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.

     XC- 5.5 at a pretty easy pace. Golf Course Extended.  Our pace was around high 6's low 7's.  I'm going to try and hold myself back this week and see how I feel after.  I feel like I am getting burned out, and need an easy week.  The last time I had an off week or week I wasn't training specifically for a race was at the start of January when I got my wisdom teeth out.  

    A little more than 1.5 easy later.

    5 mile tempo.  I did my regular Smithfield Canyon there-and-back route.  I felt great for the start, but then started hurting a bunch during my fourth and fifth miles.  Splits: 4:52 (downhill) 5:42(uphill) 5:21(uphill, then downhill)  5:10(downhill.  opposite of mile 2)  5:43 (uphill.  opposite of mile 1).  My AP was 5:21.7, and I think this is the fastest I've ever ran this route.  2 miles cool down afterward.

      6 easy miles at around 7:10 AP.  I could feel yesterday's run and I was sore.

5 mile tempo run up the canyon.  I felt a lot better than I thought I was going to.  I'll get splits and the AP later, but the 5 miles were 27:45.  2 miles cool down.

      4 easy miles today.  Tomorrow I think I'll try a long tempo run.

      8 miles tempo Smithfield Canyon run in 45 minutes and 1 second.  My goal was sub-45, and I just bearly missed it.   My miles times were all over the place.  I'll post those later.  My hips were hurting on the uphill, and my knees were hurting on the downhill.  Not much on either one, but just enough to make it uncomfortable.  1 mile cool down.
