Personal:

Current student at BYU-Idaho and former runner for Southern Utah University. I served as a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in the Missouri Independence Mission, also known as the Alpha and Omega mission.

I want to remember the things that brought me success as a runner and I hope to always live by them:

First off, I believed it was possible to do well and perhaps even run in college. I began by wondering if I had the ability, then I started to believe it, until one day I knew that with the hand of the Lord in my life, anything was possible.

Secondly, I worked hard. I put in the effort. I knew I would only get out what I put in. I wanted to make my dream a reality, so I dedicated myself and gave it my all.

Third, I strived for a positive attitude. True mental toughness is always looking for the positive and choosing to press on, especially when things are difficult.

Fourth, I determined to never give up, to endure through even the most painful of times. 

Running has taught me so much. I hope to continue to apply the things I've learned to everyday life and any other things that become important to me. 

Now I'm transitioning to the post-collegiate athlete life. What a journey it's been.

Felt good today considering. I was still tired but felt much improved from the past little while. Running has felt weird for a while, my form just hasn’t been quite right, or at least not the same as it had been when I was running with my team. But I think it was because I hadn’t run for a while and was just getting into the rhythm of it, and because I’ve been going slower? Idk. But today I went 50% pace for the last mile or so (7:15-7:45), and my stride felt smoother and I was back to the zone I usually get to in a distance run. I like running 50% pace because it actually gets my respiration rate up, but my legs are weak. I think more time running and maybe weights once I get back to Cedar will help me to hold it longer. Anyways, today it was windy again. I did VA loop, 7:52 average. My legs are a bit tired/sore from the last couple days, but I only stopped twice today! And one of those was just getting stuck at the stoplight I always get stopped at :) Improvement.
