I ran Cross Country and Track at Southern Utah University for almost 3 years then transferred to Brigham Young University—Idaho where I am currently enrolled. I also served a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in Independence, Missouri.

VA loop again. I was a bit tired from the start so I decided I’d run slow at a comfortable pace. My first two miles were around 8:10. Then I picked it up, not really meaning to. I just ran and didn’t worry about pace. After a little bit I knew I’d gradually picked it up and decided to go for it, remaining relaxed. My last two miles were 6:50 and 7:10. I think it was easier to go faster today because my legs weren’t as sore or tired as they were yesterday. Ended up averaging 7:35. 50% pace! I was really surprised. Turns out I still can go 50% pace when I feel good :)

Side note: I saw an advertisement for SUU on one of the city buses! I was surprised. I think SUU is becoming more well known or maybe getting bigger. I never saw advertisements like that during high school. I didn’t even know SUU existed until Coach Houle recruited Angie her senior track season, my junior year. She ran with my high school team that season. And even then, when she’d received a full-ride scholarship, I didn’t think I’d end up at SUU. Yet here we are! Haha. I love SUU.

If you love SUU so much, why don't you....? Never mind. I already made that joke :)
