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.

      Since you aren't to run a workout with the team when you're on a visit and I didn't have a watch, I ran Elijah's workout with him.  4 miles tempo, then 2X800m at I pace with 2 min. recovery in between the 800s.  I felt awful during the tempo, but pretty good during the 800s.  We went out really slow for the first two miles, but our last two had a sub-5 average. We averaged a 5:09ish pace overall.  Coach usually wants me to be sub-5, so it was a little disappointing to hurt that much, but it's okay.  The 800s were good both were right on at 2:14. Cool down and long warm up.

     Bonneville dual meet.  My right quad was hurting, so I kept it even enough and easy enough that it wouldn't hurt too much, but I kept the pace good, about 5:10 average.

     We warmed up to Central Park and ran 7X1000m at tempo pace with a minute break in between.  My times were pretty consistent, running 3:05s for the first few, and running a few 3:02s later on.  It felt good, and a minute felt like plenty of time for rest.  Later I ran 3 miles with my dad.
