Running Accomplishments:

1600m: 4:27 (Utah 5A State Championship 2015)

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 running

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

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 get healthy and then run consistently.

Gonna start running a little more often, but probably not a ton more total.

Dropped wenda off to work and ran home. Cold and I'm out of shape. Averaged just under 7:15.

Averaged 6:12 and opened with a 5:15 mile uphill. Wasn't planning on that, kind of surprised I ran that fast. Finals are over, glad this semesters classes are over. By far the least interesting class set I've taken in college. But next semester is going to be great, two legal studies classes, on history of psych class, bowling, astronomy, and some credit hours from being a TA.
