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!

Home treadmill. Easy buildup, all the way to marathon pace. It was a 13 mile buildup to 8.7 (6:55-ish pace), and it felt really good. Gradual cooldown afterwards for almost 2 miles. (14.8 in 1:50:03)
