Personal:

I ran for Alta high school and was trained by Coach Murphy, he is a great coach, one of the best there is. I ran for Southern Utah University for a year or two. I am currently a doctoral student at Bowling Green State University studying industrial organizational psychology. Right now my main goals are to stay healthy and run consistently.

Rough go of 5k number 2, probably a combination of fatigue, not yet being acclimated to the high altitude, and most importantly being out of shape.

Ran the 5k course but I'd left my garmin charger at Jake's yesterday, so I used my phone to time myself. My phone died with about 500/600 meters left. The last time I looked at strava was around the 2 mile marker, and I was at a little over 11:30 so I had been doing alright. Walk/jogged home.

Oh well, I can run the course until saturday so I'll just do it again. Good to make me run more anyways.

Jake challenged me to a race the day after getting home from a 2-day 25 hour drive, I also hadn't run in 2 weeks. Needless to say, it did not to well. 5:30 about. I have a virtual Thanksgiving 5k race tomorrow so hopefully this will get my muscles nice and warmed up haha. If I break 18 I will be pretty excited.
