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.

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.

AM-4.4 mile warm up, 5 miles at 24:47, and just over a 3 mile cool down.  Tempo today.  So, my watch battery died, and I left my charger in Smithfield, so I just went with the guys for the first few.  They told me we hit 5:00 for the first mile, which I would've been fine with at the slowest, but it was really 5:08.  After that, I sped up.  Honestly, there's a lot this time can work on, and one of the things I think is tempo runs.  

PM-6.4 miles

AM-12.5 miles total.  4.25 warm up, 2x(mile, 1200, 800) with equal recovery at K park.  It was pretty slick.  Splits were approximate because it wasn't wheeled and my watch's battery is still dead.  I just went off feel, but because it was slippery, it was pretty slow.  5:00, 3:40, 2:18, 4:45 (sun started coming out), 3:34, and 2:20.  Ran on my own for all the reps until the last 800. 

PM-5.7 miles.

AM-18 mile long run in Springfield and up hobble creek canyon.  It was pretty, but also fairly icy at some places.  I only fell once, and luckily I landed in the snow.
