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.

RACE- Awsome race and day overall today!! Woke up at 4am cause the race started at 6am. Jogged up to the starting line, and did about a 2 mile warmup total. Did a couple strides and headed over to the start. While on the starting line I saw quite a few people that I had seen before. Saw a few BYU guys, Sasha, and several people I knew. I was wearing my USA singlet today, and Jared Ward said that he liked my jersey. We got talking before the race and he wanted to pace with me. I didn't look at splits or the distance the entire race. Just had Jared pace me. When I finished I felt as though I could have gone much quicker and had more left in the tank. It's all good though, this was my first 10k so I didn't want to blow up the first few miles. Fun race, I think I'll do it again next summer if I can. I don't have a race for a while that I really care about so I will mostly be training and getting stronget

Always cool to pace an Olympian! You'll remember that one. Great race.
