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- I haven't really officially mentioned much about me doing this marathon. It was sort of a last minute thing, but I knew that I was in really good shape during this time after running the haunted half just about a month ago. Arrived in Las Vegas on Friday and just kinda did a little bit of tourist stuff. The race started at 4:30, and there were a total of about 40,000 runners in the entire Rock n Roll Marathon Series. This being true, I got down to the starting line and in my corral quite some time earlier than the start of the race. I have never seen so many runners at a race in all my life. Anyway gun goes off and we are off. I wanted to hold right around 6:50s from the start and try to stay in a fat burning state, so that I will not lose glycogen stores near as quickly as I did in Ogden. Came through the half in 1:29:38. I was feeling really good and felt like I was just jogging along. Took a honey gel at around mile 14 and was still feeling great. Once I hit mile 20, I knew that how well I ran from then till the finish would determine if I have a good race. I took another gel at mile 22 and got to work for a good finish. Felt a little weird at mile 24 but finally broke through that rough patch and pushed through the finish in 3:01:23! Really happy with this effort and overall felt much better during and after this marathon than at Ogden earlier this spring. Finally got that Boston qualifier too. I will have to wait and go in 2019 but can't wait to go!!
