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-13 miles total.  Progressive power run.  Mile warm up, then 5:56, 5:36, 5:25, 5:14, 5:12, 4:59, 4:55, 4:46, 4:55.  3 miles easy back. The team was pretty together for most of it, then the last 4 miles, Jared, Milly, and I started speeding things up.  2nd to last mile Jared put the burners on.  Last mile I fell off, but I told myself to just make sure I ran 5:00 or faster.  Great workout.

PM-5 easy miles with Danny.

Long run from Matt’s house. I didn’t feel too good. I was pretty tired even though I fell asleep at 9 last night. I think it’s just been a tough week with finals, mileage, and everything else that’s going on.
