When I was young, I ran local fun runs with my family, but nothing more. I watched my dad, mom, and 2 older brothers 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 didn't really have much motivation after that. Got my tonsils out in December which effected most of my winter training.Track season was super rough, my heart wasn't in it. My race times were all over the place.

I hope this summer and fall I can simply fall back in love with running by doing exciting trail runs and running because it's fun! Also, I'd like to stay in decent shape before leaving on my mission.

I enjoy running, playing piano, painting, skiing, and hiking. Life is totally worth living. Running my favorite meditation. I am LDS and ran for Sky View High School. I have been called to the Adriatic North Mission and leave on October 18, and I'm hoping to run in college when I return.

Like Tuesday, I was gonna run, but my plans got changed. I was ready, in my running clothes, but fell asleep on the couch the exact time it would've taken me to run my planned distance. Did a quick core workout, instead. Graduation was fun. Played some ping pong.

Ran later in the day, like around 8:30. It was still pretty warm. I was debating if I wanted to eat dinner before or after, and finally just went. I felt really good. Mile splits were 7:02, 7:00 (downhill), 7:50 (back up the hill), 7:25. I was still super sore from jumping lunges incorporated into my core workout yesterday. Fun staying out all night for graduation parties, but definitely lacking in the sleep department, lol.

Ran up Smithfield in 80 degrees, kinda regret. It was well worth it, but too hot. I got pretty stressed about pace the first quarter mile, but told myself that pace doesn't matter right now, just enjoy running. The run was fun until the last mile up when the heat really hit. Slowed down a ton. Turned around and took it really chill, making it a fun run. 8:20 average pace

Ran Sunnyside in the morning before getting my wisdom teeth out, so I think I'll be taking the rest of the week off, not positive. Fun to run early in the mornings, again. Pumped to start up, again, and build up mileage.

Chill run on lower canal through to upper canal with Rachel. Still a bit sore and felt some throbbing from my wisdom teeth, but it was a quality run, although we were only averaging 9 minute miles. I may run later if my jaw's feeling up to it, haha
