Night run in Lehi. Felt like the high school days. Chose there so I would get away from the bugs but then there was a fire which made parts of the run uncomfortable. I also ate 4 or 5 pieces of pizza for dinner earlier and that wasn't fun. But it was still a really fun run. Cruised the last mile cuz the legs felt good and night runs always end fast cuz they are so hype. Probs shouldn't have been running so fast but when you have hardly any good runs for so long, you take what you can get.

Ran with Collin aka Salt boy. We ran over to skyridge to see if the xc team was there, they weren't. I told him how the night before I was thinking about how I was itching to run fast and wanted to do a 400. He joined in. I got 57.xx and he ran 58 high. It hurt haha but it was so much fun. Wrecked me for the rest of the run tho. We then ran down to the creek to see if the team was there, they weren't. Ran back up to his house, the Eaglecrest hill killed me haha.

Alpine Loop. Haha very memorable time. Going up, I realized I hadn't ate dinner the night before and I could feel my body shutting down. There was a guy up at the top who was an answer to prayers and offered me some food #praisethelord Saw Dan and his group at the top. Got to Murdock and started to feel awful. Barely made it to the twins house and the angel Mama Hinckley let me have a bunch of food before I passed out. Good times.

Beaver to Eagle Point. I underestimated how hard it would be to bike at 10k ft. And not only was it just biking at 10k, the steepness never let up. Cardio wasn't bad, it was just so hard on my legs.

My first Century ride!! I went into the ride planning on doing 85 miles. I started at my house, biked over to Collins, and started the regular Alpine Loop. Although this time I went up to Tibble Fork for the first time and I rode up South Fork for the first time. I met these two guys up at the top who were cool. One of the guys lives in Saratoga and was like you gotta do the gauntlet: Granite Flats, Alpine, Cascade, SF, & Squaw. That would be a sick ride. Adding it to the list. When I got back to Saratoga and was riding past the Jordan River trail I thought to myself: I'm already gonna be at 85, why not just add some more and make it a century? So I went and added some mileage on the JR trail. It wasn't very fun haha. It was getting sooooo hot and the whole way back from the Windmills was into a headwind. I was starting to really bonk so I called up my parents and my dad brought me two gatorades. That helped me feel a lot better and I slowly made it past the Maverick, added on some a mile or so to get over 100, and climbed the hill to my house! :) 101 miles and 5600 ft of gain

Tried to go up Powder Mountain but that thing was just too steep for me at this point. Went up about 30 minutes and turned around. I'll get in some more work and i'll be back! According to one site it's the hardest climb in the state so I'm too disappointed about it. I biked around the reservoir and went up Snow Basin. My glutes/hamstrings were killing for part of the climb even tho it wasn't that steep. Views getting to the top were amazing! Fun ride. Jumped in Pine View after.

Powder Mountain!! One of the hardest things I've ever done. That road is so steep its ridiculous. I took my first break a little past where I turned around last time and threw up. I would go for a little while and then I would take a break because my legs couldn't keep going. Eventually got all the way to the top. Was talking to these moutain bikers who had seen me on their drive up and they said they had zero desire to bike up to the top because of how miserable Powder Mountain road is haha That descent was crazzy!

EVEREST ATTEMPT: 

Been wanting to do this for a while now, even if it was extremely uncommon for someone who has been into biking for only 6 months to try. A few days prior to the big day, Bri and Dan found out I was gonna try to Everest and were bombarding me with questions about my preparation. Which they rightfully should have been doing because I could have gotten myself into some serious trouble trying something of such great magnitude. That proved evident when the night before I was originally going to do it, Jeff and I discovered that my rear brake was completely toast. And again when the night before I didn't have the best food options prepared and I hadn't thought enough about making sure my lights and watches would last. So it's a really good thing that other people got involved and helped me out. Jeff and Janeen were a huge help for giving me tons of high-quality clothes for the cold. That made a world of difference in the early morning. 

