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.

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.

        XC- Sunnyside extended.  We went on a tempo run for two miles of the 7.   Tyler came and made us really push it a bit more.  I didn't feel as good as I usually do on Monday mornings.   Also we found out when our first XC meet is, so that is pretty exciting.

      Hard 4-mile tempo.  Before it I wasn't feeling like running that much, but during I felt good.  I average a 5:24 pace, except it was an average of downhill.  I was going to go 5, but I pushed my 3rd and 4th mile too much too go hard on the hill.   2 easy miles after.

       XC- I was hoping for an easy day, but it was quite the opposite.  We did a .75 mile warm up, and then sat and listened to the workout/lecture for a 10 minutes, which wasn't the best idea.  We then got up and did 70m sprints.  I ran these with Steve Scott the whole time and I never beat him.  We did 6 of them witha 130m cool down and then an extra lap. Then we did 4X400m timed, with 400 cool down.  I wasn't feelng too bad during these, except for the last one.   I ran these at 61, 63(got boxed in during this one) 57(Tyson almost passed me in this one.)  61(I just felt like crap during this one)  We then did an extra lap for cool down after out first cool down lap.  We did some stretches and core workouts.  When I got home I did an extra lap after drinking about a gallon of water and eating some food.  This mile gave me a sideache, but I needed the extra mile.

      6 easy. Just for some miles.  I could still feel the workouts from the past few days.

      I was going to do some sprints today, but didn't have a lot of time.  I missed practice, so I had to come up with my own workout.  So I did the usual 5 mile tempo run.  I ran it in 28:05, so not my fastest, but still surprising with how much I've been running this week.  My second mile was my slowest, which is surprising becuase my 5th has an uphill that goes up about 100 feet, maybe more for the first quarter of it.  I felt pretty good, but not the best.

       8 miles easy.  I felt pretty good during them.   Went a bit faster then I probably should have for the easy miles.  After I waited and later watched the 10,000m.  Great day.
