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- Actually had a fairly decent race today, considering that I have been struggling with low iron/hemoglobin levels lately, which did still have somewhat effect on me towards the end of today's race. 3 am wake up call this morning to make it to the buses for the drive up the canyon. Didn't really any jogging prior to the race, since I knew I would warm up in the first couple of miles or so. This race had major downhills that in places were somewhat painful, and my quads could already feel it by mile 5. Kept a pretty consistent effort of around 6:25-6:30 throughout the race, until I got to the out and back section of the course. Legs started to tighten up and cramp at this point in the race, which was around miles 18-20. Got somewhat back into a good pace the last 3 miles, and tried to stay strong until the finish. Overall happy with the effort today, and excited for Chicago in four weeks!

Thanks Eugene! I saw you ran a really fast 400 for sprint sunday! Keep up the good work man! Also, are you planning on doing any races in the near future?

Maybe a rust-buster in december if I feel like I'm ready to run fast.
