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- Well, all I can say is that injuries happen in running. Whether you are young or old, it seems that some time in most people's running career, they are bound to end up with an injury at some point. Since about January, I have had hip pain and lock ups during many of my training runs, and I have just tolerated it since then. Strides and somewhat speed work would never feel quite right, and my overall stride and cadence hasn't felt good since December. I went for my goal pace from the gun, but my hip started to lock up and hurt almost immediately. Had to stop several times starting at about mile 8 or 9, and just sort of shuffled my way to the finish line. When I finished, my legs were not even tired, because of the slow pace, so I know that I will recover quite quickly from this marathon, which is one positive thing from this race. And even though it was a very disappointing race, I still tried my best to enjoy the race. Probably going to take some time off from serious training for a week or two, and just do some cross training, and maybe run only if I feel like it. First, I need to go to some chiropractor/specialist to get my hip feeling 100% again. Then I will focus on my summer/fall build up races!

Sorry about the injury issue. Sounds like a smart approach to the recovery.
