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.

    Alright run.  I didn't go fast, but it was really snowy and I think that could be what made it feel like I was working hard.

   Alright run.  Slow.  The roads were really snowy, except for about 400m twice in my run between miles 2-3 and 3-4 had some places that didn't have snow but were still a bit slick.  It was strange that it was really sunny and blue sky, but there was about a foot of snow out there.

    I felt like I had tons of energy to go fast.  Too bad it was all snowy.  It snowed all morning, and I thought it would lighten up, so I went at 12 and it was still really snowy.  It's all good, except for the roads.  You can't really run without slipping and sliding across the road.

    On four of my miles they were pretty clear and I tried to go atleast a 6-min. pace for the first five, but I don't know if I really did.  Then 3 miles that were absolutely terrible.  I went easy, there just wasn't any road, it was all snowy and slushy.

    I got my wisdom teeth out today.  No running for a while.

2 miles of walking.  I don't really like this wisdom teeth thing.  2 weeks until the first indoor meet though, and I won't be able to start my hard training for another week.
