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.

Long-Term Running Goals:

Make sure I have fun, not get burned out, and get faster.

School records in the 5km and 10km.  


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.

Total Distance

AM-1 mile.  Not sure if I should record this, but eh, I made it a half mile out on the long run with a hard time breathing, so I tried to play it safe. Slow jog back, then tried to go on a walk, but even that was really tough.  So I waited for everyone at the cars.  I really wish I didn't have this problem now, because I really look forward to running with the team.

Darn, wishing you well, and that it clears up soon. Man, that has got to be hard not being able to run with the team, if it had to happen at least it happened now after NCAA's. If this keeps up, might be good to get a second opinion.

Nothing abnormal in the hospital tests?

This sounds so strange - hope it turns out to be very minor. Stay positive. You have a huge reservoir of fitness and a little downtime is not a bad thing.

So, as far as the hospital tests it isnít anything serious, but they didnít give me a definitive diagnosis. They said it could be a virus, pleurisy, or something else I canít remember. I was pretty much told to rest and let my body take care of it.

Hope you feel better soon Conner.
