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
XC 4 mile: 21:14
Road race 10000: 32:23
Road race 5000: 15:37
Indoor mile: 4:31 (4:26 converted)
Indoor 3000: 8:39 (8:29 converted)
Short-Term Running Goals:
I think if I stay healthy and consistent in early 2019, I will finally be able to put up some solid times and finally get on the BYU team for good. I'm not sure if I'll be best at the 1500, 5K, or 10K, but whatever one of those I run I want to qualify for NCAA regionals.
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.

Yesterday I went to Runner's corner to get new shoes. Awesome place. Their price matching policy is incredible. Very knowledgeable staff. I ended up going for Saucony Ride 10s. They are kind of ugly compared to the tempos. And I love how you don't even feel your feet when you run in the Tempos. But they have more padding so I'm hoping they will work well! This morning was alright, a little pain on the right side today.
Like usual, it hurt right off the bat, and then mostly went away, although I was checking myself the whole time because I was concerned about both sides. 6:30s ish on the way out, 5:40s on the way back.
