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.

warmed up, and I kinda felt a stomach ache during the day, and during the strides before. The workout was 4x1000m(cruise intervals) with 1 min rest, then 4x400 at mile pace with 2 min rest. The 1000s weren't very hard, I was about 2:59 or 3:00 for them, and it felt relaxed. As soon as we started the first four, my stomach had a fit. I ended up only doing one 400, then a slow off and on cool down, then a slow jog/ walk back to the fieldhouse. Not a great day for me.

4 in the morning, felt a bit sick, but a ton better than yesterday, then I ran 8 later in the afternoon. Hopefully I'll be good for tomorrow's workout.

Good workout today. No stomachache, so I was excited to run. It was 4xmile for the travel squad, and 2xmile and 3x800 for us. Miles were 4:49, 4:46, 800s were 2:18, 2:18, 2:17. I felt controlled during it, but was pretty tired by the end. While cooling down I twisted my ankle or something, because it started to hurt a ton. Slow jog back to the school, then iced it. It swelled up a good bit. Iced it later too.

only a little ankle pain, so I did 4 in the morning, then 8 in the afternoon. Put a hot pack on before the afternoon run and that made it feel better. Iced after.

15 miles, some ankle pain. Iced it after. A bunch of guys were trying to get one of the 880 guys to go under 90 minutes for the run. He probably could have, but the pacing was pretty inconsistent. I think we had a few 5:35s randomly, and then we'd slow it down then speed it up. The other guy was pretty tired from the week on top of it. I think the group averaged about 5:51 per mile.
