Focus on improving my marathon:

  • Steady pacing
  • Getting below a 7:50 pace at St George in October
  • Learning what works better for me (type of nutrition, cross training, etc)

Long-Term Running Goals:

Running a sub-3-hour marathon is a personal dream. I hope I can gain an edge towards it with all the good advice on here.

Happily married with a giggly one year-old. Half-Colombian engineer working as a contractor for the Navy. I didn't pick up running seriously 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 during lunch time at work and then a little something else after work, but the weekends are where I try to make ground.

Back in SLC for the day. Hiked up to Lake Blanche with my wife and my father. My legs were really sore from Saturday's race, and the hike really helped to loosen up!

Easy miles at work. We got to meet up with an old friend this evening. We all became friends the same time I met my wife. It was great!

Easy miles at work


Easy miles pushing Ellie in the stroller. Quite warm today, but at least it's not San Antonio. I'll be going there for work next week...

Easy miles at lunch and then with Ellie after work. Well...as easy as running in the heat can be.

Drove out to Ammon and ran up the road towards Bone. I think this is part of the Bone and Back Relay. I came back on a dirt road that comes back on 49th South. I chose to do this to get some downhill training. I hope to be better prepared for STG in October than I was for Bryce Canyon last week.
