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.

AM-3.1 alone. It hurt. I had visited the doctor and he just said I would be recovering soon, but it would take close to two weeks.

PM-4 miles with Milly and Talem.

AM-11 miles with James Withers from USU. I’m not sure what it was about this run, but it was great. I had some chest pain for the first 3 miles and then it became minimal. James said he has had a similar thing and that whenever he would run, it would take about 3 miles until the pain would stop. I had planned to do 6-8, but we just got talking and before I knew it, we were already at 7 miles and 4 miles away from our cars. 

PM-5.25 miles. Same as James said, a little over 3 miles with chest pain, but it went away after. Ethan Field rode his bike by me for the run too, so that was nice

PM-9.2 miles. There is still a decent amount of pain in my chest and sides. Felt good from 4 miles until 8 miles. Hopefully I can run a long run tomorrow, but I’ll see how I feel in the morning

AM-Long Run. Due to muscle soreness and chest pain, I told myself to go 12 at most. Last 6 miles were with the Stanford twins.
