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.

Am: 8 miles with Fritz and Michael Rees. 7:19 AP with 289' gain. Pm: 5.8 home. Threw in a 1.4 mile pickup at 5:30 pace to get a strava record because I'm apparently motivated by easy records. 😹

Easy win at Harriman 50k (because Fritz didn't run). Lost 5 min due to screwed-with flags in first loop. Eventually backed off until I could run with someone who knew the course. He tried to drop me at halfway when I spent 30s drinking fruit punch. I caught back up 1 mile later and never saw him again a mile after that. Easy effort for a race, but I won by probably 30 min, so I didn't need to do more. Encouraging before Bear, but I still need to get better at eating more while running ultras. I had course a little short, but I had watch on a less accurate mode. RD apparently mapped it dead on. Who knows or cares.
