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.

     XC-7.5.  We did a mile warm up, then a 5 mile tempo, with a 30 sec. sprint after every mile, then back to tempo.  My sprints were better then usual today.  I ran with Nick and Steve til the turn around point.  After about a mile from there, Kyler decided to increase the pace, so I ran with him for a mile, then ran by myself.  I'm really pleased with my sprints though, a lot faster then regular.  Now time to ease up for Wednesday.

     Small warm up, then some strides with short steps.  I felt good.  Getting ready for Cache-Box tomorrow.

      I am not happy with this race, but it'll give me a reason to run faster at region.  I had a a small stomache ache before, and then had one during some of the race. We started out and I just got behind Adam and Jerrell.  After a half mile, I was running behind Jerrell, and Adam was right behind us. I felt alright the first mile, but it felt fast.  I don't have the time exactly, but I think they said around a 4:49.  After that, it went downhill for me.  I kept running with him 'til a little before mile 2.  I just wasn't feeling it.  I couldn't run faster.  This stresses me out more than anything thinking of it.  We hit gravel right before mile two, and I just couldn't get going.  I had a bit of a stomache ache, but I should've just tried to catch him then.  Once we were 3/4 miles out he really left me in the dust.  I couldn't catch him at all.  At a turn, I just lightly jogged the turn, and it took me a while to start up again (this happened throughout the race.  Jerrell had a lot of good turns, and I would always try to catch him on the straightways.).  I just tried not to have him be 20 sec. ahead of me.  I tried to push it at the end, but I felt terrible.  I had a bad stomache ache afterward.  I will not have chinese food 'til state is over.  I finished around 15:18.  Jerrell ran a 14:59.  Atleast there is still region and state.

I wasn't feeling the best today, or atleast mentally. I was a bit mad about yesterday's run, but I've made a goal to break 15 at the region meet(same course). I decided to try to run by myself and recover mentally and just run. It felt good, but later I ran with coach and a few guys and I think it felt better running with them instead. Coach told me I had a good race. Jerrell had a great race, and that was just that.

    I don't actually know the distance of the run today, but it's atleast 5.  We did terrible triangles.  Three sprints with a relay team.  I didn't feel that great during the run.  I don't think I was running as fast as I could've if I would've felt relatively okay.  Long cool down.

     Medium pace.  I pushed it at some parts.  It felt alright, not the best, but better then yesterday, mainly because it was slower.
