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: The day before the race, I kept looking at the weather, and it said that it was suppose to be raining with some snow flurries combine. I was prepared for cold temperatures, but not as cold as the ones that occurred in this race. Woke up at about 5:30, ate some breakfast, and got on the bus. Got up to the start, and wind chills were about 19 degrees and there was a fresh blanket of snow. Perfect haha!! Super cold and hard to really stay comfortable at the starting line for about an hour. We set off and there was ice on most parts of the roads, so I had to be careful in the first 2 miles of the race. I hit alot of 5:50s after the first 2 miles, and they felt really good and not very hard. My fastest mile of the race was 5:38, which I was happy about. Surge and draft was my main race strategy for this race, and it worked quite well for me. Just kept working my way up to top 3. Had a couple of rough stops as far as effort level, but they came and left for the most part. Finished with a good kick in the last 400, and felt good when I was done. Got 3rd out of 1,250 runners, which was exciting. Cooldown for about a half mile afterward to release some of the tension from the race. I am not sore at all, but the training block that I have done for the last few months is over, and I think I will take a couple of days off just to reflect on this last cycle. I don't know what my next goal is, but I will find something. Overall very happy with this race, and getting a new PR for the half.

KENNY!!! I'm so happy my boi got that PR! You earned it. I like to think to some very small degree our training this summer helped.

A couple things you can train for:

1.Break 5 in the mile this xmas break, which I will happily pace you for(and not out-kick you)

2.Train to be in shape w me over the break so we can have some sweet workouts together

That's about it. Great job and I'll see you in two months!!
