Happily married with one kid. Chemical engineer, now studying statistics. Although I've always maintained a healthy level of fitness, I didn't pick up running until junior year at BYU. Now I live in Idaho, where I leave for work at 4:30am and don't get home until 5:30pm. I try to get a short run in before work and usually something during lunch. My focus in running is improving my marathon time, but I like to participate in all the races I can. I am a Honey Stinger Hive ambassador and hoping to qualify for the Boston Marathon for the first time this August by completing a 2020 marathon in under 3 hours. Say hello!

Watched the Netflix series on Bill Gates. Really good!

I felt some strange discomfort in my tailbone when I started. I stopped and walked for a bit, and didn't feel anything. So I tried running again and felt fine after that. (12.5 in 1:41:22)
