I ran for Alta high school and was trained by Coach Murphy, he is a great coach, one of the best there is. I ran for Southern Utah University for a year or two. I am currently a doctoral student at Bowling Green State University studying industrial organizational psychology. Right now my main goals are to stay healthy and run consistently.

Premeet, lets see how a lifestyle of pizza, soda, candy, cookies, and stir fry along with 2-3 miles per day holds up against the cottonwood heights 5k. School is going well, been busy. Shout out to the guys who took 11th at nationals, and byu's mens team who took 3rd and women's team who took 11th. I ran the course in 19:27 and it felt pretty good. Averaged 6:19 on my run, I kind of had the mentality of running a minute slower per mile than i will tomorrow. I didn't push myself but I also only slowed myself down a couple times. We'll see if my body really did feel like it could go 3 minutes faster tomorrow or if I have just gotten too uses to training at sub 6 pace.

Nice race, for being at about 10 miles per week I did alright. Conditions were really nice and I had fun, might train for a marathon this summer and break 3 hours, maybe 2:50 if I really get into it. I'm considering not doing collegiate level running anymore, I graduate from suu in 17months, maybe I will try going to the first indoor meet but I think with all the injuries (pinched nerves still giving me trouble) and other priorities overtaking competitive running, maybe I should just run for health and fun.
