Personal:

I am originally from Knoxville, TN and moved to SLC with Jake in 2010. I started racing in 2011 and had some great success before a major injury hit me in July 2012. I had athletic pubalgia surgery in May 2013...then again in Sept 2014 and am still trying to get back to my old self. Although running is my true passion, I love doing pretty much anything active outdoors - backcountry skiing, backpacking, biking, etc. 

I've been running for the Saucony Team since 2011. I enjoy representing the brand and really do believe they make the best shoes :)

I work as a Quality Engineer for BD Medical in Sandy.

Lunch - Ran with Devra on the JRP, 7:50 pace. When I asked her if she wanted to run with me today, she responded with the question "fast or slow?" as if there was any doubt!

PM - 10 miles on the Pipeline Trail in Millcreek with Jake, 8:35 pace.

Today is my 1-Year Surgiversary (surgery anniversary). It's amazing what a difference a year can make to health, both mentally and physically. I can confidently say that I'm in a much better place on both accounts.

AM - Jeremy Ranch Road long run with the Alta HS girls, 12 miles at 8:25 pace. I was really impressed with how well those girls ran up there - I may have to run with them regularly! This was my longest run since August 4, 2012 :)

PM1 - Jake and I mountain biked the Armstrong Spiro Loop Trail in Park City, 10.5 miles. I really enjoyed the 1500ft gradual climb uphill but the downhill trail had turned into quite a washboard. Not a great day to forget gloves - we had to ice our hands by the end b/c they hurt so much! The fall colors are very pretty :)

PM2 - Ran 3 miles on the Wasatch Crest Trail on the way home, 10min pace. We were not moving fast but had a nice run.

I'm really happy with the past week of running - 41 miles and several fun longer trail runs. We are headed to Dead Horse State Park this weekend, so I'm planning to do short easy runs throughout the week and then hopefully get in some trail running over the weekend before another trip to China.
