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.

Total Distance

Today was the all city meet. It was actually quite small. We did a mile warmup, and then did strides.

In the race I started out pretty good, and the first lap I was 3rd. But then I crashed and I started thinking negatively and then people were passing me, making me feel no better. There was a girl I was fighting with for about a half mile, and eventually the fight ended. I was actually the one to fall off, but then Bill was yelling at me with just a little bit left, and it woke me up, so I started to try to catch people again. I was able to catch the girl, but it turns out Sarah was the next person (actually a group) but they were pretty far ahead. So I didn't catch them . :(

I really think I could've done much better, but I am stuck with what I did. I know now how to fight people, and not to give up. I hope this will help me do better in races. Every race is a learning experience after all.

Then we did the course backwards for cool down, 1 lap of it at least. Then 5 hill strides and core. Then we played Sharks and Minnows for like 5 minutes. 

I saw my soccer coach today... my old one of course. I don't play soccer any more. He was surprised that I chose to run, of all the sports in the world, and not stick with soccer. Honestly, I'm kinda surprised myself. I actually almost kept playing soccer, but then ended up switching to Cross Country. In fact, he called it "Torture."But I like it :) It's weird to think that I might not have run. Actually, not only that but I almost moved to Bountiful, fun fact. Guess it's just meant to be :)
