Running Accomplishments:

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.

Long-Term Running Goals:

Make sure I have fun, not get burned out, and get faster.

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.

PM-6 miles with Michael.

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.
