In my freshmen year, I lettered in both track and cross country. I also got the Rookie of the Year Award in cross country, and the Freshmen of the Year Award in track. At regions for XC I was 7th. At state I was 65th. In track at regions I placed 3rd in the mile and 2nd in the 2 mile. At state I was 17th in the mile and 13th in the 2 mile.

Sophomore year I was a cross country captain and I lettered again. I was 3rd at regions and 12th at state. At track regions I was 3rd in the mile and the 2 mile. I also anchored the winning medley relay team.

Junior year I got a stress fracture about a month before the cross country season started, but made a great comeback with a 2nd place finish at regions.  At state I placed 6th, and I broke 19 minutes for the second time in my racing history.  Team captain again. In track I shattered my old PRs and was doing well until I got a stress reaction.  After 3 weeks off I built my strength back up and performed well at state, earning 4th in the 1600 and 5th in the 3200.  After that, I was invited to the Great Southwest Track Meet in Albuquerque, where I took 5th.

My senior year in cross country I was a captain again, this time with Amanda and Natalie.  This season I was injury free so I got to run competitively at invites.  At state I took 3rd.  At Footlocker Western Regionals I outkicked a girl on the track to finish 10th, which qualified me for nationals the next weekend.  I beat both of the girls who had beat me at state in that race.  At nationals I took 22nd and beat 6 of the girls who had beat me at regionals.  Going into the outdoor season the first Invitational I attended was the Davis Super Meet where I qualified for state in the 1600 and the 3200, and I broke the meet record for the 3200 in an 11:01.29, the previous record was an 11:17.  I had a strong finish to my senior season and finally claimed a state title.  I ran the fastest 1600 and 3200 at state for any division, claiming the double crown in those events, and earning the athlete of the year award :)

Now in college, I run for the University of Utah.  I lettered my freshman season of cross country, and made it to regionals in the 5k in track.

Sophomore year I improved in cross country.  In track I raced the 1500, 5k, 800, 10k, and the mile of the DMR before repeating the 5k at conference and then the 10k at regionals.  Placed 28th behind a lot of seniors... so nationals next year!!

This week I've been wanting to make sure I get some good core work in so that my lower back will stop hurting.  So I made a rule that I need to do the core first so that I don't run out of time later or get too busy with the kids.  This morning and yesterday morning were devoted to core instead of running.  Tonight I went for a run... after eating dinner at Zupa's.  It did not sit well and I had to stop and walk twice.  I guess I don't have that food tolerance like I used to, I guess that's something that needs training too.  Anyhow, I'm glad I at least got out for a short run.

Evening run in the neighborhood.  I nearly forgot how much nicer running in the mornings in the summer is, not only because of the cooler temperature but the creepy people aren't out.  There were 4 teenagers, 2 on bikes, along 500e and the bikers would bike up to me and back to their friends repeatedly... I was glad when I finally lost them when I turned up 2100s.  I ran up to 900e, then over to 3300s and home. 7:40 average pace!  A welcome surprise after Tuesdays run.  I have been lifting twice a week and I think having the extra leg muscle strength helps.  Another welcome surprise, my back didn't hurt at all!  Core makes a huge difference too.

Family run today!  As the day went on and we still hadn't gone running I was feeling a bit frustrated about not having a routine and missing the days when 12 miles every day was no problem and I had all the time in the world.  But I'm glad we were able to make it a family run.  It's challenging to find a balance.  And hard not to feel guilty for wanting some time to myself to just run and actually train so I can do some summer road races.  It's difficult to want to run alone though when your daughter in the stroller is saying "I'm coming, Daddy!  Are you coming, Mama?" Yes.  I'm coming.  I'm pushing the stroller so you'll always be a step ahead of me, but I'm coming.  I pushed the stroller to 2.1 when Jesse turned around.  Then I kept going out until I was at 23 minutes.  Dropped 24 seconds on my average pace after Jesse took the stroller.  5.16 total.  And I saw Demetrio when we were finishing.
