Personal:

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.

I don't have much time, I need to be at work in 20 mins. It was a recovery run but it felt hard because it was so hot and I haven't run the best buy loop in a long time, and my calfs were hurting for some reason during the day. So it definintely didn't feel nice and easy but i could talk very comfortably. After best buy we did a lower loop and then I did 6 laps with Chase and Kenton to get up to 10 miles.

We went up to alta for the last time today, we did a mile warm up and then 4 laps at the top so it was 10.4 altogether. It felt good on the way down, the way up hurt less than it usually does. Oh wait, actually my left calf wasn't hurting on the way down but it felt like it was about to cramp up. That's probably because it started cramping up in the middle of the night, but I've had enough of them that I've learned to just stretch it out and hold in place but not to tense it or fight the cramp so it really didn't hurt at all, but I was a little worried about that on the way down from the campground and on the last lap. Well I guess tomorrow will be interesting, I'm late for work hahaha.

We did a 30 min jog and then 6 200s. I just want to go race, and I want to do good. I don't think I am a very good runner, I thought I could finish top 10 at state senior year or even junior year, but I've just slowly been coming down to earth and realizing that it's not going to happen. I don't think I have the potential to do that, all there is to do is keep going and see what happens in the end. See where I CAN get, and try to make it a little better than it would have been every day.

Our team was REALLY tight for our 1-4 this race. It was great, our first four guys were 24-31 and alec came in at 41 to finish our top 5. Cubby ran a 17:50 for 24th place, American Fork's 7th guy was 19 so we are getting close to those guys. Chase had an awesome race and came in 2nd for our team a couple seconds ahead of me and finished 29th. I was 30th and Davis was just behind me at 31st. We were really close to each other the entire race, it was really good. This kid cut me and Davis in the finish line and was really rude about it, then I told him he was behind us and he got really angry, so on paper (which hasnt come out yet) there was a guy between me and chase and davis was 7 seconds behind me, but in reality I was right behind chase and davis was like a half second behind me. We had a really good race, and we got to cheer on the girls as well. I really liked the course, it was a tough course with slow times but I had a good time racing. I'm looking forward to the nebo invitational! And my favorite race, park city, is after that so it will be a good! They never really came out with official results but I'm assuming we took 3rd behind American Fork and Evanston. I actaully don't know if we lost to evanston, but theyre top jv freshman/sophemore guy took 2nd in the freshman/sophomore race to an american fork guy so I think they probably had some good varsity guys. I hope Kramer and Brayden did well!