I started just after 5am. It really wasn't very cold at all at the start. Weather was perfect actually. The air was so crisp and clean. The lights were working great and it was just a lot of fun. The first few hours flew by! Before I knew it,  I was three hours in, the sky was getting brighter and the sun was about to come up. Right at that time, it got SO COLD. It was FREEZING. I forgot about wearing warm socks and my feet kinda froze haha. But we survived. I don't think there's much to say about the next few hours. I was just doing the same thing over and over again haha. I slowly changed into warmer clothes as the temperature climbed. Legs were still feeling good. It started to get noticeably harder at around 50 miles. It was taking me a couple minutes longer to climb. One thing that I need to be better at next time is not stopping as often. If I need to stop to change clothes, that's ok cuz you don't want to keep doing a bunch of laps either freezing cold or sweating a ton. But I need to be better about stopping less for food. I understand how important eating and drinking is don't get me wrong, but I was pretty scared of crashing and I think I just got a little mentally weak and got used to having that break so often. So I can do better with eating and drinking more during stops so I can stop less, or eating and drinking during the laps as well, something I didn't do at all. 

I got to 84 miles I think, and I had a 7-up and some high chews and they made me feel great, like I had a second wind. So I kept on having more of that. At some point after that I realized that I wasn't going to have time to go all the way to 162 miles and 29k due to the stuff I had to do for my group project in Digital Media. (Not sure if my legs and body would have been able to go that long, but I knew I wasn't going to have the choice) and once I knew that it was harder to keep my morale up because I knew I was only climbing to make the number look better cuz I wasn't gonna make it all the way. 

Bri came and joined me when I was at like 95 miles and we did 2 climbs together. Then we stopped for food and Dan got there. On the way back up with Dan, I accidentally got in the rocks and popped my tire :( it had a big slash in it so he had to do the dollar bill thing. It worked and we made it back up. He left for home and I did one more down and up. I forgot to start my watch tho so I didn't get that last part on the watch. My dad got there part way thru that rep. I finished at 6:30pm with 113.35 miles and 20,800 ft of gain. Moving my PR's for distance and gain up from 104.8 and 11k. An incredible day on the bike. Dan gave me a shout out on his strava and said "112 miles and 20k vert. For a guy who's been riding for less than 6 months that is actually amazing." It was a super dope experience. Sadly I didn't get all the way to 29k but I still showed mental toughness and the biking skills that I've acquired this summer. No doubt I get it next summer. If I didn't have to leave early, it would have taken me a way long time, but I was physically capable of accomplishing it. I had climbed it 26 times, that's only 10 more. Tons of fun and if I don't end up riding anymore this year due to the weather, then it was one hell of a last ride!!

Overnight we had the first big snowfall of the winter which made it beautiful outside. I headed down to Uintah to one of my favorite places to run, the Davis-Weber Canal. Started at the usual spot by the parkway. It was one of those beautifully peaceful, calming, winter runs. 9 miles at 6:35. Let the legs roll a bit.

Very fun to get out and push myself. Started a little fast, as usual for a road race. For a good amount of the race, I was going back and forth with a guy who said he runs for AF. Last mile I was closing a little on Isaac from LP but I never fully pulled the trigger to go after him, due to fear of it being too big of a gap and dying off. Should have gone for it. I think my finishing time was around 17:10

Weber mile time trial baby. It was so much fun racing again, racing the mile, racing on the track, racing with the boys... so much fun. I was really interested to see what I would run. Lots of hype and adrenaline going into the race. First lap was a 67, can't remember the other ones. Just ran behind Conner. He had gapped me by a few seconds by the last lap. Tried to close some but I think it stayed about the same. I think I pushed myself well and ran as fast as I could. 4:37 was my time. I wasn't sure if I was going to be able to break 4:40. After the girls ran their mile, Matt and Bryce were running the 800 and I hopped in for the first lap with them. Ran in the pack with them for 300 and then swung out a bit and kicked. Finished in a 54! Big PR! Definitely wasn't expecting to be able to run that fast.

1st workout in the Dee. Except for the snow hitting you in the eye, the weather on the warm-up was awesome. I love winter running. Workout was 1500 meter repeats. Did two of them at 5:11 pace. During the third one I was fading hard so Talley told me to go til 1250, five laps instead of six. I wasn't sure if I was going to be able to do another one, but Talley told me to do one more 1250 so I did. Slowed down quite a bit but did what I could. Grinding with the boys is just the best.
