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.

Total Distance

Met the group at East and we ran down to Liberty and went the long way to the fountain on the sidewalk. Then changed shoes and went to the mile mark, or close to it cause the snow was covering the line. We ended up guessing where it was based on another mark on the other side of the sidewalk. So the distance could be a little off, but it's pretty close to 2 miles. We did 3 x 2 mile tempos, aiming for 12:30-13:00. I wasn't expecting 3, but ah well adding another wasn't that bad. It's good to know where I'm at. My times were 12:26 (6:09, 6:17), 12:58 (6:19, 6:39), 13:12 (didn't get my mile split this time around, 6:36 average). On the first I felt pretty good. I had debated going with Angie when she started to move but decided to tuck behind Bill and feel the pace. I fell off of Bill and Angie right after the mile on the second one, I just lost focus and then tried to pick it up again but found myself just maintaining the distance between us. The third I just kind of ran it which I know is bad. I should've tried harder to stay with Bill and Angie but I just kind of let them go. Meh. We did a half mile recovery in between each.
