My dad forced my freshman self who hated running to do Cross Country. I HATED it. I specifically remember coach saying on one of my first days of practice "I don't care if you don't become the fastest, I just want you to love running. If you don't love this sport by the time you're done, I haven't done my job." I totally laughed at him, but look where I am now.. it became my life more or less.

Freshman year started out strong with a solid 30 ish minute 5k time at the old Sugar House Invite. It was fetching hot and I puked like 800 m from the finish. Definitely still hated running. As the season went on I LOVED my teammates and LOVED the sport.. looking back I was definitely one of those JV kids who talks too much about XC with nothing to show for it. Hahaha. I think I cut my time down to around a 23 ish by region. Which was also fetching hot.

Track came around and I was on the legendary all freshman SV 3200 varsity 2k12!!!! Jk. Us four freshmen were the only 32 runners on our team, pretty much. I could do a sold 13ish minutes by the end of the season ( I think.) I also ran the mile a bit but wasn't on varsity.

Sophomore Year is when I really started to love all this madness. I had a goal to make it onto Varsity, and I did it!! Not with a little motivation from the 7th varisty girl who told me she was never gonna get bumped off. Lol really? Srry. I ran on the state team, too! It was awesome. I loved all my senior guy friends that year. They were the best. By the end of the season I was running around 21 minutes ish. (too lazy to look up the actual times ahaha)

Track I still ran the 3200 but also the mile a lot more... I can't really think of anything all that exciting for that year of track. Except for this time in my life was around the time I actually started to associate with boys lol. The distance boys hated us bc we were in love with Conner. And not the others.

Junior year: MY BEST XC SEASON EVER! Over the summer my dad wrote in my mirror a "plan" for me to become #1 varsity.


***gonna finish typing this later lol***


Short-Term Running Goals:

  •  Keep running!! Even though I'm done running for a team I don't want to get out of the habit.
  • Run a half marathon this summer


Long-Term Running Goals:

Keep running for my whole life- Me & the other Senior girls just formed a pact that no matter where life takes us we will ALWAYS be in shape to run 5 miles under a 10 min/mile pace. Even if we're pregnant!!! The one excuse will be my mission. I have come to love running so so much. It's a part of who I am and I never want to not be a runner.



I run for Sky View & love my team more than life. Class of 2015!

I've been to a dance with THEE Conner Mantz. nbd.

Known for puking during workouts and not proud of it (why did I just tpye that..) Also "the look". Thanks Coach Storrs.

Total Distance

Pre-meet. Ran about 2-3 miles including a couple easy hill reps to work on our strides. Also engaged in a vicious snowball fight with the boys during the run that FREAKING HURT.

Also found out the 4A mile state qual time has been lowered to 5:13! There's still hope though (:
