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!

Started at 7.5mph. 0.75 mile intervals, each one 0.1 mph faster than the last one. The last segment was at 9mph. The builder was 12 miles, with a 1.5 mile cooldown. First successful workout in a while. A great way to start 2020! Breakfast was grits with black pepper, overeasy runny eggs, and nutritional yeast. Yum! (13.5 in 1:38:31)
