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.

Workout today. Actually felt pretty good, nice and in control. We ran on the indoor track because people thought it was too windy outside. 2:11, 2:13, 2:11, 2:10 for 800 and 62, 60 for 400 w/ 3 minutes rest each time. I'm just grateful that after 2 weeks of break, I hopped back in and felt fine. I feel like 2 weeks optimizes physical and psychological rest while also maintaining fitness.

AM: 5 miles. Note that I ran this pretty fast, and using some calculations, started doubting that the turnaround point on my classic morning run was accurate. When I mapped it out, it looks like indeed it was a little short. So I need to definitely go the majority of the way to the curve before turning around. I still ran like 6:40 pace this morning though. 

PM: 8 miles. Today I found out we won't be able to attend one of the races we had planned on in April. That gives me ONE shot at sea level to get a regional qualifying mark, in about a month. That is kind of dissapointing, and puts the pressure on for that one race. But a) I stand by my decision and the reasons for which I made it (I do feel like my body was telling me to take a break) and b) I am no stranger to high pressure races. There were probably three or so XC races where my ability to travel to the next race depended on me performing well in the current race. So I need to not sweat it and trust that I will be able to perform well when it counts, even though I've never run a track 10K before (which is what I hope to be able to run).

Don't think it reached 70 degrees but it felt like running in the summer. I worked out with the pro group. I decided to try to hang with them for as long as I could rather than go off of feel (which is not really my style, so I thought it would be good). I dropped off at around 2.5 miles. Hit 3 miles in 14:55ish I think? 25:10 overall for the five miles. The last couple hurt pretty bad. It wasn't the normal lake loop fyi, it was two shorter loops.

Ran harder than I wanted to to make it back in time for conference (just over 6 minute pace again), and felt sore hips and a somewhat sore achilles. I will appreciate having the weekend off.
