-Be really fit by early September and make the team even though I’m getting married in August. CHECK

-Not burn out early in the season NOT APPLICABLE

-Be On the team that wins nationals NOT CHECK

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 eat a whole food, plant-based diet, and my career goal is to help other people recognize the benefits such a diet can have on long term health. That being said, I also believe I have a competitive advantage in running because of my diet, but this is difficult to prove.

Felt pretty good today. I found a nice trail to run on in Maple Canyon. I will now list some of the runs I have found here to keep track of my options while here in Mapleton. If Google maps doesn't betray me, I still have yet to discover a lot of the coolest stuff around.


Hobble Creek canyon: Nice long run, equivalent in difficulty to RoxyAnn more or less.

Springville Run: This run doesn't use the bike path and is easier to track exact mileage. It could extend into a long run (albeit not the nicest one) that goes up into Provo once I start going longer.

MMHS run: This run takes me down into Spanish Fork and Maple Mtn High school. With a small shoulder on the road, it is a little sketchy for part of the run, but once I get down there, there is a lot to explore. 

Windmill bike path run: This is a perfect and rather quiet run for a 5-7 miler. It can be windy sometimes though.

Windmill/ gatehouse bike path run: Pull off the path on the way back to extend the run and see a neighborhood (emphasis on "neigh")  with some of the coolest houses in Mapleton. 

Hobble Creek loop: This is a modifiable run going north on the bike path to suit different distances.

Maple Canyon run: I need to explore this more. There is also the possibility to run on the road. It was super fun to run on the trail though today. Aerobically taxing on the uphill, yes, but fun!

Foothills runs: A couple of paths take you up rocky paths to the foothills with nice views of the valley. There weren't intended to be running paths and aren't as good as Bonneville shoreline, but I might be able to find some good running there.
