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!

Ran 4 miles on the treadmill. Felt pretty good until the very end. Now there is some tightness in the same achilles. I'm hoping that it is due to not using keeping weight off the tendon for the past week, not because there is residual inflammation. I really want to get back to running!

Ran a mile after the bike ride. Didn't feel quite perfect, but I don't think I made anything worse.

Short walk and 2.6 mile run. Short strides seem to be safe.

Good easy run. Taking short controlled strides doesn't bother my achilles at all.
