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- Race Report: Woke up at 4:30am, because I had to be at Maesar Elementary by 5:45 to catch the bus to go to the start of the race. Made sure to drink plenty of water before the start, because I think that making sure that I am hydrated helps my body and performance overall. There wasn't very many people or competition running the race (only like 82 runners), so I basically had to run the entire race alone. I was expecting to run right around a 1:20, if I felt good. From the start, 5:50-5:55 pace felt great, so I just went with it. One of the things that I was especially happy about my performance today was that I was able to even pace/slightly negative split the race, because I was worried that I was going to "blow up" around mile 10. Also I was quite surprised with my performance today, because I didn't have any competition to push me, and I have done little speed work under 6 minute pace during this training cycle. This race today was over a 3 minute improvement from what I ran at the Dino Half earlier this spring, and they are the same course, so I do think that I have improved as a runner over the last few months. Overall I am really happy with how today went, and I am looking forward to see what I can do at the Salt Lake Haunted Half next month!
