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.

       I was planning on only going on one run today, but went on two because I didn't quite feel good the first run.  I went to the track and did a small sprint workout in the morning.  I didn't feel good at all, so I decided I should run another time.  I then went running at 7 and felt great, but didn't go as fast as I usually do for the run I did.  I did 4 miles averaging a 5:40 pace, which I'm not complaining about, but I've ran that route faster and I was hoping to run it in a 5:35 pace.

      I did a small warm up, stretched and went for a 5 mile run.  Felt good before the run, but didn't feel as good during or atleast for the first mile.  After that I felt pretty good.  Did it at the pace I was hoping to get.  Did a cool down with Flech after.

      Did some L runs with a few guys from the XC team, and found out how much slower my sprint is than a lot of theirs, but maybe it was just not one of the best days for me.  Did 2 miles after with Kyler.

      Did a slower 8 mile run to get some more miles in.  Averaged around a 6:05 pace, but I'm not 100% sure.  Felt amazing, great weather, no wind, 50 degrees at the start, 35 at the end.  At mile 5.5 it all of a sudden went dark in the canyon.  Pretty cool.

      I went to a distance track camp at USU.  Learned some training methods for your legs that your supposed to do with your running.  Did some workouts with hurdles and other stuff.  Did a slow 2 mile run after.
