Junior at SUU majoring in Exercise Science and minoring in Psychology. Served an LDS mission in Independence, Missouri. Planning on graduating with my bachelor’s degree in Spring 2020 then going to PTA school after. Haven’t decided yet but I might take out my fifth year of eligibility. If I do, I’ll declare psychology as my second major and work on that my 5th year. We will see how running is going, if I’m doing really well then I’d like to stay and see what I can do. This is an opportunity not a lot of people get so I want to make the most of it and chase down my dreams. We will see what life brings.

Our season really flew by...

Warmed up about 2.5 miles, strides at the line.

Started out a little fast, some Clearfield girls went fast next to me and surprised me but I knew they wouldn't hold. Stuck with Millika for a little over a mile, our split was about 6:02-6:03. Someone said to Millika "don't break" or something like that coming down Bessie which shocked me. That was when I realized I never really believed I'd be able to beat her. I wanted to, but never believed I could. I felt great. Then we turned and coming up the apple tree hill my legs started to hurt. Millika gapped me a tiny bit, I closed it on the downhill, but on Miranda she gapped me again and this time I didn't close it. I should have done a speed change or something up the hill, I noticed I was stronger at hills than she was. I just didn't want to hurt. After she gapped me I crashed and burned. Okay it wasn't that drastic but I felt like I was going so slow, she was probably only racing for place so she must've slowed down too. I kept working to try to catch her until about 2 miles which was about where I decided I wasn't going to win and settled for second. I shouldn't have done that. I know if I would have sucked it up and accepted that it was going to hurt I could've had a much better race and possibly beaten her. I didn't want it enough to be honest, I realize now I was fine with second.

Kind of mad at myself for not pushing through the pain like I did at Nebo, and even Park City. I guess there were more people in those races and felt more like a race than region did, but still. Then again I wasn't very confident for it, the hills intimidated me. And they weren't bad so why I don't really know. But now the past is in the past and we've got to look towards State. I'm feeling way more confident towards State than I did for region, which is kind of weird. But I know I've worked hard and I know I'm going to be motivated by it being my last high school cross country race. And I know there will be lots of competition and I won't be top 10 unless I hurt. We've done speed on the course. I'm stronger at hills than I realized and I will be dropping mileage. I've still got a week of training to tune everything up and make sure State is amazing.

I did a mile cool down.
