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-5 miles with Michael, Talem, and even Danny Carney joined us today.

PM-10x1000m at tempo pace. Due to some slight soreness, I took the workout a bit easier initially.  Started around 3:01, and was around 3:00-02 for the first few.  Ran the last four around 2:52-58.  Didn't feel terrible, didn't feel great, just kinda sore.  It was surprisingly hot, and I drank water after every other.  The team looked great, the pack was a few seconds ahead of where we were 4 weeks ago.

AM-10.2 with Talem, Michael, and Jake.  Well, the last 5 were with just Talem.  

PM-6 on the Alter-G.  Felt a little more tired from the past week, so I'll take it a bit easier to rest.

AM-4.5 miles with Michael and Jake. I would've gone farther, but just trying to ease back a bit. Mostly grass loops.

PM-2x(mile, 1200m, 800m).  We ran it all on the grass by the track.  Wardy was coming off an insane workout, and Milly and Clayton were coming off their races, so they were taking the workout easier. The first one was a bit slow (4:44), but then the 1200 went pretty quick (3:20), and the first 800m was probably a bit too fast (2:10).  On the second set we went 4:35, 3:19, 2:11.  Clayton said his GPS watch had us about 7 seconds faster than our estimated course(Coach had wheeled this before, but without cones or anything to make sure we were running the same course, we just estimated where we thought we would end). I felt pretty good at the end, and probably could have done another set and still felt fine, but it was good to have it end there.
