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.

6 miles.  35 minutes.  First run over 3.5 miles in the past two years that had a sub-6 minute pace.  Legs surprisingly felt alright.  Breathing was another issue.  Kinda got competitive on the pace early on.

40 minutes for the 6.5, then 4 strides.  It felt alright.  I felt like my first half mile was slow, so I sped it up, and it ended up being a lot more of a speed up then I thought.

I decided to try and make more of my running not on the road.  I went up Birch Canyon.  I wore a GPS watch, but it wasn't sufficiently charged, so it died partway.  My average up the canyon was around 7:00 pace and my pace on the way down was about 5:50.

Started out a bit quick, so I changed to make today to a harder day.  Out and back up the canyon.  The first 6 were fast, then I did .5 cool down with 4 strides at the end. Splits: 5:27, 6:14, 6:11, 5:31, 5:52, 5:56.

8.25 miles in about 50 minutes.  6:03 pace.  I felt pretty tired from mile 3 to the end.  I think my legs were pretty beat from the previous days.  It's been a good week looking back on it.
