Goal Type:

NCAA Champ

Running Accomplishments:

High School:

I broke Alan Webb's HS mile record with a... well, if anyone is actually reading this, I guess I'll be honest:

XC 5K: 15:57

1500: 4:04.55

800: 2:01.05

400: 53.07

3000: 9:18


5000: 13:59.58 (UW Indoor Invite 2021)

Indoor 3000: 8:14 (converted from 8:24.76 at BYU indoor race, 1/16/21)

Mile: 4:13.9 (converted from 4:18.99 at altitude)

Road race 10000: 31:46 (alt)

800: 1:55.6@ (solo time trial at Provo high school)

400: 51.84h


Short-Term Running Goals:

-Not get injured in 2020 by really taking care of myself and by not taking workouts too seriously

-Peak at the right time. It doesn't matter how slow or fast you are, it makes a world of difference to be peaking at the right time.

-If XC happens, run at nationals. If it doesn't happen, I'd like to be in sub 29 minute 10K shape. Hopefully we can do some good time trials. 

Long-Term Running Goals:

-Break age group American records or at least get into the top 10 by continuing to find time to train and taking care of my body in other ways, including by eating a healthy diet, long after most people have quit competitive running.

-Break stroller 10K and half marathon records when we have kids. 

-Run Boston pretty fast at least once. 



I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I served a mission in Rome, Italy from 2015 to 2017. I eat a whole food, plant-based diet, which I believe helps my running. I like chocolate shakes on sunday nights and I will always call the Pacific northwest home.

Bike path miles, windy day but only 25% was into wind. 4:47, 4:43, 4:39, 4:46. 5 min rest.

Lesson learned:

go for a walk before running

you probably will never be that good without being on a team.

AM: 5 miles. Yesterday it started raining after both of my runs, today I finally got a little wet.

PM: 8.25 miles. After practice I found out I have had a high risk COVID encounter. I am pretty frustrated about it, but am grateful I got vaccinated when I did. Also, I would be super ticked if this happened before Fresno. As it stands, I should be able to return and run the BYU race next weekened...granted that I don't develop symptoms. Right now I just have to wait it out and not let my mind play tricks on me whenever I have a cough.

I wasn't feeling the best before this workout, but I have to say, I was excited to hear what we were doing. Anyone who calls themself a 10K runner should love 20 by 400 w/ 30 seconds rest. We alternated directions every 5 laps which was nice. I felt like it did a good job preparing me for a real 10K. If I learned anything, it is to just get into a rhythm running 69s or 70s depending on how I feel, and not go much faster (even a 65 lap could take it out of me and make things worse for several laps). I ran 69, 68, 68, 68, 68, 69, 69, 70, 68, 68, 68, 67, 67, 67, 67. That was all the laps my watch could hold but afterward I probably ran 67-68 per lap with a 66 and 64 for the last two I think.
