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- Woke up pretty early, ate a light breakfast, and drove up to the starting line of the 5k. I was worried that I wasn't going to get to the start of the race, because of all the road blockage for the other races, but ended up not being a problem at all. Did a mile warmup around the neighborhoods and several drills and strides afterward. First two miles are downhill, 5:31 and 5:34 for those. Once it leveled out, my third mile was slower with a 5:47. The last stretch of this race doesn't have a significant amount of uphill, but after having the legs pounded on the downhill, I could definitely feel it. I need to work on being able to finish stronger in the last mile, because during most of my 5k races, I have been able to hold the pace that I would like to maintain for the about the first mile or two, and then the third mile is a huge struggle. Now that my summer 5k races are done, I think that I am going to take about two weeks of down time from intense training, and do some other activities besides running. After that I will begin to focus on my fall half marathon and marathon training, and try to get a good PR in one or both of those distances. Overall a really fun race, and I am considering doing the half next year, but I will just see what is going on during that time next year. After the race, watched the parade, went to the Days of 47 Rodeo, and toured the University of Utah campus. Very tired now.
