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!

I didn't realize how sore I was until I tried to run this morning. Oof! It felt really good after a few minutes of sticking with it though and I'm glad I did it. (7.13 in 1:01:06)

Easy lunch run. Good loosening exercise. (5.24 in 0:44:37)

Second run in the new racing shoes and I love them. If they're this nice in two weeks then I will probably buy a couple more pairs. I was feeling really lame yesterday (sore and uncomfortable) and I was planning on scrapping this workout and running at a light pace on the treadmill in case my ankle gave me trouble. After a few minutes, I decided I felt okay enough to attempt the workout and it turned out to be a great experience!
