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!

5 miles at work on treadmill

4.5 miles at home on treadmill w/ some strides. They didn't feel too great, probably due to residual soreness from Saturday's workout/fall on the ice.

1 mile at work. Couldn't get on a treadmill, so tried out a strange crescent-shaped self-powered treadmill. It felt nothing like running and was definitely more difficult. Hardest 10 minute mile I've ever run!

5.27 miles - first non-treadmill run this year. 20+ mph headwind didn't matter, it felt so good to run outside.

Ran my typical Rexburg hill loop for the first time since November. This is also the first time I've run outside in Rexburg since November. Did the loop 4 times and felt pretty good except for my ankle joints. I think they're hurting more than usual since I've been a baby by running indoors on the treadmill for so long now.
