It was a really good race! I do blame myself for becoming complacent and not pushing harder on those last couple of miles. I should've trusted my legs more instead of fearing that I might fall apart if I pushed harder. Overall fun experience! Luke, Jason, Janz, and Josie ran well! Good day for PVXC alumni/coaches! 
 

PM- 2 mile shake out with Marieta.

I woke up super early to get that mileage before the team run in PV. My stomach slowed my process so I ran 1.5 before meeting up with Julien. I didn't see many cars going by so I was a nervous I was in the wrong spot. Then our team showed but no Snow Canyon. We were supposed to meet up at 6:45. By 7 we started without SC. I worked my way up to the top boys and pushed on the paved trail then on some cool dirt single track. It was my first run with top boys all season. The last 2 miles were quick and I pushed some low 6s with Hyrum and Bentley. Added another 6 miles up the Gardner Peak trail. I didn't stay on the trail that climbed up to the peak but defaulted to a flatter trail that popped me out by the church. Cooled off in the creek to wrap things up. 16.01 miles

I bought the Carbon Xs and had to test them out. They felt great! I could tell they wanted to go faster but I was in a sluggish funk after Sunday dinner. I'll save them for fast long runs. 2.20 miles

AM- 15 warm up with some tempo. Working on threshold and cv for 5:30 and 4:00 minute intervals. I mixed in with Carson then Jenna's group. I ran the last 4 minute CV with the top boys. They were amazing at helping each other and alternating their leaders. It was a good push for me. 6.87 miles 

PM- Hot run starting at Dinosaur park up to Cottonwood Cove. Added after Marieta couldn't stand the heat. 4.44 miles

PM- I woke up from a nap to some rain. So Marieta and I went out the door and explored the vulture trail and got up looking over Bloomington. 4.34 miles

AM- Sandbergs with the boys. Gabe did a pretty nice dive into the pond. Branched off with Taiven, Parker, and Porter for level 1 minutes. Then I added and found the level 3 boys. I wanted to hit about 8 miles so I went to extend again and got rained on with no clouds in the sky. It was pretty neat. 8.02 miles 

PM- Running out by Sand Mountain then some swimming at the dam. It was pretty full with some cliff jumping opportunities. Then a jog back to the car. 3.41 miles

AM- Fun race this morning with the team! My goal was to be right around 12 minutes. The Carbon Xs felt great when I was running fast. I mixed in with Dane, Gary, Grant, and Trey. I would've liked to run another mile to see how I would've handled it. A 2 mile race is foreign to me. Added with Jason, Hyrum, Scottie, and Holt. 9.51 miles

AM- 1 mile warm up by myself. Then a 90 minute run with the top girls. Best run of the week for sure! I ran with Brinley, Pyper, Alli, Jenna, Adri, Emma, Maddy, Kennis, Kyanne, Allison, and Allen. I had one goal, keep the girls together. The run was more downhill on the way out and tougher uphill on the way back. I did my best to motivate and keep the group together. I helped the girls stay focused on the present (something that really helped me too). It was great! I've enjoyed my runs with the girls. It takes more effort on my part to socialize and motivate but it's a good challenge. We started to lose our solid group at around 55 minutes so we did some refocusing. Some refocused, others found excuses. I'm going to remember this run for a while. 11.07 miles 

PM- Tired 25 catching up to different groups. 2.59 miles

Hill run with the team. I started with Coach Quinn and the upper JV boys. Then I floated around with different groups and encouraged group running. Found the varsity girls for the turn around and had some good conversations with them and Zack DT. Then I ran back up the road and ran a little with Scottie and Dave. 7.13 miles 
 

I really enjoyed this years camp! I put a lot of effort into being positive and helping kids enjoy themselves! I also dominated KamJam with Coach Quinn (14-1). I was a part of a Cinderella Story volley run with Little B, Nathan B, and JD. We lost in the finals.....but we got revenge on Gabe and Jason for being traitors. I'm excited for the season! I'm positive we will make the best of it!

AM- Started at Tropic Reservoir and headed towards one of the few single track trails in the area (that I’m aware of). There was some good uphill pushing to Keyhole Arch. It wasn’t anything crazy but I had a hard time breathing on the hills. I walked a couple of times. Then I stopped and meditated in the shade. I refocused and continued on without having to walk. Added some mileage after I got back to the reservoir. Swam in a creek to cool off. 9.32 miles 

PM- Took Marieta to Keyhole Arch and made a loop out of it back to the ATV. I took off down the road until Marieta picked me up. I pushed hard for half a mile at a sub 6 minute pace. 4.31 miles
