Personal:

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!

Long easy run on the treadmill. Ankle was a little sore yesterday and I ended my run earler than planned. Today it was fine for longer than I planned! Back to normal workouts next week. (16.2 in 2:05:10)

Early in. The bus got in about 20 minutes later than usual. It was also a fun mile walk to the bus stop. This is the first time I've felt like I was slowly being turned into a snowman since I moved to Idaho. 8 strides at the end. Still no ankle soreness, yay!(7.9 in 1:00:00)

Early in. 4.5 minute warmup, revving up to marathon pace (6:49/mi), which I held for the rest of an hour (55.5 minutes). Ended with a 0.2 mile kick (6:00/mi). Felt pretty good, but there is room for improvement. (8.72 in 1:00:00)
