2018 Running Schedule

Feb - Phoenix Marathon: 2:39:39. Glad to get a sub-2:40 marathon and a new PR in my first marathon in 3.5 years.

April - Emigration 10: 54:44. Happy with this one. Glad to get a good win.

April - Bonneville Shoreline Trail Marathon - 3:59:16. Finally a sub-4 here despite the worst conditions I've run it in.

May - Stillwater Half Marathon (MN): 1:16:50. Went out at 1:12 flat pace in high heat and humidity and died very badly, barely maintaining a running cadence on the final hills. Worst race of the year by far.

June - Utah Valley Marathon - 2:38:50. Glad to nab a new PR off of mostly half training.

July - Des News Half: 1:09:58. Really surprised myself with this one.

September - Berlin Marathon - Goal of sub-2:35:00. 

Long-Term Running Goals:

Stay healthy, make improvements, maximize my potential.

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.


Summer 2018 update: I'm lazy about copying over from Strava, so find me over there for day-to-day runs until I eventually get around to copying everything over here. I'm really thinking long term this year; thus, I'm focusing on consistency while still working really hard, and I'm glad to say that I'm not only in the best shape of my life, but my fitness is rapidly improving. I'm strongly motivated to see how fast I can get over the coming years.

Registered for Provo City Half and am still planning on the low-key BOSHO trail marathon next weekend, so better start training well again now that I've spent some money on the season. :)  

Worked 15 hours, but still fit in both a run and a lift, so that was good.  The only catch was that I didn't go to bed until 5:30 AM. Hah.

Run: 6 mile TM tempo after lifting.  5:57, 5:54, 5:55, 5:55, 5:55, 5:43.  Felt harder than it should've, but I'll be back in shape soon enough!

7 ish at lunch with Nate and Adam. Nobody had a Garmin, but we did a few minutes shy of an hour on a combo of roads and trails at an easy effort
