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.

      Coach recommended taking some time off to mentally and physically get ready for the season and the hard workouts to come.

      PM- After taking 96 hours off, I thought I could finally get back to running.  I felt great the first mile, but then my stomach just felt terrible.  I had eaten too much salt and fat in the last few hours before the run.  It was going to be easy, so I thought the 6 miles would go well.

       AM-5 mile tempo run.  Averaged around a 5:21.2 pace. Probably my fastest time on that course.  3.25 miles cool down.  It hurt, but it also felt good to go fast, especially after I was done going up the canyon and started to go down it.  Splits: 5:01.3 (downhill), 5:40.3 (uphill), 5:17.4 (uphill, then downhill.  I felt really good on the uphill for this mile.), 5:10,4 (downhill), 5:36.5 (uphill).  I'm finally getting better at running those uphill miles. 

       PM- 3.1 miles easy.  It felt good.

      XC- 7.5.  We were going tempo today, but since I went tempo yesterday I decided to just run with Tyson today and see how well I could keep up.  He went out pretty fast before we settled into the pace he needed to hit.  We never saw any of the mile markers, but we went tempo for atleast 3.5 miles. 

     PM- 4.25 easy, sweaty, and hot miles.  I didn't feel too great the first two miles, but my last 2 felt great.

      AM-12 Long run today.  I ran up the canyon today.  At about mile 3.5 I saw Coach Storrs and ran with him and his training friend.  He turned around about a third of a mile before me, and then I sped up a bit so I could run with him on the way down.  He stopped and was talking to the Preston coach so I caught up after a mile of turning back.  I felt a lot better then I thought I was going to on this run.  Maybe I'll run tonight too.

    PM-Decided not to do the run and instead went on a long hike with my little brother.
