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.

Wednesday Workout. I waited until lunchtime to make sure my achilles/calf was okay. It felt 90% during the warm-up so I think the problem was a knot I found in my soleus muscle yesterday. I jogged to the track then began 4 x (2 x 400)m with 200m b/w reps and 400m b/w sets. 80-83, 84-84, 84-85, 85-83. Although I slowed down, I was still significantly faster than my goal of 87 seconds. I am really happy because my fitness is what slowed me down today - NOT my injury. My achilles/calf got a little achy once I stopped running, but I'm not too worried. The next couple days are easy.

This is probably the first run where your injury wasn't the limiting factor in a long time. That's a good thing - we can get the fitness back up high, as long as you aren't broken.
