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-12 miles with some of guys. 

PM-5.75 miles.  Was planning on doing strides on the grass loops near the track, but as soon as I started one I got yelled at because they are keeping some of the fireworks for the 4th on the grass.  I was a bit annoyed, but then did my strides on the track.

Long run at Spanish fork canyon. It got very hot and after about 12 miles the heat started beating me. At 14 and after all I could think of was the water in the car at the end. After I drank 2 liters of water.
