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 the Pocatello Marathon in under 3 hours. Say hello!

Treadmill before the bus. Did some incline and ended up with around 1300' gain overall. (8.3 in 1:06:24)

Lunch run with Jack. We took it really slow today. I definitely needed it, as my muscles are still fatigued and sore from last week. Kinda weird, as I felt fine Saturday and Sunday. (5.08 in 0:43:38)

Took my mom to the airport this morning, so no morning run. This week with her was so much fun. I am so happy that my parents are looking to move closer soon. 

Easy lunch run. Some discomfort in the quad right at the end. Glad it was a light day. (6.13 in 0:50:41)
