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.
Mile out and back on main twice. I’d only planned on 2 since it was late but once I got into it I was more awake than I thought and felt like going more. My stomach was bugging a bit in mile 2 but it eased up after a mile
