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)
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)
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.
