Personal:

Freshman running for Southern Utah University, I ran for Alta high school and was trained by Coach Murphy, he is a great coach, one of the best there is. Served an lds mission in Montreal Canada. I want to be a coach in the future! I'm also Swiss so I want to compete for Switzerland internationally.

Achilles isn't healing with rest. In fact it seems to be spreading, my calf has been feeling it recently. These happenings are most unwelcome, but theres nothing to do but ice it, try to rest it, and pray it gets better soon. Right now I'm just concentrating on finishing this semester strong, if I can finish these last 9 days strong I will have the highest gpa I've ever acheived! Only one A- away from a 4.0! But I need to stay strong for these final projects and finals.
