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.

      Went for a pretty nice run with some of the people from the XC team.  Then we played a game, did some core excersices and the some more running.  I loved seeing some of those people again.  We went kinda slow for most of it, except the beast (where we sprinted) and the game.

     Did a small warm up.  Then did a really fast 6.2 mile run, which I am now questioning the distance due to have faster the time was then I thought.  Then did a nice and slow mile cool down.  It felt good to finally due a good run for the first time in a week.  My calf felt great.

      Ran the first dam run.  Deicided to run the 5k to get ready for the foot locker.  I think I put too much clothing on, and that kinda slowed me down.  At first I didn't know we were starting, so also my start was pretty slow.  Jerrel was just faster than me the whole race, with his pace.

    Ran a nice warm up.  Then went and ran a 5 mile tempo run.  I was hoping to get an average of 5:30 miles, but the average was just a bit over.  It was faster than I was thinking to go at first, but then I just felt good.  Had a nice cool down after.

    I'm not sure about the distance.  I went running with the team, and the coaches gave me a schedule to start training for the footlocker.  We went on a trail run in the canyon, which was amazing.  I had to leave early, sadly.

     The schedule my coaches gave me told me to do a long run.  I was planning on just running to Aggie Creamery and having my dad pick me up.  I got there 45 minutes early, so I ran to my dad's work, which was only 2 miles or 2.5 away.  I felt great.

     Did a warm up with a bunch of warm clothes on.  Took a bunch off after my mile and a half warm up.  Then I did a fartlked workout that my coaches which was a 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90 seconds of sprints with the same amount of break in between.  Did it twice with a four minute break in between them.  Felt like I pushed it pretty good.  Did a 1.5 mile cool down.
