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.

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 miles alone.  Woke up early due to daylight savings, but waited for others to run with.  No one showed up though. 

PM-12 miles, then some strides on the track. Went a bit quick during some parts.  Ready for a great workout tomorrow.

AM-6 miles with Michael, Talem, and then we met Andrew Brewer on the way.

PM-10.8. 5 mile tempo at lake loop. Wore trainers, coach said no flats today. Goal pace was 4:50-55, but my watch was a bit weird, and I didn't hear splits after mile 2, so I went off feel. Ran 23:58, just 18 seconds off what I ran it in 4%s last year with people. Today also felt easier. Good things to come.

AM-6.1 miles. 

PM-2x(mile, 1200, 800) on the grass near the track.  Fast starts for the miles (64 and 65 first 400s).  Went 4:30, 3:21, 2:14, 4:33, 3:28, 2:07.  After the first 2 reps, Coach had me tone it down after this and run with the pack. I ran with the group on the first 800m and the second 1200m, and part of the second mile.  I felt good.

AM-Long run with the team. Last 8 miles were with Jake. I felt a little tired, so hopefully this shorter long run will help me be ready for two weeks.
