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 5am and don't get home until 5:40pm. I try to get a short run in before work and on a blue moon I do a little something else after work. Some might call that a weekend warrior, but I make an honest effort during the week as well. Say hello!

Lunch time workout. 5x1 mile at threshold pace. Averaged around 7:00/mile. Definitely NOT back where I was pre-tendinitis. I feel like I'm relearning how to run fast. (7.04 in 53:18)

6.48 in 52:01 at lunch time. It was a progress easy to moderate run with a few strides. I was pleasantly surprised to not have any soreness from yesterday's workout, considering how little hard effort I've been doing lately.

5 in 38:44 on the treadmill before dinner. Feeling really good today.

6.33 easy at lunch time in 53:06

3 easy before "dinner". Just a five-minute rush to mix edible things and eat before scouts really. Still good though.
