I started track when I was 8 or 9 with the Arizona Flames because my older siblings had ran and so of course I had to try it. I ended up getting stuck with distance and I’ve been running ever since.
We will be running in Peaks, Ray Wherley, Red Mountain’s, Twilight, City, Sectionals, and hopefully State!
This season I really would like to break 18:30 in the 5k. I am really looking forward to having a competitive team and hopefully winning a team trophy at a meet.
My summer training went really well, and went by really fast too. My favorite workout would be our trips to Payson every Friday. We would go on a 10-13 mile run followed by going to play in a creek. This summer I ran 40-50 miles a week.
I usually lift twice a week and we now are swimming once a week too.
I pretty much just eat whatever I’m in the mood for.
I had some problems with my feet last year, but I was able to do some cross training along with rehabbing it and I haven’t had any problems since.
My favorite cross country race was probably Twilight because it was super cool running at night and I got my best time ever at that meet.
The best part of running is finishing. I love when I get done with a hard workout or race and can look back and be proud of the work I put in.
I would have to say my freshman year in the 2 mile at the Chandler invite. I remember I was super scared because I got put in the fast race but once I started I felt really good and just ended up going with the flow. I got my 2 mile pr that race and I was super excited!
When I’m not running I am usually dancing, playing soccer, or just hanging out with my friends or sister.
S/o to my baby sister Kendy for always being there and pushing me to be faster every day in practice. Also to my team because I love you all and I’m so proud of how far we’ve come. Another to Taryn Estavillo for being the best frenemy there is! And lastly to Nate Cruz for being my training buddy!
Sour gummy worms are my love
