Pre-high school: I ran a lot of local 5ks and a few half marathons.  I didn't do a ton of training, but I just had fun, and I got more serious about it as high school got closer.

High school: I enjoyed running a lot, especially cross country.  I originally did track to keep my in shape for cross country.  I ran at Footlocker Nationals, the Adidas Dream mile, Brooks PR Invitational, world xc junior championships, and a few local 5ks.

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.

AM-Lake Loop tempo.  We did a new lake loop, so that meant we went off GPS watches. This isn't my favorite, because every watch I've used, unlike others I run with, say that the wheel is short.  We ran in trainers and Milly took us out in 4:38 for the first mile.  My watch said I averaged 4:50, but Clayton's distance would've had me at 4:47ish.  It was about 5.14 in distance due to the new change of running the river trail.  

PM-6 miles in Bear Lake.

AM-5 easy miles. 

PM-2.5 miles with strides.  Clayton's car said it was 111 degrees outside.  Either way, it was hot, so I cut it a bit shorter.

AM-Good race, not great.  Lots of moves made when they shouldn't have been, and lots of good opportunities to run smarter were missed.  11 miles after.

PM-8 miles.  I ran over to Intramural Field to run with Aaron, then Clayton and Milly came, so we did a lap with them, but everything ended up being longer than I thought, so it ended up being 8 miles.  I'm fine with that.

AM-10.90 miles on the Bonnville Shoreline Trail. This run is always tough for me, but I kow it's great for summer mileage. 

PM-5.4 miles.  I ran with Talem and Will, and we saw Brandon, one of our throwers, practicing for the hammer.

AM-10 miles at Fire Road.  Definitely wasn't good for my achilles that first mile.  It was a good run though.  We talked about the regional steeplechase in 2018 and we all remembered it differently.  

PM-5.1 miles, mostly grass loops.  It was hot.

AM-Long run. I ran with Clayson on the other Bonneville Shoreline Trail.  Today was pretty tough after a couple miles  We started at 7:00 AM, but it still felt really hot.  I definitly didn't hydrate enough leading up to this run.

AM-10.66 miles.  Due to Achilles pain, I didn't run fire road with most of the guys, but Clayton and Michael were there, which was nice. 

PM-5 miles in SLC on the way home.  My car is having trouble, so my mom picked me up when she was passing through, but she had lots of stops, so I ran from the Costco in SLC.
