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- Most of the people I run with on the XC team are taking a week off so they feel great during the season, so I was running alone for most of this run.  During the first mile I pushed it to catch up to Dylan.  I stayed with him during the next 3.  He was going slower because of his knee, but he would increase his pace a bit whenever his knee felt better.  When we hit the turn around point I told them I was going to push til the end and ended up running the rest a bit slower than I wanted and also by myself.  alright tempo run.

      I went on a five mile tempo run up the canyon with a mile cool down afterward.  I got a PR on my last mile.  I averaged a 5:25 pace, which either I haven't done or haven't done in a long time.  I felt pretty good during it.

      Coach said to take a short mental break before the season so I wasn't going to run, but I just didn't have anything to do this morning when everyone else was asleep.  I went for a mile, then went 3.5 miles with my sister.

     XC- I went to XC feeling pretty ready for a hard hill workout or something like that.  Instead it was an easy tempo 5 mile run.  Most of the guys are still taking the week off.  I ran with Dylan and pushed him for 2 or 3 miles.  He said his knee is alright today, hopefully it stays that way.

       I went for a 8 mile tempo run.  My goal was to get under a 47, because I didn't feel 100% and I still felt like a tempo run.  My goals to pace myself were to run my first mile in the low 5's.  I ran it around a 5:01.  My next goal was to run just under a 6 min. mile so my last mile could be a 7 min. and I would end up at 47.  Well I ran up the canyon a but slower then I wanted, but I pushed the downhill and ended up running a 40 min. 7 mile.  I pushed the last mile and had a 6 min. mile so beat my goal by a minute.  1 mile cool down
