Personal:

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.

Ran with gc. 7 1/2 minutes of core. Workout on the track. Just pushed Rachel, Abby, and PJ. 4x800, 5x400 @ I pace with a minute recovery. Then, 6x200 @ Rpace with 200 recovery. Rachel took a drink break, so we ran one extra 200 to push her. I only had my gps watch, so getting splits was rough. They ran them all fast, which was awesome. It's fun being able to still run with people, and it's probably the only social life I get, haha.
