Running Accomplishments:

Freshmen Year-  When I started on Uintah I really didn't know how I would do. Ran a 5k or two and then just started running with the team. The older kids really liked me and called me the good freshmen. I then made varsity, which kinda ticked Nathan off but I was happy with it. Time trials I ran like 18 flat. Along with Mason,Connor, and other people. The first few races went really good then I went to the doctor and he told me to get fat because he thought I was too skinny so the second part of my season was pretty crappy. I didn't get to go to state and was ticked because Nathan beat me at region.


Sophomore Year- This was the year that I got that dark Cherokee blood running through me and then I decided to just haul butt the whole season because I was ticked at what happened to me freshman year. The first few meets of cross country and the whole season was great. I was able to go to state and got a low seventeen for 3 miles. And track went better too. Because normally I love cross country more than track. It was a pretty good year for this Cherokee kid.

AM- Raced the San Diego Half today!!! All I can say is that was the best half marathon I have ran. Weather was perfect, the course was great (except for the 1.5 mile uphill). After I got a 5 am wake up, because the race started at 7. I was pretty tired after waking up at 3 am yesterday and 5am today. Anyways mile warmup, dynamics, and it was time for the race. There were about 7,400 runners in the half marathon and around 2,000 in the 5k. I didn't know until yesterday if I wanted to do the half or the 5k, because of my plantar fasciitis. I couldn't resist, so I just did the half. Gun goes off and I felt good except for my foot. First mile 6:02. Perfect pace. 6:10, 6:13, 6:18, and 6:21 for miles 2-5. Hit the 10k in 38:25. This is when my foot really started to ache, so I decided to slow the pace to about 6:30's from then on. Then there was about a 1.5 mile incline which slowed me down some. After that I just wanted to enjoy the race and the weather that was super great. Finished in a slower time, but had a blast running in this race. I felt I could keep that pace for another 5-10 so it was good training for the Ogden Marathon in May. Good times and a ton of fun.

Great job under tough conditions with your foot. I ran the San Diego 5K a few years ago, and it was a downhill screamer. Good choice to do the half.
