10 x state champion in high school (way back in the day!)
3 x USA team member
Short-Term Running Goals:
I would like to run an Olympic Trials Qualifier in the marathon.
I would also like to run on one more international team before I pack it in!
Stay healthy! (My biggest challenge!)
Long-Term Running Goals:
Run my whole life, and then live vicariously through my children. (just kidding) , but I do want to pass on a healthy lifestyle to them.
Help coach East High to a state championship. (hope it doesn't take a lifetime!)
I've been running since I was nine. I'm married to a fellow runner who inspires and supports me. We have two children: Cole (4) and Lily (18 mos.) I help Bill Cobler coach cross country at East High School.

Track speed mileage
I ran the TOSH Jordan River Half Marathon as a tempo run today. My goal was 6:30 average. I hit it pretty close. I need to learn to focus a lot better in the later miles of a race. My stomach wasn't happy. I had one quick pit stop. I also missed where the course went under a bridge and had to backtrack. Oh well! Good effort, and I got a little money for the morning. I don't feel anywhere close to being ready for a marathon, but efforts like today will help! I think sub-2:50 is a good goal for TOU.
Really early morning run. More last week of school craziness. I'm in charge of Field Day today. 20 minute warm up. 3 x 1-2-3-2-1 minutes with 1-1-2-1-1 minute recoveries. 1.3 mile cooldown. 6:53 average.
