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.

     5 easy this morning. Probably a tempo run on the same course later today.

     PM- I went on my usual 5 mile tempo run, with 2 mile cool down. During the run I felt pretty good.   I got my goal by 20 seconds, mainly because I didn't think I was going to get it and so I pushed myself a lot that last mile.  Actual mile split (goal splits):  1. 5:05(5:05) 2. 5:40(5:40) 3. 5:29(5:30) 4. 5:23 (5:20) 5. 5:33 (5:55).  I beat my goal by twenty seconds.  I either forgot how much these runs hurt, or this one hurt more than usual.

      4 mile hard tempo, 5 miles easy.  4 miles times: 4:48 downhill, 5:35 uphill, 5:23 uphill then downhill, 5:07 downhill.  My overall time was 2 seconds slower than last week.  I was surprised about my first mile, but I could feel it after during the third and fourth miles.  During the easy 5 miles I could definately feel it.  I got my training schedule from Coach Write for foot locker.  I'm going to try to run this by Bryan and try to find one that is in between both schedules.

    Went on what was supposed to be an easy long run.  I didn't feel like I was pushing it until the last few miles.  Average for the last 10 miles was 6:30.  In between my first and second mile I saw Nick and Calvin and talked to them for a while.  Then I went and timed the next 10 miles, but just to see what they would be.  I think that made me go faster and push myself those last few miles that I didn't feel the best during.

Went on a run up to sunny side with a few repeats on Beauty and Beast. I went when it was dark, so I didn't know how fast I was going.

    I got home at 8, and it was still snowing.  It snowed all day, and so I decided to go 2 easy easy miles.

     It was really cold today, so my sister and I decided to not go to the race we were planning on.  I decided to go on an 8 mile run instead with one mile cool down.  I froze for the first few miles, then I got really warm becuase the sun came out.  When I did my cool down, I took a layer off, and then froze all over again.  Splits: 5:09, 5:57, 5:57, 6:39, 5:40, 5:23, 5:39, 5:51.
