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.

      Did a run that was supposed to help us finish strong.  I don't know if this was going to help or hurt us for tomorrow, but it'll probably help us.  The the coaches know better then I do. :-)

        We did some stretching, got ready for the race, watched the girls start.  The MC girls won, I think, but our team still did great. 

        When we started I didn't want to get trapped like last week so I went out pretty hard at the first.  Tyler and a few other guys gave me some tips before the meet, which helped me out.  I got about 10 seconds ahead of Tyler and Dylan over the first mile, but they stayed the same distance the whole race.  I liked the course, a lot more than Bonneville, and they had a gator ahead of us to keep us from getting lost. 

        I didn't feel I pushed a ton, but more of just enough to keep me feeling good and keep me going fast.  At the finish I went hard and pushed it with the energy I still had.  I thought Tyler or maybe Dylan would pass me at the end, but I had a good last 400 m which went really well, so they may have gained time on me, but hey, they are on my team.  Everyone did really great not just SV, but also MC. I saw a bunch of people I had met before that ran for MC.  We won, by a good ways, but the MC team put in some good runs also. 

        The temperature was a little cooler - 82 degrees.

       XC- Did a run where we ran race pace, then race pace plus, then cool down.  I don't know the exact distance.  We did it about 5 times, then the freshmen left early to catch the bus.

     XC-  Ran to Aggie Ice Cream.  YUM!  It was at a comfy pace.  The freshmen got there late due to the busses.
