I was born in Spring, Texas in 2000 but now live in Sandy, Utah. Ran for Alta High School under the coaching of THE Rob Murphy, one of the best coaches out there. I come from a running family of 8. I am a member of the LDS Church and I'm a Running Junkie.

AM: Salt City Mile

It was my first time racing in a while and I'm really happy about it. I was able to fork out a 5:07 which wasn't what I was looking for, but I'm still happy about. I went out strong with the lead group, but I think I went out too fast. I surged just a bit to try and gain an advantage of the group and it slowed me down on the "3 lap" of the mile, but I finished strong. It was fun to go out and race and I also made a couple of new friends. Can't wait to see improvement in my next race.

PM: 7 miles

Ran out to the gully and ran the gully long run. I guess that it's super popular on Labor Day, because I either had to stop or change my course for about 10 horses. Either way I still ended up averaging about a 7:40 pace. For whatever reason (I think I ate too close to my run) my stomach was upset to whole run, but I ended up handling it pretty well. Overall I am surprised how fast my fitness level has grown. I didn't feel like I was straining myself at all during that run like I have recently and my shins have be pain free for a while now. I can't wait to start bumping up the pace and mileage in the upcoming weeks.
