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!

Had a great time. So many people so eager to achieve big goals. It was really fulfilling to help pace some of them, and see the gratitude and excitement from some afterwards. A lot of BQs! I can't wait to pace again!

Easy treadmill run. Most comfortable I've felt all week. I think I delayed my recovery a bit by doing too much mileage. I didn't think that would be the case if I went at a very easy pace, but now I'm finally starting to feel better. Lack of sleep probably didn't help. Note to self: just cause you're pacing the marathon doesn't mean recovery will be as simple as that from a typical workout... (5.8 in 0:47:43)

More smooth running at lunch today. Just slow, but that is a nice thing. (5.32 in 0:47:24)

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)
