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.

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 went to BYU cross country camp from Monday to Thursday and then my school cross country from Thursday to Saturday.

    2.5 miles tempo with warm up and cool down.  I was able to run with Ryan Waite for it, and that was pretty fun.  Averaged somewhere in the 5:20s pace, so slower then I should've been, but still a good run.  Later I ran a few miles on the track.  My calf hurt a little.

      4 easy miles in the morning in Provo. 

      5 miles with a fartlek workout in there.  Warm up, then 5, 3, 2, 1.  All on grass, and my calf felt great, but it was still a hard run because it was very hot.  Over 100.   Really fun to run with some of these fast BYU guys.  Tyler Thatcher  and Ryan Waite.

      I got to the morning trail run on the "Y" late. Around 3.5 miles. 

     We went and ran to some waterfalls, and that was pretty fun.  A little over 4 miles.  I was able to talk/run with Ian Hunter on this run.

Race: BYU Cross Country Camp 2 mile (2 Miles) 00:10:12, Place overall: 1, Place in age division: 1

      Fun race.  It was 4 loops around the camp area, and it was 2 miles (maybe more) and I planned on just running with everyone and out sprinting them, but Steve Flint ran the first lap with us, and he took it out pretty fast.  2:27 for the first 800m and on long grass for part of it, and it hurt.  People stayed pretty close behind me until the last 2 laps.  Good effort, but not a good time for how it felt.

      6.75 with the cross country team on a trail in Nephi, and it hurt.  Our first 2 miles were around 12 min. mile pace, and that was pushing it. 

     2.5 with team.  It was pretty easy.  Kyler, Alex, and I dropped our shirts, so we had to run a little more than everyone else.

      We did a local "5k"at the end of the camp.  At the start some kid sprinted the first quarter mile, but then fell off the pace.  I ran with Kyler and Tyson for the first 2 miles, then ran with Kyler until we had about a quarter mile left, and I threw in a big push.  Our team took the top 5 spots, and 4 out of the top 5 on the girls side too.  It was pretty fun.

     PM- 3 and a little when I got home.  I finally started using my new shoes again, and my feet felt better then usual.
