Long-Term Running Goals:

After my mission (tentatively June 2017-June 2019), which will be two years of virtually no running, I want to build my fitness back up stronger than it ever was before. Then when I think I am ready I may attempt for a spot on the USU roster again. We'll see how long I have to do that based on age and eligibility and stuff. If I don't ever do it that's fine, I'll still have a lot of fun with running. Some times I want to beat someday:

15:30 5K 

1:10 HM

2:40 Marathon

I have a fantasy in my mind of really breaking through in the marathon and making the olympic trials but we'll see about that haha. That would honestly be a dream come true. I definitely want to run the Boston Marathon at least once. Also maybe when I'm old but not too old I might try a 100 miler to qualify for Western States. 




Freshman at Utah State University. I still have not chosen a major. Just graduated from Logan High School in May 2016. One thing I enjoy aside from running is music, weather it's playing or listening. I am member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, and plan on serving a two-year mission after two semesters of school.

Pretty fun stuff this morning at the Shamrock Shuffle, nothing special, but fun! Woke an hour later than I wanted to and hustled to get the Smithfield, got there half an hour before the race, which was enough time to sign up and get a 1.5 jog in, no time to do drills unfortunately. The start was stupid, definitely a local fun run, because we were just standing there and all of the sudden someone said GO! and we went. 4 of us (all sporting HJP jerseys!) immediatley went to the front and and then Hayden and Eric separated from me and Austin Hunt (fun fact he's my second cousin). I dropped Austin after 30 more seconds. First half mile was uphill so I kind of tried to power through that, so the effort was hard right from the start. The course was just through farm fields so it was pretty boring, and I ran alone about 50m back from Eric the entire race. Had 1.5 of downhill then the last mile was uphill and into a headwind. Splits were 5:45, 5:30, 6:03. In the last mile I was not feeling it and just tried to maintain an okay pace. Not a strong race for me haha but I've done nothing at 5K pace in months (only 2 miles under 6 before this race, counting the ISU meet). That was probably my last 5K in loooong time, and I'm okay with that, those are way more fun when you're trained for it. Cooled down after awards first with the Ridgeline guys then with Austin. Beautiful, beautiful sunny day for a race!

Okay run today, I ran from my car in the Spectrum parking lot after class, took 6th east and got on the canal trail THE CANAL TRAIL for the first time in ages, and it was flawless no snow, mud anything. Wasn't feeling that great though. Took a bathroom break at the water plant (felt awkward walking all the way to the end of a hall past people working in offices) then headed down Sumac till I hit the bottom of Cliffside, then (I had planned this) took a shot at getting the CR, and looking at it now I was on pace for it but I had a palpatation about halfway up so I threw in the towel and headed down toward the water lab trail, ran halfway down and busted my butt sprinting up it (I had forgotten the segment included the flat part of the trail too) then jogged up to the BST switchbacks and sprinted the quarter mile up those, but apparently I stopped either in the beginning or end of the segment, third time that's happened there! Next time I'll really get it. Then cut across the country club, sprinting because there might have been people golfing, luckily I didn't see anyone. Took the Lundstrom canal and headed back to the car. Didn't feel too great today, my hip imbalance felt extremely un-balanced, but glad to get the miles in and a little bit of hill work, maybe it won't feel as bad next time. 7:23 ap.

Good run on a beautiful morning with Sylvan. It's funny, the same thing happened as last time pretty much, I showed up to our meeting spot 15 minutes and assumed he was long gone, so just kept going and hit the river trail, but then we just happened to intersect when I crossed the road to the Icon trail. So that was lucky, again. So then I had some nice relaxed miles with Sylvan as we had good conversation. I had brought a headlamp but I stashed it under some leaves after a half mile. Sky was clear blue and the sun peaked up at the end of the run, just a great morning. And I got more distance than planned, which is great! Always easier with a friend. 7:25 ap.

AM: Wow, alot happened in this run. Parked at BSFC side of the Deer Fence. Beautiful, warm morning, even with then shade of the mountains. There was a sign that said the trail was closed from December to the second Saturday of April, but I pretty much ignored it, I know, dumb (it is located in a wildlife management area). So I was running for maybe 3 minutes, and going up a hill staring at the trail in front of me and then I came this injured but alive deer laying in the middle of the trail, and it flinched and stared at me. I just kept going. Saw multiple dead deer on the trail. 3 miles in I heard a loud howling that sounding like a thousand demons emerging from hell, so scary. Apparantly there's a coyote farm below the fence, but I didn't know that. Then I got to the highlight of the run. I had been planning to go for the CR on Millville hill (a nasty .8 mile climb), I went for and I got it, crushed the the person haha (I once held it but got moved down to fourth, but justice has been served) Crossed Prov canyon and then I was actually in a nonrestricted trail. Just took it easy going out there. Saw Dillon Maggard and some other Aggies so that was cool. Hit Dry 7.5 miles out and found the water bottle I stashed yesterday, glad I did that. Headed back and tried to keep a decent pace. Started to get a nasty blister on the right pinky toe after I crossed Prov, it only got worse and worse especially running back down that climb. Hit Millville canyon and the DNR was waiting for me (basically law enforcement) so they talked to me a bit, and would have let me off with a warning, but they were nice enough to give me a ride back to my car, and THEN he asked for my ID and gave me a citation, so that blows. My bad though for ignoring the sign. (saw a few other people on that trail though too).  Jogged one more mile for 13. We'll see if I'll have to return those shoes or not, I liked them other than the blister problem. 7:37 ap, so not bad especially for having less downhill then uphill.

PM: Well, after my longest work day ever (9.5 hours) I hit the road for  2 or 3 miles, maybe four if I was feeling good, to make up for the shortened run this morning.This was just before midnight. Ran out towards the river trail then back through Willow Park. Felt pretty relaxed!Ended up going 4.5 then I did some strides which added to 5, so and 18 mile day and 64 mile week. Pretty happy with myself, just hope my body can recover for another good week of training next week.
