I run for SUU and I'm going into my third year. I took a year off between my first and second years to serve a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in Independence, Missouri. NCAA eligibility-wise I’m a redshirt sophomore and I’m majoring in Exercise Science.

Road Race!! I was on Paul’s team and we won! Oh yeah!

Mile warmup and strides before starting

Just went out with the group trying to stay relaxed. I’ve always gone out quick in the past and I decided to try to keep the first mile more under control this year. Also the course has always been like .1 short in years past but this year it was exactly 4 miles. It’s slightly downhill which is nice. Came through the mile right behind Brighton and Sam, then tried not to let them go. Eventually fell off and just tried to stay positive and work through it. Told myself it was gonna hurt no matter what so might as well run hard, there was no getting out of it. That helped me finish and continue to work hard. 

Splits were 5:51, 6:12, 6:45, 6:47. So like 5:51, 12:03, 18:48, 25:38. Ish, the splits were all high.

Feel good about it, worked hard, did what I could. I never gave up and worked through it, tried shutting off my mind and gliding through and that helped me not focus on the pain so much. Started counting down the minutes left and kept the end in sight, helped me to continue on. When Haley came and passed me I sort of fought but gave up quick, more just wanted to stay relaxed but I should’ve gone with her. Struggled the last mile and a half but I stayed consistent so there’s that. The last mile I started feeling some pain in my femur I think so I might be cross training tomorrow and see how it feels on Monday. It was very minor so I think I just need to get new shoes and be a little more careful, give it some rest and I’ll be fine.

Overall I’m happy with how it turned out! Compared to last year I was 1 second slower,  but that’s not really true because it was longer this year. The full 4 miles, all the other times I’ve run it it’s been about 3.9. So it’s still about a 45 second improvement.
