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-10.4 miles with Weaver, Clayton, and Machlin. 

PM-5 miles and then strides on the track. Didn't feel super smooth early on, but after a few I felt better.

Long run.  20 miles at Murdock, ran the majority of the run with Weaver and Milly, due to having to run farther.  Milly was going 25 and had a pickup to run, but he ran with whole 20 with me before continuing on his own.  At 20 miles, I'm pretty beat, I don't know if I could run the next 5 with a tempo at the end.
