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-10 easy miles. 

PM-8 miles.  I ran over to Intramural Field to run with Aaron, then Clayton and Milly came, so we did a lap with them, but everything ended up being longer than I thought, so it ended up being 8 miles.  I'm fine with that.

AM-10.90 miles on the Bonnville Shoreline Trail. This run is always tough for me, but I kow it's great for summer mileage. 

PM-5.4 miles.  I ran with Talem and Will, and we saw Brandon, one of our throwers, practicing for the hammer.

AM-10 miles at Fire Road.  Definitely wasn't good for my achilles that first mile.  It was a good run though.  We talked about the regional steeplechase in 2018 and we all remembered it differently.  

PM-5.1 miles, mostly grass loops.  It was hot.

AM-Long run. I ran with Clayson on the other Bonneville Shoreline Trail.  Today was pretty tough after a couple miles  We started at 7:00 AM, but it still felt really hot.  I definitly didn't hydrate enough leading up to this run.
