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.

Great workout. We did a mile, then 5x800m. Our group was pretty small because the 880 guys have their workouts now, and the travel squad is on break. The mile was 4:29/30(I started behind the group, so my watch had 4:29, but coach said 4:30), then we were told to run 2:13s. I went 2:13, 2:10, 2:12, 2:10, 2:08/09. It felt really smooth. We jogged a bit over the amount of time for each one(so about3 minutes jogging between the 800s). 3 miles warm up, 3 cool down.

AM- a bit over 3 easy miles. I planned on doing more, but took a long time to get out and had to make it to a lab. 

PM-10 easy miles. My hamstrings were sore. My back, shoulders, and arms were also sore from weights. And my head hurts from all the class work. But all this hurt is the good hurt at least.

warm up, tempo up canyon, 60 sec recovery, tempo effort down. 13 minutes up, 12 down. Hit a lot of traffic lights, which was super annoying because it would throw off the pacing and just made it hard.

Easy miles after a test. I think it's interesting on how much a hard test can take out of you before a run.

 Long run at Murdock canal trail. Started at 6:50 pace, slowly sped it up and finished around 1:25:45. Our last 13.1 miles was 1:13, which is close to a PR in the half for me. I'm excited for next weeks race. 

Also, shout out to BYU commit Aidan Troutner for winning NXN, and for fellow blogger Ryan Raff still running through an injury.
