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- There were a few inches of rain on the road, so that was kinda a hint that we weren't going to run for a bit.  We played tag inside a gym for a while, which I'm counting as 1.5 miles.  After a while when we thought the rain was done and we ran. after about 2 or 3 minutes it started raining hard again. I ran with Dylan and he pushed me a ton.

    XC-This was probably the hardest run I've done with the team.  We first jogged to Mack Park, which wasn't bad one bit.  After Coach Wright explained to us the run.  We sprinted up Beauty, went slow down Beast, Sprinted up Beast went down Beauty. The first time we did that it was not that hard, but after that, It was terrible.  The beast is a long hill, and the beauty is a smaller hill.  We did that 5 times then jogged back to SV.  I was thinking about running twice today, but after Beast, I didn't want to.

      XC-  Scavenger hunt first, which was probably one mile. Then another mile of sprints on the track.

     Ran by myself up the canyon. I tried to push it hard, but I didn't feel like I could. Had a good run though.
