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.

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.

Felt great today. Had to make a few stops, but my legs felt great. I'm super stoked for the race this Saturday, the team is looking so good right now.

3 miles warm up, 6x800 on grass track (I like it more than intramural field), and it went super well. I felt good, relaxed and just stuck in the front of the group. 2:18, 2:17, 2:19, 2:16, 2:16, 2:13, then a cool down after. 400m jog between the 800s.

4 easy miles in the morning. Little pain in my left lower calf, but nothing too bad. 

8.4 easy miles. Did most of it with Marcus and Zac. It felt relaxed. I can't wait to watch the team kill it this weekend.

2.5 warm up, then fartlek(10, 5, 3, 2, 1) with equal rest (other than the 10, where we had 5 minutes) at 6:40 pace.(that's what it was supposed to be.) We got about 7 miles in during the fartlek. I felt pretty good, and it was with a fun small group. Most of the guys went to watch nationals, and then we split with the 880 group.  I ran the first two with Connor Weaver, and the next two alone, then for the final minute I started in the back and nearly got in front by the end. I heard we ran a 400m for the minute, so that was cool to see. I'm so excited to see how our team does on Saturday, it's going to be sweet!

Total Distance

10 miles. When we split up on the run I was only with the 880 guys. After I did 6 strides

5:48 average pace. We ran after watching the race. It was pretty depressing that the team had the worst race all season. NAU ran pretty amazing, so I personally think we still would've taken 2nd if it would had a good day. We still have next year though.
