When I was young, I ran local fun runs with my family, but nothing more. I watched my dad, mom, and 2 older brother begin running and decided to try it out. During the spring of 6th grade, I ran 3 miles with my dad and have loved running ever since. I ran local 5ks and even a half marathon. In 7th grade I watched Conner, my older brother, run cross country and decided that I wanted to try it.

Freshman year: I did both cross country and track and was on varsity. I didn't understand what I had gotten myself into, but I enjoyed figuring everything out. I made many friends and continued to enjoy running.

Sophmore year: In the summer, I trained extra hard. During cross country, I noticed a ton of improvement. Track also went well, and I still loved running. 

Junior year: In the summer, I got a lot of miles in, but cross country was difficult. There were good and bad races. Many of my teammates had graduated, which was different. I'm happy with the season. I worked super hard during the winter making track amazing. It went well, but I had a foot injury. Gladly, I still ran at state and PRed like crazy.

Senior year: The beginning of cross country went really well. I improved from summer training. I didn't do as well as I'd hoped at state and haven't really been motivated since. Hopefullly, after hard training, track will be a super fun experience.

I enjoy running, playing piano, painting, skiing, and hiking. Life is totally worth living. Running is a good meditation that I love. I am LDS, and I run for Sky View High School.

Rachel, Arianna, and I did golf course backwards. Birch was pretty slick, but it was fun. It was a good, easy run. We flew down 6th which was really fun. When we got back to sv, we talked to the guys and our new coach, which was cool. They convinced us to do 6 strides with them. I don't feel ready enough to race tomorrow, but I was convinced to and I'm not sure what to think about it.

I tried tempo, but it didn't turn out good at all. Warmed up a mile, then went a quarter mile until there was dry roads. The first mile felt decent, my time was a 6:36. The next mile wasn't too great, a bit under 7. I finished the half mile, which was right at a 3:30. I haven't done a workout since before footlocker, so I'm still getting back into things. Cooled down an icy quarter mile, then did some core in the evening.

I planned to run, but ended up rock climbing with Sarah, instead. It was fun.

Might as well get back on the blog, again, haha. It will definitely motivate me. I got my tonsils out a few weeks ago, and it took a bit of time to recover and get back. Ran to sv and back. It was super slick and super slow. 8:20ish average pace. My shoes were dry the whole time until I hit a puddle near my house, haha.
