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.

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.

1 mile swim(1800 yards) in freezing water.  Turns out the boiler for the school swimming pool broke on Saturday(I swam at Sports Academy that day).  It doesn't help that it snowed outside at it was 5:30 in the morning when I got there.  They didn't tell me until after. I was wondering why the shower never got warm.  At night I pool ran for an hour plus core. Productive day.

Pool ran for an hour.  I didn't have much time all day to do stuff, so it's an off day. I'll try to get some core in later tonight.

Total Distance

1 hour 15 minutes of pool running.  It's getting better, and I was actually able to get myself to run out of breathe for a bit today.  I did core prior to it. 

Total Distance

50 minutes of pool running.  Hard.  3X3 min. interval, then 3X2 min. interval, and 2X1 min. interval.  It was hard, but not really hard.  I need to run.

1800 yards of swimming.

Total Distance

2000 yards of swimming, plus some pool running. Did Mark S's 20 sec. on 10 off for 4 min.  It was hard, but I had trouble getting myself to dig deep, so it wasn't too bad.  It's hard to find motivation right now. 

Total Distance

Hardest core session I've done in a long time(probably since last year in August. .), plus an hour of pool running with intervals.  4:40 on, then break, then 1:30 on, 30sec. a bunch of different times, and a few 2 min. on, and 1 min.  It hurt. I kept my head out of the water and was sweating, but the water was fairly warm, but it still is good to work hard enough that I sweat.
