Served a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints from July 2015-July 2017.  I gained 30 lbs. during the service and came back out of shape; however I knew that if the Lord wanted me to once again run competitively, he would bless me to return to fitness. 

I graduated from Sky View High School in Smithfield, Utah. I currently run for Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah.

Conner Mantz.

I  ran 4 slow treacherous miles. I felt terrible the whole time. My stomach hurt sooo much. I had a banana 30 min. before and it ruined my whole run. I felt like stopping at 2 and a half miles, but then I just went slower so I could say that I didn't stop the whole time even though I felt like crap.

I was a little mad about not being able to run on thursday (due to soccer practice/guitar/homework. At soccer I ran my butt off to mainly to help) so today when I didn't feel 100% I still ran as hard as I could without pushing it too hard. It was a good run up smithfield canyon. I felt pretty good except for my calfs felt a little hurt. Hopefully in a week I can run better than I did today, because next week is my first race of the year. I'm really excited.

Ran up the canyon, was going to only go 4 but hey, 5 is better. Guessing on my time from my running playlist is it was 1 or 2 min under 30 min. So it was under 6 min miles.

I ran the Shamrock in Smithfied today. Way nice. Just had a good time the whole race. Enjoyed music. Had good time. My music was kinda louder than I wanted it. The race (if you haven't ran it before) had an uphill at first, then some downhill. It was the best race, for me,  of this year so far, but that might be because of it being the only race so far this year for me. After they had a huge drawing, which I always love. If you haven't run this race before then I most definatly recommend this to you. After the race I ate some McDonalds, which was pretty yummy, but after I started regretting it. Oh well.
