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 4:12.06 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. 



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.

AM: 10 miles with Josh, including five strides. 

PM: 5 miles. One of the reasons I realize having a training partner is so good is that they keep you relaxed and not too focused on running. That sounds weird but it’s true- you shouldn’t be thinking about running all the time (which if you only think about while you run, feels like all the time when you’re running 80 mile weeks). Anyway. Achilles’ tendon feeling a little bit.

Sarah and I are headed to St. George today so I did my long run this morning. Josh wanted to come to which was nice. I was just telling him how I love storms and I wouldn’t mind personally if it was a thunderstorm on my wedding day and right then it started raining on us. He told me I got my wish haha. Interesting weather, it was pouring on us for a bit. Oh by the way, SHOUTOUT TO BYU!!!!! 1-3-4 at 10K nationals last night. That’s insane. Like, insane.
