I was born in Lima Peru and have lived in Utah since I was 3.

I'm open to all sports but running helps me relax and just think, as does biking and swimming. I'm currently a freshman at the University of Utah.

Played two hours of basketball, rolled my ankle but I can still run.

4 miles on the treadmill. I usually go on speed nine which it says is a 6:39 mile pace but I do it comfortably and it must be off. I would say it is more around 7 minutes.

Did some 400s today on the indoor track. It was a 13 lap for mile one so the many turns did make it difficult.

The weather is warmer and the I happen to not be one of those sensitive people that can't run on red air days. Had a side ache the first two miles but it went away for the rest of the run, probably a sign that I'm getting out of shape.

Just played some sports at the sports academy. I'll be doing the USU indoor track meet tomorrow. I've done it the last three years and usually no one is in shape for it, so I'll go with relatively little expectations for myself time wise, it should still be fun. Oh and I took Drew's offer to be an assistant track coach this spring, just couldn't completely leave something I helped build.

This was a local track meet that drew quite the competition form some pretty far away schools. I came into this more curious than anything else of where I was. I haven't been running as much as I would like to be doing and I knew these would not be good races.

The 1600 was first and I got in the fast heat, not really sure why, I was planning on going in the second heat but I made a quick decision at the moment. I wanted to start slow and I did but since I was in the fast heat I quickly found myself last. After a couple laps I started passing the people who went out to fast until I caught Mark. I know he has been doing speed work and more consistent training for this meet than me so I just wanted to stay with him. I wasn't feeling great but I wanted to out kick him the last lap. I couldn't though because I forgot what lap I was on and pretty I see the finish thinking I still have one more lap. He had a better 50 meter kick and I finished with a 5:02 with some gas left in the tank.

The 3200 was a few hours later and the field was smaller but still fast. I didn't start this race slow and went fast from the start. Mark was in this race too and he was right behind me until about the 4th lap. I than started speeding up a little and distancing away from him. I was running with a kid from rock springs and he had a good pace. I kept trying to gap him but he was a strong runner. I ran out of gas the last lap and just kinda held on know I would struggle those last few laps, since I'm not in perfect shape. Still did decent in both events and I'm happy with my races. I ran both races in my Asics Japan Thunder 3.
