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.

20 minutes of swimming and then 3 miles on the tread mill and low 7:00 pace. It felt good. I've run a bit over the weekend but I don't really know how long or far because I ran new places and my watch broke during my mission. Oh well. Coach Houle instructed me to keep it to 3 miles per day for now so I will do that. Its important to remember that I'm an inexperienced 19 year old that's lucky to be on the team and he's trained many very success athletes and raised up a lot of national championship teams and Conference Champions, and Cam Levins and others like him. So its easy for me to accept his wisdom and without thinking that I know what I can do better. I'm excited to get in shape and have all kinds of fun running this summer, the plan is that I will be back up to 60-70 per week when I get to SUU this fall. Sounds good to me!

I can't help but reflect on how lucky I've been with the coachs I've had/will have. Coach Murphy is an amazing coach and without him there's no way I could've made it to the division 1 level! I guess I will just do warm upsand stuff at practice for awhile, I will come tomorrow, hopefully I can also learn all the coaching wisdom possible from Coach Murphy during this time when I can go to practice alot!

I ran with Read, Cubby, and Brandon and Ian (not sure on last 2) for the top part of the best buy loop until I turned down and they continued to 12300. About to go swimming!

I ran up to the rec center and ran around the park on my way back. I've had a lot of appointments today. I am leaving to Hawaii tomorrow so I'm going to have some fun running in that beautiful location!

No Garmin and first time at Kauai Hawaii so I took my phone and set a 25 minute limit to keep it to about 3 miles. So beautiful here!!! I absolutely love it, the ocean is warm, the sky is bright and blue, everything is much and green, I love this place! I went to a farmers market and tried a bunch of cool fruit, we drove to this view over a mountain, we went swimming/snorkeling and hiked to this awesome plase called the queens bath, really beautiful but muddy. Then I went running from there to the beach to the end of the golf course and on the way home I hit 25 minutes so I walked in the last 10 minutes. So nice!!! I need to figure out how to post pictures on here.
