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!

Got up  to go to work this morning. Cheyenne had already gotten up because she couldn't sleep. Asked me to stay home today because she thought it might be the day. Ten minutes later we are getting ready to go to the hospital. 2 hours later, our son was born. Wow! That was a quick wonderful experience. Now we have a beautiful healthy baby boy :)
