My Mom donated half of her Liver to me when I was 6 months old. I have now taken care of it for 20 years. I hope to do so for years to come.

I served an LDS mission in Fort Worth, Texas speaking Spanish 15'-17'. I am a Healthcare Administration Major at BYU-Idaho.

Alta Hawk XC & Track Alumni 2015. Yes, 'The Rob Murphy' was my coach, and yes, he is a legend.

Am- Today will be my first day back on the blog in two and a half years. I have run here and there since then and am now re-commiting myself to what I know will keep me happy and motivated in my life. Running.

Pm- I ran around Draper in a loop starting in Fort St. I felt pretty good until I hit an uphill. Ok, it was an incline of like maybe 2% it was nothing, but since I haven’t been training it was taxing. I ended up walking about three quarters of a mile then ran home. I was pretty tired, but so happy to be back in it. It was a happy day. I finished with 15 push-ups and 30 sit-ups.
