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-1 hour on the arc trainer.  I kept my heart rate above 160 for a 30 minute "tempo" period, and the cool down it was pretty close to above that too. I felt exhausted after. Usually on a good day of cross training, my heart rate peaks in the 150s or 160s, so to average over 160 was a great day for me. 

PM-10.4 miles outside.  I felt exhausted, probably because of all the days I've been running or the arc trainer workout.

AM-5 miles on the alter-G at 90% and then 30 minutes on the bike. 

PM-8x1000m at intramural field.  Coach told me to not push the pace and stay with the guys upfront.  It was tough, but it was a great workout for me.  I stayed next to Garnica, Aidan, and Michael for the workout.  It was measured with watches, and the first couple were long, but we started at 3:07 and ended at 2:53.  3.3 warm up, 2.2 cool down.

AM-15 miles with Hayden Hawks.  I saw him on my run yesterday, decided to catch up to see who was running so fast, and ran with him for a few miles yesterday, so we decided to run together again today.  Most of the run was spent asking him about life as a professional, his experiences, and cross country.

AM-18 mile long run with Spencer Nelson.  He got after me for being hypocritical with sleep the last few days, which was much needed.  I'll be back to the 9:30-6:30 schedule I tell everyone to do.
