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.

I was in Ghana on a humanitarian trip for 2 weeks and didn't run once. Walked a lot and played some soccer. Attempted to do core, but there were chiggers in the carpet and grass, and the beds were too wobbly, so I gave up quick, haha. So outta shape. 5 miles with the few people who showed up. Golf Course backwards at 8:55 ap. It was really cold and I couldn't breathe too well, haha.

Ran church run with Arianna. Super chill, super sore. Around 8 minute average pace. Didn't want to do any races right after Africa, haha. Fun run, though.

In the morning, I went up Birch, but saw some of the guys and turned around with them. Most of them ran the 15k yesterday, so their pace was pretty slow. Went down smithfield, then I turned home. Golf Course hill killed me, but it was still a solid run. 8:20 ap, so still slow.

In the evening, Conner wanted to run. I had just eaten some coconut cream pie, but running with Conner sounded fun. I'm not near in as good of shape as he is, haha. 3x around the block. Glad we stopped to talk to a neighbor 1/2 way or I'd have died. My body was tense after that, but it was still a solid run. Probably the fastest I've ran since track, haha. 6:53 ap. My shins and calves and back hurt, but  such a fun time.

Gold Course wih Harmony. Arianna was with us, but ran ahead mostly. I was just dead and the hill killed me. Fun time chatting, though. 8:26 ap. Core after with Conner.

Glad Arianna got me to come run. We did lower to upper canal. I felt really good the first 3 miles, but not so much after. The trail seemed longer than normal, but we went easy and had fun. My body's still pretty dead and I haven't decently trained since track, haha. Went to the end of the trail. The downhill felt good.
