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/meet-5.5 We had our meet today to see who is on varsity and what times we have at the start of the season.  Kyler asked if I'd pace him for a 16:45, and I agreed.  We did our first 400 in 1:12, and that was too fast and I think it took a bit too much out of him for the first part.  After that I slowed down to pace him better, but he still looked to be moving at a good pace.  At the mile we were 5:25, and Tyson went from 3 seconds behind to running with me.  We hit the canal for the second time and Kyler fell off pace.  At mile 2 we were 11:00 (5:35 for this mile) and Tyson was starting to slow a little.  I then decided to push the last bit when we hit the canal the third time.  I hit the track for the last time and timed my last 300m.  I ended up being 47 for it, so I'm pretty happy about that.  Tyson was 17:07, so it was a good day for him.  No one really had the race they were hoping for, but it was still good to have a meet to see where we're at before Highland. 

    PM-5 easy miles.  My iPod ran out of battery halfway through.  I didn't feel as fresh as I did this morning.

      AM- 5 easy miles.  Tried to break in my new spikes I got from Foot Locker. I didn't like them too much, but I didn't like the matumbos at first either.  

      PM- 5 easy miles in the heat.  I wanted to do a work out today, but my left hamstring felt funny when I woke up today.  It hurt a little when I sped up on this run.

       XC- 8X1000m at I pace.  Coach said they might 15 to 20 seconds slow because they were on grass and dirt and had a net uphill.  Coach said they should feel how we do them on the track.  3 min. easy jog recovery.  Splits (approximately): 3:05, 2:57, 2:59, 3:00, 2:59, 3:02, 3:04, 2:59. I waited for 20 seconds on every repeat, and then would try to catch Tyson.  I would catch him usually on the canal.  My quads and calves burned during this workout, but I was able to hit a good time consistently.

      PM-4 easy miles.

       XC- Today we did a mile warm up, then tempo miles.  3 miles tempo, 3 min. break, 2 miles tempo, 2 minutes break, then 1 mile tempo.  I was tired from yesterday's run, and thought today was going to be an easy tempo intervals, but it wasn't.   I ran my first 3 miles at 5:15 pace, unless you count my small break from having to tie my shoe. Alex was pacing my on his bike because of his injury, and that helped out.  My next two miles were 5:18 pace, and then my last mile I finished in 4:51.  Cool down afterward.

       A few of us met up with Storrs and went and run up to flat top.  5 miles up.  We gained 4000 feet.  We had to walk a bunch of the way up because of how steep it was at some parts and how many trees and bushes surrounded the trail.  5 miles down back down after.
