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, but it is weird being a junior (I don't feel that old).

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.

It was iHop day, so we had to do beast (special request from Rachel). It was a good workout, though. We warmed up a mile to the hill. Storrs broke us up by mile time, so I was stuck with the lead pack of boys and no girls. We did 8 sets. Splits were: 1:05, 1:10, 1:12, 1:12, 1:14, 1:14, 1:16, 1:14. I would always start with the few front boys, get passed, then run alone, which mentally broke me. One of the sets, I stuck right behind Carson (I think), and it felt plenty easier. I remember freshman year, hitting a 1:12 was way fast, so there was some improvement, I guess. I mentally didn't have it today, though. I may have been better if I stuck with the girls, hopefully next time. We ran one more "mediocre" set, but I went 30 seconds slower, lol. Cooled down back nice and easy. 5.5 miles now, so I'll run later. iHop was fun!

At practice, we started on tree of life, then did cedarridge extended backwards. It was fun. Clara was at the front of the pack, while Arianna and I started in the back. We had to sprint a bit to catch up. The lower canal never smells good, and today was not an exception. It was a fun run, and we made sure to stay on the right (left) side of the road, lol. We slowed the pace the last mile, but it was a good run. It took us under 40 minutes, so it was under 8 minute average pace.

In the evening, I did 4 up the canyon. It was nice and easy, and felt good. Can't find my watch, but I think it was at a 7:40 average pace. Really chill, but I enjoyed the run.

We ran to the west side of smithfield and did powerlines for practice (Tempo, ipace, all out, recover). It was me, Arianna, and Clara who stuck together the whole time. On the recoveries, I went extra slow. Clara would walk and go the exact same speed, haha. When we got to the gravel, it got harder. Coming back was even worse. It was easier back on the road. None of us were feeling amazing, and the smells of cache valley didn't help. It was a good time. On our cool down back as a team, we learned how to run in a single file line (because we're really good at getting in the way of vehicles). It was a good time.
