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 today. 2 mile warm up. 3x1mile at lactate threshold (9mph) with 1 minute rests. 4x3 minutes at VO2max (9.5-9.8mph) with 2 minute rests. 6x200 meters anaerobic with 200 meter rests. Mile-ish cooldown. Feeling better now than when I started the workout, so that's good I think! (10.59 in 1:15:30)
