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.

Went up Smithfield Canyon with my dad. My mind wandered the entire time, but it was fun. Came back down on Sunnyside. 8:30 average pace and felt really good.

3.5 in the morning with Ruby. I was hoping to go more, but my stomach wasn't feeling great. Super slow. 10 minutes of core right after.

3 in the afternoon with sv. Played some 10 dot dot at Mack Park. It was pretty fun.

Watched the ridgeline @ sv meet, helped out a bit. Ran 3 in the smog with Ruby up birch.  Didn't bring a watch, but I'm assuming my pace was slow, haha.

Found a chance to run in the middle of the afternoon. Went up the canyon. My miles were 7:22, 7:54, 7:37, 7:26, 7:57. Barely kept the last (uphill) mile under 8.

5 up Birch in the heat. Tried to keep my average pace under 9 going up, but I had a snake encounter. I didn't see it until I was inches away and did what any teenage girl would do. Scream and back up super quickly. It was just a yellow and black garter, but I was so in the zone, haha. I waited for it to cross the road and caught my breath, then kept going up. I was pretty paranoid after that, so I didn't go so as far up as I was hoping. Kept my average pace going up under 9 and enjoyed the downhill back.
