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!! 

 

Short-Term Running Goals:

 Run a 5k in under 18 minutes

Win state in the 1600 and 3200

Place in the top 5 at state in the 1600

This morning I went up to Drycreek and met my brother to go running.  I ran out 4 miles and back.  The first part of that run is a lot harder when you haven't warmed up by running from campus :P  I saw my brother again at about 4.5 miles, then again when we were done.

This morning Giselle and I warmed up around the bailiff and then did strides and drills on the track.  The workout was two 200s with equal jog recovery, then seven 400s with 90 second rest, and another two 200s.  For the first 200s I hit 36 and 37, then 1:18 for all of the 400s (talk about consistency!) and then 36, 36 for the last 200s.  I cooled down a bit on the bailiff with Giselle and then some on the road, and a few laps in the opposite direction on the track to end with 8 miles total for the day.

This morning I went for my run straight up 800s/Sunnyside up to Emigration Canyon.  Turned at 5 miles and ran back the same way.  Got my second lift of the week done afterwards, and then later got a massage from Tim.

This morning Giselle and I did our final workout before conference :)  We warmed up around bailiff and then did our strides and drills on the track.  The workout was four sets of 200, 200, 400 with equal jogs recovery.  My times were 35, 37, 1:15, 37, 37, 1:16, 37, 37, 1:15, 36, 38, 1:15.  We did them the opposite direction to switch it up a bit.  It was a great workout :)  Cooled down on bailiff and then on the road to finish at 8 total for the day.

After arriving at USC I went for a run with the girls.  I was with Amanda and Bekah for the first bit, but since they are racing tomorrow I ran the last 4 miles by myself to finish at 7 for the day.

This morning Giselle and I did our premeet :)  There was a road race going on right outside campus, so we just made some loops around the other part of campus to avoid it.  Finished with strides and drills on the warmup field, then treated ourselves to some of the snacks by the team tents :)  doesn't get much better than cold watermelon and grapes in the hot sun! :)
