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-6.5 easy miles, mostly with Talem, Michael, and Jake. 
PM-2 mile, 1.5 mile. 1 mile at Intramural field. For some reason, intramural field is always "longer" according to people's gps watches, but it is flatter, so I'm never too sure what to think of times. Anyway, 9:25, 7:04, 4:35 for the splits. Felt good. Last year I was 15 seconds slower on the 2 mile, 1 second slower on the 1.5, and 1 second faster on the mile. Last year I didn't run this workout alone.

AM-6 miles with Michael and Jake.  

PM-12 miles with some strides on the indoor track.  The group thinned out when we did a loop near the airport and back on the old highway, and later university.  It was perfect weather.

AM-May have miscalculated the distance. Race went well, lots of wind, fast moves, and good competition. I was very fortunate to come away with the win today. I'll write more later

PM-4 miles in Chicago. Pretty tired from the meet and long bus ride.
