (4 miles)

     Later we went on a hike for about 3 miles or so.

     AM- Was going to have an easy day, so went two easy miles with Dante, one of my friends at the high adventure.

     PM(9:30)- Didn't feel like going to bed and I really wanted to break in my new running shoes, so I went for 5 miles at tempo pace.  My stomache felt terrible for the first 4 miles, and the last mile my calf hurt for the start of it.  Not my favorite run, but it still felt good to go running, even if my stomache hurt.
