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

College 

5000: 13:59.58 (UW Indoor Invite 2021)

Mile: 4:07 (converted from 4:12.06 at altitude; also converted by NCAA to 3:48.8 for 1500)

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)

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. 

 

Personal:

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.

Race day! First time racing in the jersey my brother gave me, and first time running a track race since 2019. My plan was to go out at the back of the pack and finish strong. That's basically what I did. Had to run sub 8:30 to PR and I ran 8:27.02. Not a huge improvement but we haven't really been training for this. I hope to continue to improve a lot. I saw my splits afterward though and I must say I am impressed with my teammates' ability to pace. I think I hit about 54 for each fifth-mile lap, with a 55 and maybe a 53 thrown in there, until the last lap.

Side note: I ran really well here two years ago (8:39 was my time and that was really good for me). I concluded three specific things helped me run well that all started with R: I was rested (took a power nap before), relaxed (not nervous), and ready (had run a race pace 400 on the outdoor track berforehand). Well, I did those same things today! Once again, my race pace 400 was slow (70) and felt hard. So it's nice to go in the race and be able to somehow run 67s. Also, I'm just happy to be healthy.
