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.

felt good. Slow pace, but there were some tough short inclines and declines.

Mile repeats. Warmed up 3 miles, ran with the team for 3 of them. 5:01, 4:49, 4:54. The first one felt super easy. The third one was pretty brutal, and Coach had me just run with them for the first 800 of the next one, then I was done. We ran at K park. Cool down after, then I ran in the late evening on my own for about 3 miles.

 10 easy miles with a part of the group. The heat made the run feel long.

Today was tough. We ran up hobble creek canyon for 8.2 miles, speeding up every 15 minutes. The first 15 were at 6:00 pace, then the next 15 min were 5:30 effort(probably 5:40 or slower pace. It was a lot of uphill!) then we went to the finish at tempo pace/effort. It was tough for the first 15 for me, people were talking, but I was just feeling the hills out. The next 15 felt good. I actually felt hungry, I need to learn how to find time to eat with classes, studying and running taking up all my time( and the blog post when I have a few minutes). The last bit was tough. I wanted to give in at 40 minutes, but then told myself to make it the full 45, but then learned that it was 8 miles. Then painfully learned it was 8.2 miles. 47:19 overall, so that was good. I've felt a bit sick since ending this run. 2 miles of cool down, then weights.

5 miles in the morning before class.

8 miles pretty easy after class. It started to rain quite a bit during the run, and a group of us on the trail had it kinda bad with the wind.  It got better later on during the run.

LONG run.  Today I could definately feel tired from the previous days this week.  I've been getting good sleep, but school and running seem to take most of my time recently, so it's been a bit tough.  The run went well though, I went 15 miles, and we started slower than usual(7:40 for the first mile), but then sped it up after.  We got it down to 49 minutes for our first 7.5 miles, then a group of us turned around.  I don't think one of the guys heard how we were supposed to take it easier in preparation for the workouts and race next week, so instead we ended our lst 7.5 miles in 43 minutes.  I think our last mile was at 5:29.  I'm ready for tomorrow's off day. 

Also, now this is my highlest mileage week ever, so I think that's pretty neat.
