800: 1:59 (Time trial the last week of school, timed by Coach Murphy.)
Copper Hills Invitational 2015 1600m Champion.
Ran on the SUU Cross Country/Track and Field teams
8th fastest 1600m runner in Alta history (well 9th now)
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:
Fix my achilles and then run consistently
Backing off on short term goals for a minute, but I'd like to start training for marathons.
Long-Term Running Goals:
Keep breaking 5:00 in the mile at least once per year
Run the Boston Marathon at least once
Do Spartan again and finish well, without burning or spraining something
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 get healthy and then run consistently.
