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.

AM-13 easy miles up at Deer Creek.

PM-5 easy miles with Alex to the river trail.  Feeling good.  School starts tomorrow, so I'm a bit nervous for that.  These past couple weeks of not taking classes have been nice.

AM-4.1 easy miles. 

PM-5xmile on Kiwanis Park, 3 minutes recovery. I felt pretty good the first two, which were 5:00. The third one was around 4:58, but felt a bit harder. The fourth one was good and we were around 4:54. The last one felt good until the last 200m or so. 4:52. The park is a bit hilly and the turns are fairly abrupt, so I felt like this was a great workout. Weights after.

PM- hobble creek workout. 6 man governor plus Jared Ward. It was really hot, however I believe I had a great workout. Stomach was in pain afterwards. Not as fast as last time, but last time had a lot better weather.

Long run. We ran on a beautiful trail from squaw peak to hobble creek canyon. The leaves just started changing colors and the views were amazing. Afterward I was exhausted, but my legs felt great on the run.
