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- 10.5. Almost got hit by a car while going on a cross walk, even when it was my turn to cross. Scared me pretty good. Got to be careful going down Maine St.!

PM- 5 miles from Vernal Park. Even though I usually feel great starting my day off with running, I think that I enjoy evening runs a bit more.

PM- 10.6 at around 5 pm. Did the last mile as a pickup in 6:40, some of it was around 6 flat, which felt good, yet bad at the same time with the low iron levels. Still got to figure all that stuff out, because it is preventing me from doing workouts such as hard tempos and speed work.

AM- 10k recovery miles this morning. Thought it was going to be really chilly out, but turned out to be really nice. On Thursday, it is supposed to be 17 degrees for a low at night. Chilly for October!

PM- 5.3 out to Naples and back home. Had high blood sugars starting out on this run, but once I hit halfway, I started to go low. Picked it up the last mile in 6:41.

AM- 10.5 easy from Vernal Park, out past the care center, then back making loops around Maine St. 8:18 average. For some weird reason, I was really thirsty all morning. I drank quite a bit of water before this run, and was really wanting some more before I even finished. Went and got some powerade zero afterward which was really refreshing!

AM- 10.6 very easy on the TM. Heading to Chicago tomorrow, going to the expo/sightseeing on Saturday, then the race on Sunday. As my goal is to run in all the Abbott World Marathon Majors, I am very excited to knock out my first one in the Chicago Marathon! Since I raced Big Cottonwood Marathon just a month ago, I am not expecting anything great at this race, however I will still try to put in a good effort and I might actually surprise myself. Weather looks decent as well!

AM- Chicago Marathon 2019: What a great experience today running my first Bank of America Chicago Marathon. Woke up at 4:30, ate some breakfast, then got ready to take the subway over to the starting line. With 45,000+ runners, getting into the corral took quite a bit of time, and I didn't have much spare time to use the bathrooms, get warmed up, and just get mentally prepared for the race. Also, I couldn't find the gear check for my corral, so I just had to put my drop off bag in some bushes at the park, since I only had 5 minutes to get into my corral. Got into the starting corral, and moments later we were off and running. I wasn't expecting a lot during this race, since I had just previously ran Big Cottonwood last month and my legs were feeling a bit sluggish with the traveling and everything. Stayed with the 3 hour pace group for several miles, but then fell off of them in the latter stages of the race. Once I got to miles 18-20, I really wanted to just enjoy the experience of the race and that is just what I did. Overall, I would say that this was one of my favorite races that I have ever done, and that I definitely will be back in the future to run the Bank of America Chicago Marathon!

AM- 10k easy on kid's canal. For the week or two, I am going to just being doing shorter runs and going very easy to let my body recharge for my spring training and build up towards Phoenix Marathon in February and Boston in April. I just realized the other day that after Boston in April, I will have ran 5 marathons in a 12 month period, and this does not include my 42 mile ultra race in July and the Ashley 50 mile relay in August, which was basically a marathon, since I ran 25 miles in that race. Overall, I want to have a really good build up for Phoenix and possibly Boston, so having some down time from high mileage for the next couple of weeks I think is important. It might seem like an out of range goal for me, but if I can stay healthy and get my iron levels up, I think that sub 2:50 at either Phoenix or Boston is quite realistic. And even though winter training will be difficult with the cold temperatures, I am going to give it my best at both races!

AM- 70 minute walk earlier in the morning, then did a little crossfit workout just before noon. Even though it was just double unders and the assault bike, it still kind of kicked my butt. Felt good to mix it up today though!

AM- 16.5 miles from Vernal Park, then out to Naples, and back to the park. Then looped up to kid's canal and back. Probably too far in distance post Chicago Marathon, but I feel as though I want to get out there some before the weather turns out colder. Overall a beautiful fall morning run!

PM- Easy 10k. I was planning on going hiking this afternoon on the ship trails and dino tracks trails out past Red Fleet, but it was really windy, cold, and some flurries. It was much warmer here in town, so I just decided to do a shorter run today. Might go out there later in the week on a warmer day. Felt good!

PM- Crossfit workout at noon. 10 minute warmup on the airdyne bike, then 30 minute amrap of 50 double unders, 10 pushups, 20 situps, 1 minute plank, 1 minute hard on airdyne bike. It was pretty tough, as I have not done much crossfit lately, but I feel as though doing some of these workouts will make me stronger as a runner. After the workout, I did 6.3 easy around my neighborhood.

AM- 10.5 on kid's canal road. Felt better during today's run than during yesterday's crossfit workout. 

PM- Quick crossfit workout this afternoon. Benchmark workout "Annie" for time: 50-40-30-20-10 of double unders and situps. My time was 7:25 on this workout, which is not too bad but I know I can do a lot better. I think that I will do this workout once a month or so, just to see how I can progress on it.

AM- I decided that I wanted to get in some trail running before I start training hard for the Boston Marathon in the next couple of weeks. Went and did 6 miles on the Flume Trail, and I really enjoyed it. Good to mix it up with road runnings sometimes. Afterwards, I went back into town and ran 8.5 miles on down Maine St. Overall a good day of exploring and running!

PM- Didn't get in a run today, but I did want to get in some kind of activity, so I ended up doing 200 burpees for time. Got them done in 16:13, which I am quite happy with considering that I have done hardly any burpees lately.
