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.

Eventually get the 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-13.25 with Jacklin.  Eventually Aidan Carlsen joined us too.  His GPS watch was off, it had us at 14 miles, but I don't see it being any longer than 13.5.  Great run.  

PM-4 miles with strides.

AM- About a 3 mile warm up, 5 mile tempo in 25:06, 3 mile cool down. First workout back is always hard.  Today wasn't as bad as I was expecting, but it did hurt.  My GPS watch is usually pretty accurate on Lake Loop, contrary to what my teammates say, but today it was pretty far off.  This led me to pushing the pace more than I should have, because I thought I was running slower.  Ran most of it with Zac Jacklin, then sped up a bit.  

PM-5 miles with Marcus, Clayton, and Michael. What a great group to be running with.
