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-10 miles.  Lots of foot pain, which makes me a bit worried.  Due to having a test today, I didn't ahve time to stop by the trainer, so I'll have to do that tomorrow. 

PM-4.5 miles of grass loops.

AM-Had a light tempo workout today. It was 5 miles out on lakeloop.  We kept the first few miles around 5:15, then brought it down to 5:10, 5:06 and 5:03 or something like that.  Most of the guys are starting workouts later this year, so I ran it with Kramer.  My body was pretty sore from weight workout, so this was actually harder than I would've thought. Foot hurt a bit the first few miles, but then the pain dulled.  The trainer said it will hurt and take time to recover, but that there weren't be any long injury to come from it.  

PM-5 easy miles.

Long run today.   We were pretty consistent on most of the miles, running right between 5:58-6:02 for most of the run.  Dallin and Michael sped it up at miles 10 or 11.  We ran a few around 5:30. I knew I had to run near 18 miles to get to 90 miles for the week, but I was alone for the last mile or so, and went off time for that part.  When I got back to the car I knew I was a bit short of 18, and I felt alright about stopping there.
