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- Solid workout today, forgot to charge my garmin last night, so it was totally dead when I woke up, so no strava data for today's run. I had to go over to Lapoint today to help my grandparents mow and put some gravel down on their rock garden. Decided to go over early, and do a workout on their dirt road, which is about a mile down and back. 2 mile warmup, then 3 x 1 mile w/ 2:30 recovery in between. I wanted them to feel hard, but also be able to have good form and not break down. I have no idea what my splits were, because of my watch being dead, and I didn't have a stop watch, but I do think that they were at a good effort level. Finished off, by running around different streets of Lapoint for a good cooldown.

AM- 3 miles shakeout. 7:21 average pace. I am running the Dino Half Marathon tomorrow, but it isn't really a race that I care to perform super well at, so it might turn into a good progression long run.

RACE- Decided to finally run the Dino Half Marathon, because, even though I live in Vernal, I haven't ever ran the Dino. Got my packet, ate a good dinner, and made sure to get to bed early. Woke up at 4:30, and got to the bus pickup by 6. I am glad that I waited for one of the last buses to get to the starting line, because it was a little chilly up in the canyon. Half mile warmup with dynamics, and then we were off. I didn't really know exactly what I wanted, time-wise, for this race, but I just decided to go with whatever my body felt like doing. From the start of the race, two guys made a big surge to the front, and kept the lead. After about 3 miles in, I passed one of the front runners, putting me in third, which is the position I held for practically the rest of the race. I was really happy with how consistent my splits were throughout the race, because I didn't think that 6:00-6:05 miles were going to happen today. Both lungs and legs felt really good for practically the entire race, and I caught up with the guy who was in second place with about a mile to go. I then maintained my pace, and came in with a time of 1:19:51, which is my third sub 1:20 half. Overall a really good race put on by the Runtastic group, and after the race, I ran into Rob Murphy, who I didn't even realize was running the Dino Half. Really nice guy, and quite the fast runner for his age group. What I really love about running, is being able to be a part of a community, and having the opportunity to connect with runners from different backgrounds and talent levels. Overall a very fun race!

AM- Went on a 2 mile walk with my dad and the dog. Had some good conversations, while Pickles chased some bird, chipmunks, and even a deer. Might be going fishing later today for my birthday, so that should be fun. Besides that, no running, barbeque, cake, and ice cream.

AM- Been coming down with a cold since last Thursday, and it was at its worst yesterday. Decided to Crossfit today, and get in some good core, weights, and finished off with a 32 minute amrap of double unders and assault bike intervals. I will try to run tomorrow as long as my cold is getting better.

AM- 15 mile long run this morning. Legs were a little bit heavy and tired, but weather was nice and got it in. I decided to do my long run today, because I will be out of town this weekend, and I don't know how much running I will be able to get in.

AM- No warmup, 3 mile tempo: 6:14, 6:10, 6:14. Should have done a warmup before, but I was trying to see how I would feel without a mile warmup or so. Definitely feel better with a solid warmup. Finished off with an easy 6 miles afterward.
