Personal:

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.

6-up the canyon. Felt terrible at first, then later felt better. Leg had been hurting 'cause I had a soccer game today and yesterday, and I just slammed into someone with a part of my leg, and it takes a long time to stretch it back out now.

5 miles - Smithfield canyon. Rainy. wore a shirt that was a bit too big, and when it got soaked after the 1st mile it felt like it was makeing me go a lot slower. Wanted to take it off, but is was cold so I didn't. At the start of mile 4 my knee started hurting for about 2 or 3 hundred meters. Felt best, surprisingly, at the end of it. That never ever happens for me.

     Ran 5 miles -- Smithfield Canyon. Ran 1 mile for partly downhill and tried to get a new PR for a mile. Did it, but it was only by a second. Then after that took a half minute or minute breather, then finished my run at probably a 6 minute or a 6:10 pace. felt good, but kinda pushed it more than I should have before the race on Saturday.

2.5 -- XC practice. I'm not 100 % about how far it is. Was going to run more, but after I had my soccer practice I was completely tired out.

     Nice run up the canyon. averaged around 6 min to 6 min 10 sec. min. miles. At the turn around I saw the candy on the table. I was kinda tempted to grab some, but I knew it would only make the race worse. Later on the last 3.2 I think I averaged around a 5:30. Saw a lot of people I knew who were running it after the turn around. Saw a lot of people I knew after the race also. Steve Anderson pushed me. I kept thinking he might be getting closer, so I would try running faster.

Ran to Sky View (2.2). it was really wet and cold. My dad picked me up before I went running any more outside. Later he drove me to Sky View again. and I ran 3 miles. It felt nice to run at Sky View for a while. It was a bit warm, but for some reason, I really loved running in that heat.

Up Smithfield Canyon. Averaged 6 minute miles. At in between mile 3 and 4 I had a small stomache ache. Felt good after a minute or two. Had a good run after that.

     Went to Montana/Yellowstone for a school trip.  Didn't want to miss a day of running, especially when the utah valley half marathon being in less than 3 weeks.  Ran at night for 30 min., which I guess if my pace was 6 min. miles or shorter(which it felt like it was) that I would run 5 miles.  Took a while for the teachers to let me run outside by myself, but at 8:20 they let me. It was a good run in a really small town, which I might add had probably a thousand asain tourists, where I had my friends cheering me when they saw me running. It was pretty fun.

     Ran 6 miles after the long bus ride home from yellowstone.  Felt good to actually move instead of being in a bus with 50 yelling kids your age.  Felt fast, but didn't time it.

      Had to get a longer run in before Utah Valley.  Just two weeks until it, and I'm started to get excited.  Averaged 6:10 going up Smithfield Canyon, and around 5:45 on the way down.  Overall averaged 5:57.  Had a good run down, didn't feel that good the first mile.  I'm surprised about my last mile I got 6 minutes while gaining a lot of elevation. I usually run that mile in 6:30 on 5 mile runs, so I felt pretty good and pushed it pretty hard.  I think I saw Paul Peterson somewhere up the canyon while running.

     Didn't feel that good during it, but happy I went.  It started hailing around my turn around point and for a few minutes the hail hurt.  Rained a lot.  It was pretty cold.  I'm happy now that the Utah Valley is coming up.  I'm so excited.
