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)

Mile: 4:07 (converted from 4:12.07 at altitude; also converted by NCAA to 3:48.8 for 1500)

10000: 29:38.73 (Mt. SAC relays 2022)

Indoor 3000: 8:13 (converted from 8:24.76 at BYU indoor race, 1/16/21)

800: 1:55.6@ (solo time trial at Provo high school, 2019)

400: 51.84h (solo time trial at NMHS, 2015)



10 mile: 50:22 (converted from 51:08 at Lift Bridge Race, June 2022)


Short-Term Running Goals:

-Stay as fit as possible given my current stage of life

Long-Term Running Goals:

-Run a few fast marathons. Grandma's, St. George, and Boston are on my target list. An Olympic Trials qualifier would be amazing. 

-Break stroller records? 

-Stay fit for a very long time. I believe what goes into making a competitive runner at age 60 is much different than age 20, just like what goes into making a good marathoner differs from a good sprinter. I hope that by taking care of my body, I can be very fast for my age as I get older.

Quiet, overcast Saturday morning run in the mid 60s through a beautiful place. What more could you ask for? I guess these were the running conditions I was paying for over the winter. I was again surprised by how slow I went. Oh well. It was a cool but slow course- getting on East river road via East river flats, then finishing up running down the trail at Shadow falls (St Thomas jut) for the first time. 

I wonder if my old shoes are making my tendons hurt. I'm excited to get new ones after my trip.

Surprised to have run only 7 minute pace starting with the fam on diagonal. Maybe still getting back into it.

9 miles on farmers fields, about 7 minute pace but felt good. Rainy day, it was the best type of run.

Feeling very stressed the past couple days. Whether this contributed more to me feeling tired today or race recovery, I don't know. 7 minute pace.

East river flats, 6:50 pace. Nice rain this morning. Went at 6:15 and it was light as if it were 8 am! That must have made it easier to go running at that time.
