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 4:12.07 at altitude; also converted by NCAA to 3:48.8 for 1500)

10000: 29:38.73 (Mt. SAC relays 2022)

Indoor 3000: 8:13 (converted from 8:24.76 at BYU indoor race, 1/16/21)

800: 1:55.6@ (solo time trial at Provo high school, 2019)

400: 51.84h (solo time trial at NMHS, 2015)



10 mile: 50:22 (converted from 51:08 at Lift Bridge Race, June 2022)


Short-Term Running Goals:

-Stay as fit as possible given my current stage of life

Long-Term Running Goals:

-Run a few fast marathons. Grandma's, St. George, and Boston are on my target list. An Olympic Trials qualifier would be amazing. 

-Break stroller records? 

-Stay fit for a very long time. I believe what goes into making a competitive runner at age 60 is much different than age 20, just like what goes into making a good marathoner differs from a good sprinter. I hope that by taking care of my body, I can be very fast for my age as I get older.

5 mile tempo run on the BC greenway at 5:48 pace. Started feeeling the IT at the end so I called it quits after a short cooldown.

Drove out to Home Depot for a run on the flat. Had I been totally healthy I would have enjoyed running hills but now is not the time for that. Did 6.5 miles more or less. My knee started flaring up, actually pretty bad, but then near the end of the run it started feeling better, even with a slight down grade! Woo hoo!

Went a bit farther than yesterday. IT still hurt after a while.

Felt good during my 4-2 fartlek! I don't think it was a ridiculously fast pace. Right now my legs are still just not quite there yet. But I was stoked to be able to do 6 miles of workout after my 2 mile warmup. I didn't have any IT problems until the very end, which is why my cooldown was short. I seriously felt my glutes (which I've been working on) kick in and help out.

Awesome run! I was happy to be able to finish the whole thing and my IT band hardly hurt that much. It was the first time in a long time that I ran my long run on the flat. So when I clocked on of my miles (number 5) in at 6:10 (but being timed, that was probably faster than I had been going), I got excited and tried to "squeeze the trigger" bit by bit. My last five miles show that, to continue the analogy, I got a little "trigger happy" and ran out of gas. Next time I'll do better. The miles were 5:47, 5:36, 5:38, 5:45, and 5:46. Altogether 5:43 pace or so which is faster than my most recent tempo run! That's exciting as well as informative (perhaps a more intense warm up before hard efforts could be helpful). Gym.
