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.

   2 mile walk again today.  I really needed it.  My legs need to run.  Tomorrow I'll finally be able to run again.

   Looking back on 2012, I've had a great year.  I averaged approximately 32 miles a week.  Now to think of new goals for next year.

Total Distance

       Easy run with my sister and dad.  I won't try any hard workouts until thursday or friday.  8:20 pace today. My dad made sure I spat a few times in order to make sure my mouth didn't start bleeding, and it looked normal, so I'm pretty happy about that.  My legs felt amazing, and I wanted to keep going, but I don't want to over do it. 

Total Distance

    Just another easy day.  I'm planning on having a good workout friday and saturday.  The run was freezing.  My hands felt terribly cold from mile 1.5 until the end of the run.  When I came back I checked the temperature.  Only 6 degrees.  Maybe I'll run on a treadmill one of these days if it's cold like today.

Total Distance

    5 maybe.  Not sure about the distance.  Went with Tyler, Kyler, and Tyson.  It was really cold.  It was around 4 degrees.  Tomorrow I might start with my speed work as in more tempo runs. 

Total Distance

     4 easy with Kyler in the gym.  13 times around for one mile, my favorite.  2 hard at 5:27 pace with an incline that kept changing on a treadmill. After that 1 mile at 6 min.(in the gym) pace, then I saw Ethan and ran 2 and a bit in the gym with him until a soccer team of little girls took over half the gym so we couldn't finish our last mile.  Then we went to the dreaded treadmills again and I did a progression mile of just getting faster and faster until I finished the last quarter mile or so at a 5 min. mile pace( but it was on a treadmill so I wouldn't count it as really 5 min.)

      I was planning on going on a hard 5 miles today, but I did more miles than I thought I would yesterday and I was sore.  I decided to time it and go for 29 minutes.  It was warmer outside than it'd be in the last few days, so I thought it'd be a good run.  It wasn't that much.  My stomache wasn't feeling that great also, but I thought I could've ran faster.  I ran it in 29:30, just 30 sec. slower than I wanted.  Next week is the first indoor meet and I'm pretty excited now.
