High School:

I broke Alan Webb's HS mile record with a... well, if anyone is actually reading this, I guess I'll be honest:

XC 5K: 15:57

1500: 4:04.55

800: 2:01.05

400: 53.07


5000: 14:23.1 (Mike Fanelli Invite 2019)

Indoor 3000: 8:21 (@ Weber State indoor Track converted from 8:39.28)

Road race 10000: 32:23 (alt)

800: 1:55.6@ (solo time trial at Provo high school)

Short-Term Running Goals:

It's XC TIME!!!!!! I want to be on and travel with BYU's first men's XC national champs.  

Long-Term Running Goals:

I want to continue running as long as possible. I don't feel a need to run marathons; I would rather simply be able to run 5Ks and 10Ks for much of my adult life and at least get in a few miles until I'm pretty old.


I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I served a mission in Rome, Italy from 2015 to 2017. I like chocolate shakes.

Miles:This week: 40.50 Month: 173.50 Year: 1424.50
Adi-zero Tempo 9 Lifetime Miles: 225.00
Saucony Ride 10 GreyB Lifetime Miles: 297.00
Saucony Ride 10 BlackB Lifetime Miles: 58.50
Total Distance

We did one hard mile, 8 min rest, then 8 by 200 w/ 2 min rest, and 5 min rest after one in the middle. I ran the mile in 4:21. I went out in 48!!! That's 4 flat place!! Holy crow. Then I was at 1:39 after two laps, and 3:26 after four laps. I FINALLY got that mile/1500 PR that has eluded me since I ran it in 2013 as a 16 year old. Now, if I had people to run against, flats to wear, and had raced, I think right now I'm in 4:10-4:12 shape at sea level. Not bad to be that fast off of just strength. If my 5K doesn't go well in San Fran, I definitely will plan on training for the Robby mile in late April. Sadly, afterwards I felt like garbage, but it was because of the fieldhouse air. I felt nauseous and like I was being stabbed in the trachea. Possibly my worst fieldhouse breath I've ever had. So I needed over 10 minutes rest after that (and not cuz I killed myself on the mile). Then I did the 200s in 29ish, the last two on my own. With that much rest and people to run with they are pretty much cake. 

I skipped lunges and squats today because my patellar tendon still hurt a little after the run.

Saucony Ride 10 Black Miles: 11.00
Weight: 0.00

Congrats on the 1500/mile PR.

Good Luck in San Francisco in your 5K race.

What team do you run for?

From Ethan Cannon on Wed, Feb 20, 2019 at 16:39:15 from

Thanks. I currently run for the Farm team, a group of runners at BYU that aren't on the cross country/ track teams. If I run well enough at my race in March, I will get on the BYU team.
