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
5000: 13:59.58 (UW Indoor Invite 2021)
Mile: 4:07 (converted from 4:12.06 at altitude)
Indoor 3000: 8:14 (converted from 8:24.76 at BYU indoor race, 1/16/21)
10000: 29:57 (West Coast Relays 2021)
800: 1:55.6@ (solo time trial at Provo high school)
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.

Congratulations on the 10000m PR the other day.
You collegiate running career has been very exciting to watch. I really hope that you will continue to run if possible even out of college. I know that it will be hard being married with a new baby, but I think you have a lot of good running ahead of you. I don't think you have come near to reaching your peak yet. You have been making such great improvements every year.
