Personal:

I am a bioengineering PhD currently working as a post-doctoral research fellow in the Department of Neurology at the University of Utah, where I design neurosurgical approaches for treating movement disorders.


I'm lazy about copying over from Strava, so find me over there in the mean time. Training is going well and I'm keeping the mileage slightly lower for a marathon build in the interest of consistency and really high-quality workouts.

My legs were really tired from the previous day's run through super deep snow, so I played Xbox for nearly the entire day then (finally) went and saw the new Harry Potter movie. Got to love it.

Nice easy super snowy run at night. Tunnel Springs Park to Bountiful Blvd to Mueller Park / 1800 to Orchard and back home. One super downhill mile built in to make it net downhill and still only ran 8:40-ish AP. I'm really trying to make sure that my easy days are super easy as I get back into the swing of things. If G Mutai could do his easy runs at 8:00+ pace before his biggest marathons, I have no problem just getting in a slow, lazy outing.

.5 outside to gym then 7 on indoor track at 7:15 ap. Busy today! Last week was consumed by being pretty sick (don't sleep on an airport floor if you don't want to get sick) and taking care of our new kitty Phineas, a disabled little guy with cerebellar hypoplasia.
