Best times in a 5K and 3 Mile race?

5K = 16:16  3 Mile = 15:56


Tell us how your training is going?

Well, I didn’t get hardly any summer training in but with much effort I’ve caught up to Massey and Wheat through 3 weeks of workouts.


What are your goals for the upcoming season?

To win state as a team and to place in the top 5 individually at state.  And I want to meet Dni LeMieux from Corona del Sol. She’s super cute.


How long have you been running and how did you get started?

This will be my third year.  My mom made me do it the summer before my sophomore year and I got a love for the people and the sport so I quit baseball and pursued running.


Will you be competing out of state this season?

I haven’t decided.  We’ll see how things go.


Favorite course to run in Arizona?

Probably Doug Conley.


Toughest course in Arizona?

George Young is rough.


Favorite Cross Country race so far in your high school career?

Doug Conley sophomore year.  I got 1st in the JV race by a lot.  The pre-race Captain Crunch made me run fast.


Favorite Cross Country memory?

Too many. Being obnoxious to coach, pasta parties, Cole Jacobson, messing around with all my teammates, winning races.



When you are not running what is your favorite thing to do?

Scrapbooking and wakeboarding
