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.

Short-Term Running Goals:

Become an all-american in cross country and track.

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.  


I recently returned from serving a two year mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Ghana.  I gained 30 lbs. during the service and came back out of shape. I graduated from Sky View High School in Smithfield, Utah. I currently run for Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah.

      Started running my regular 5 mile run.  My calf had hurt after my last run and it had hurt after that also.  I didn't feel anything bad today, so I ran.  At mile 3 my calf started feeling weird.  At 3.5 I stopped to stretch it out, then finished the mile.  After that I walked home, which felt weird.  I almost never walk around there.

      Went for a pretty nice run with some of the people from the XC team.  Then we played a game, did some core excersices and the some more running.  I loved seeing some of those people again.  We went kinda slow for most of it, except the beast (where we sprinted) and the game.

     Did a small warm up.  Then did a really fast 6.2 mile run, which I am now questioning the distance due to have faster the time was then I thought.  Then did a nice and slow mile cool down.  It felt good to finally due a good run for the first time in a week.  My calf felt great.

      Ran the first dam run.  Deicided to run the 5k to get ready for the foot locker.  I think I put too much clothing on, and that kinda slowed me down.  At first I didn't know we were starting, so also my start was pretty slow.  Jerrel was just faster than me the whole race, with his pace.
