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.

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.

5 miles tempo.  5:33 mile pace.  First mile was pretty fast.  It was kinda a tough run for me, but I'm happy I got a good push in it.  3 miles cool down after, 2 of them were with Claire.

About 8.5 miles.  Ran up Birch Canyon to the 3rd gate through Smithfield Canyon.  I was going time it, but my calves were super tired, so I just kinda went off feel and distance. I think yesterday's run took more out of me than I expected.

10 miles up Smithfield Canyon.  I still felt a bit sore in my calves.  First 5 miles were about 34 minutes, next 5 were just over 30.  I felt alright, hoping tomorrow I'll feel better.

Drove to the USU cross country course and ran there.  Ran from my dad's work there, then did the 5k loop twice and then did 2 more miles before heading back.  I did a 5 min. pick up in there as well.

Fun run today.  I met a couple of the Utah State runners yesterday on the run and they invited me to do a long run with them today.  We went up Logan Canyon and ran a trail near Beaver Mountain.  It was a pretty easy pace, but I think there is a small knot in my right calf.  I turned around before the group and ran the second half alone.
