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.

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-medium long run up at deer creek. A bit of foot pain, but considerably better than last week. I felt really good. I went to bed pretty early on the weekend and that helped. Weights after felt really good.
Long run up Provo canyon from the base. Lots of elevation gain, especially from miles 6 to 9. Averaged 5:55 mile pace. Felt great early on, but as soon as we started going downhill, I started feeling tired. We saw Matt Owens at the end and it was nice to see him again, he sounds like he is getting healthy again.
