Ran on the SUU Cross Country/Track and Field teams

8th fastest 1600m runner in Alta history

 

2014-2015 Alta Track Athlete of the Year

8th place and 1st in age division at 2014 Jupiter Peak Steeplechase (16 mile La Sportiva championship race) time of 2:02:47. Sprained my ankle with a mile left, hobbled to the finish as fast as I could.

 

3rd place and 1st in age division at the 2015 Leadville Heavy Half, a 15.5 mile course that started at over 10,000 ft and had over 4500 meet elevation gain, tons of shifty rocky areas, ice, snow, rivers, and an out and back with 500+ runners on a narrow path at the top. I ran 2:13:09 and beat a guy from the Junior National Mountain Running team.

 

Short-Term Running Goals:

Finish top 10 at the Spartan Super -Not sure how realistic this is for my first race but I feel I have a good body type for the event and I am training hard.

Qualify for the Boston Marathon

Win the Cottonwood Heights Thanksgiving 5k

Study really hard for the GRE and LSAT

Long-Term Running Goals:

Keep running

Keep breaking 5:00 in the mile at least once per year

Run the Boston Marathon at least once

Personal:

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 ran for Southern Utah University for over a year but have decided college track and xc isn't something I want to do, working out on my own is more enjoyable and helpful to suceeding in my academic goals. I still love running and plan on doing it as long as I can. Pinched nerves in my feet are kind of bothering me on longer runs, hopefully I can slowly and carefully increase mileage and not have to get steroid injections. I will graduate suu with a degree in psychology spring of 2019, after which I plan on getting my a Masters or PhD in industrial organizational psychology.
