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 the Pocatello Marathon in under 3 hours. Say hello!

Workout the day after donating blood. The difference was noticeable (at least I choose to blame my diminished energy on yesterday's blood donation!).

5x1 mile at lactate threshold effort with 1 minute rests. 8x200m at mile effort with 200m recoveries. I sweat a lot and was ready to be done. 11.42, including warm up and cooldown, which together were almost 4 miles. (11.42 in 1:23:00)
