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 an LDS mission in Independence, Missouri. NCAA eligibility-wise I’m a redshirt sophomore and I’m majoring in Exercise Science. As of right now I’m planning on getting a Master’s in Sports Conditioning and Performance.

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.
