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 quite a bit earulier than I normally do for races, like 4 am. For some reason I just wasn't very tired. Got on the bus at about 6:30, and was up to the starting line by 7. The race didn't start until 8:30, so it was a little annoying having to stand around up at the starting line for an hour and a half, but it wasn't very cold for the race this year. Ran into a fellow Uintah xc/track runner Luke, who had a really good race and personal best today, so S/O to him. My goal for this race was to keep my mile splits as consistent as possible, and be able to run a better time than last year, which I knew I was easily capabable of doing, based on my fitness over the past few months. Miles 1-3 were right where I wanted them to be, and they felt quite comfortable overall. 5:45, 5:46, 5:48. For miles 4-7, I am feeling strong, and the miles seem to be going by quite well. 5:41, 5:41, 5:43. During miles 8-10, I was able to pass a couple of guys that went out really fast, I from the start I had a feeling that someone in front of me was going to fall off their pace. There was one guy though that I basically could see for most of the race ahead of me by about 100 meters or so, just couldn't quite reel him in. Anyway, mile splits 8-10 were strong with 5:35, 5:38, 5:49. After this, I felt like I was started to have a few rough patches on being able to focus on my pace, and fell off just a bit from what I held during the previous miles of the race. Continued on to finish in a new personal best and a 3 minute improvement from last year on this course! Mile 11-13 splits were 5:48, 5:50, 5:51. Overall stoked about my performance today, and I was able to keep mostly consistent splits. Legs feel pretty beat up now and are quite sore to say the least. Gonna take it easy for the next couple of days, and then get ready for Las Vegas Marathon coming up soon!

No running today, even though I was tempted to go for a little shakeout run this afternoon, but I decided to give myself a day of rest. I was really sore after the race yesterday, until I was able to get a good meal in me. Went to the USC @ Utes game yesterday, which was a blast!

AM- 6.1 miles from Maesar to home. Legs were cramping a lot during this run, and I know it is from the Haunted Half but I don't know why they are starting to get worse now verses earlier in the week. Might end up doing a shakeout later and taking the rest of the week off, which is frustrating but I don't want to get injured.

PM- 3.7 mile shakeout on the TM. Felt much better this evening than I did on my morning run. Took some ibuprofen and have been drinking plenty of water as well.
