Running Accomplishments:

Pre- High School- I did a few local races, such as 4th of July/charity 5ks. I mainly just ran for fun, and to get a feel for running. I didn't do a lot of training or workouts until Jr. High track started. As high school got closer, i started to get more serious.

Freshman Year- I decided to run xc for Weber High School. I ran very little over the summer, and had a rough start to the season. Despite the rough start, I got faster and was able to run on the varsity team more often than not. I dropped my 3 mile time to 17:04, but didn't make it to State. I finnished the season at Footlocker west regionals. I didn't prepare well and placed 22nd in the freshman race. (4th from Utah) Indoor track started and I wanted to break 5 really bad, but ended up running 5:02 at Simplot. When outdoor track started I was really anxious to win. I practiced with the high school as much as possible, despite running for Snowcrest Jr. High. I won a few outdoor meets, and dropped my mile time to a 4:40. At the district meet I took 2nd in the mile to Bronson Winter. During the 800m, I got a PR of 2:07.

Sophomore Year- I put in a good summer of running and was super excited for xc. I was now the 2nd man on the team. I had some really great races and continued to improve. I finished the regular season with a 16:00 5k. At footlocker west, i had a good race but not quite where i had hoped. Indoor came around and i had some nice PR's before i got bursitis in my left knee. Got better and transitioned to outdoor where the season started off well. After running my PR of 4:23 1600m, i got really sick and never got back to 100% during the season. I ended up at 9:41 for 2 miles, and 2:05 800m. I didn't have the performance I wanted at state, but im ready for the next year.

All time official PRs:

400m- 55, Sophomore track 2016

800m- 2:05, sophomore track 2016

1600m- 4:23* (sea level) Sophomore track 2016

3200m- 9:41, Sophomore track 2016

3 mile- 15:27* Sophomore xc 2015

5k- 16:00, sophomore xc 2015

*times converted

Short-Term Running Goals:

Break 15 for 3 miles

Sub 15:30 5k

Place in the top 10 at state xc

Qualify for Footlocker Nationals

Long-Term Running Goals:

Keep improving and getting faster. Train hard and not get burned out. Basically just enjoy the run.


I will be a Junior at Weber High School this year. I'm LDS, and will be serving a 2 year mission after High School. I love animals, hiking/ fishing with my dad, and running with my friends.

Last day at BYU. We went back to the same park we were at on the first day and raced the same 2 mile course. We were all pretty tired and only went a little faster than we did on the threshold run but it still felt good.

Day 3 of the BYU camp. We woke up early again and went for a 3 mile run on the shoreline trail. Later we ran 4.5 more miles up to Stewart falls. Both were moderately easy. 

Tonight Brayden and I did 2.5 more around campus to get more miles.

Day 2 of the BYU camp. We woke up early and did a fartlek workout at another park. The fartlek went 8,5,3,2,1 hard then easy for each. We did the hard sets at just under 5:00 pace. The full thing including warm ups and cool downs was 7.5. 

Later in the day we went for an easy 4 miles on the Provo river trail. (7:00 avg.)

Today Brayden and I left for the BYU XC camp. We left early and didn't have time for a run. Once we got there, we did a really short warm up and cool down and then a 2 mile threshold run at a park. It felt good but Ragnar definitely wiped me out.
