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-6.2 easy miles with Jake and Michael.

PM-13.6 miles with strides. Coach follows us on a sketchy bike that didn’t have brakes, but he was fine.

AM-6 miles with Josh, Jake, and Michael.

PM-hobble creek. Progressive run up a canyon that’s around 8.3 miles. Kramer and I ran it in 44:51, which is quite a bit quicker than I’ve ever run, so it was a great workout.

AM-9.7 miles about. Ran from my apartment, saw Luke just after halfway and ran with him to the fieldhouse.

PM-8 miles with strides. Felt pretty good for the first 7, then some pain from a blister/callus. It’s all good though.

AM-5.2 miles with Jake, Talem, and Michael.

PM-Michigan today. It was hot and windy, but I think Coach gave us more rest than usual, so it wasn’t terrible. Went 4:28(track), 4:50(grass), 3:19(t), 4:48(g), 2:11(t), 4:46(g), 60(t), 4:42(g). I felt pretty good after the first grass mile. Lots of switching of who was leading between Jared, Milly, and Clayton. All of them were coming off hard Tuesday workouts and/or races from the weekend, so I led a bit more than usual. Jared always seemed to be holding back, but I guess that’s what you can do when you were 6th in the last Olympic Games.

Long beautiful trail run. Mostly with Kramer and Adam wood. I felt pretty tired, so I stopped just after 19 instead of going the full 20.
