I&#39;ve just realized how much you miss when you don&#39;t stop and take a look around. I&#39;m so excited for school to start and I have a feeling this year is going to be amazing. I&#39;m ready to focus on what matters and work hard. I love running and I love all of my team. Ready to get my head in the game. Anyway, haha the run was good today! We talked about varsity next year and how it&#39;s going to be. Excited to see who works hard and makes the cut.&nbsp;</p> Thu, 27 Jul 2017 06:00:00 Wed, Jul 26, 2017 <p>Today we had a randomized workout! We did CV, Tempo, and Threshold repeats randomly. It was really fun, I wanted to do more sets after we were done. It was an awesome day!</p> Wed, 26 Jul 2017 06:00:00 Tue, Jul 25, 2017 <p>Today was seriously so fun! &nbsp;The rain was&nbsp;awesome and it was fun running with the girls. I felt super close to them today and I had a ton of&nbsp;fun wrestling in the mud and grass. Ultimate was also super dope!&nbsp;Overall an awesome day! :)</p> Tue, 25 Jul 2017 06:00:00 Mon, Jul 24, 2017 <p>today was great! Me and Gracie couldn&#39;t do the Hurricane 5K or the enterprise 5K&nbsp;so we ran our tempo&nbsp;on our own. Gracie woke up before me and left because I wouldn&#39;t get up lol&nbsp;then I got up at eight and did a loop up to Costco from my house and added&nbsp;on a few around my house. I did tempo for about 22 min and ran a little faster of a pace. Sometimes I would catch myself slowing down so i tried really hard to feel the pace and do it. It&#39;s hard when you don&#39;t have anyone with you! But it&#39;s good to get used to the paces on your own.</p> Mon, 24 Jul 2017 06:00:00 Sat, Jul 22, 2017 <p>River trail run! It was pretty good but I felt dehydrated. Fun running with Gracie.</p> Sat, 22 Jul 2017 06:00:00 Fri, Jul 21, 2017 <p>Today felt super good. We met at the Vernon Worthen park and ran for 50 min with Striders. The Striders felt super good and the way back from the run also felt really good.&nbsp;</p> Fri, 21 Jul 2017 06:00:00 Thu, Jul 20, 2017 <p>Fum work out! We ran a bunch of the different paces, (tempo, threshold, and CV) and it felt really good to try them all out. The workout was hard enough to make me tired but too hard. I loved it.</p> Thu, 20 Jul 2017 06:00:00 Wed, Jul 19, 2017 <p>Today was ok. After we got to Sullivan park my body felt really tired. I also had a hard time breathing especially on the last few min even tho I went 5 under the max. I&#39;m glad I could I could rescue Evan today and I&#39;m ready to push harder tomorrow.&nbsp;</p> Wed, 19 Jul 2017 06:00:00 Tue, Jul 18, 2017 <p>Grass run! Today felt really good. My legs felt loose and it&#39;s was fun running with all the girls and talking.</p> Tue, 18 Jul 2017 06:00:00 Mon, Jul 17, 2017 <p>One of the best workouts of all time. I loved doing the sandhill. It was super hard but I loved pushing through it and seeing Gracie push! The downhill felt awesome and the uphill felt less awesome, but by the end I was proud of what everyone accomplished. Glad i could also help rescue Jada, Macey and Janessa!</p> Mon, 17 Jul 2017 06:00:00 Sat, Jul 15, 2017 <p>Today was chill. Me and gracie ran by costco and made a loop</p> Sat, 15 Jul 2017 06:00:00 Fri, Jul 14, 2017 <p>I felt pretty good today! At one point my legs felt kinda like jello but it wasn&#39;t bad. My knee was hurting pretty bad last and I was worried it would hurt today but luckily it didn&#39;t hurt at all. Today overall was good.</p> Fri, 14 Jul 2017 06:00:00 Thu, Jul 13, 2017 <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>What a day. I felt so good today. Coach Holt did a visualization activity before tempo and it helped me push through 28 min of tempo today. Josie also said some things to help me continue pushing. It&#39;s going to be hard without her next year, I look up to her so much. The team overall did amazing. People stuck in longer than they eve have especially the freshman. I&#39;m so excited for next year! The competition will be insanely intense and fun. Glad I have such an incredible team.&nbsp;</p> <p>The afternoon run was great today! We went a different way and weights made me feel good.</p> Thu, 13 Jul 2017 06:00:00 Wed, Jul 12, 2017 <p>Today was ok. I felt good at first then I struggled the last half. I felt really tired and out of energy. Jessica and Josie helped keep me distracted tho.</p> Wed, 12 Jul 2017 06:00:00 Tue, Jul 11, 2017 <p>Today was mostly just fun. I got to talk to Ry and Brianna and a bunch of other girls during the run.&nbsp;</p> <p>The afternoon run was a little harder for me. It felt extremely hot and I was very tired. But I benched more today and that&#39;s awesome. Love getting stronger.</p> Tue, 11 Jul 2017 06:00:00 Mon, Jul 10, 2017 <p>Today was a great run! It was awesome to go that far even tho it was really hard. I had a great time with the girls</p> Mon, 10 Jul 2017 06:00:00 Sat, Jul 08, 2017 <p>Nice run today with gracie. We ran up across the bridge and made a loop down onto the river trail.</p> Sat, 08 Jul 2017 06:00:00 Fri, Jul 07, 2017 <p>Today was fun! The girls started running with the guys and we all went to Samburgs. After Samburgs we headed to back and did Striders. Me and Brianna ran together and we both felt super good today. Later we also ran with Gracie, Sara, and Maddie. It was super fun today :)</p> Fri, 07 Jul 2017 06:00:00 Thu, Jul 06, 2017 <p>Today we had a hilly run, which was kinda hard to push through but it was good for the most part. The pushing was honestly fun especially because I&#39;m part of the best team that helps the pushing and helps me find joy in it. It was nice to have Brianna with us today, I love running with her. And I talked to Addi about feeling good and how it doesn&#39;t happen everyday. I love all these girls so much and I&#39;m so thankful for each and every one of them.</p> <p>Me and Gracie ran an afternoon run together and it was pretty great. I feel like the heat is becoming less of a problem now. Just stay hydrated kids.</p> Thu, 06 Jul 2017 06:00:00 Wed, Jul 05, 2017 <p>Today was so great. Me, Jess, Jace, and Ad all talked about important deep stuff. I learned a lot about perspective and we all got closer today. This team truly is my second family.</p> Wed, 05 Jul 2017 06:00:00 Tue, Jul 04, 2017 <p>Today was so fun! Me, Gracie, Addi, Jacey, Janessa, Alli, and Ellie met at Addis and ran together before having a delicious breakfast at Addis house! The run was super fun and we all talked about fun stuff.</p> Tue, 04 Jul 2017 06:00:00 Mon, Jul 03, 2017 <p>Unfortanely me and Gracie were late today because my car was in the shop and my mom had to take us late. We still ran and met up with the girls later on the run. It felt pretty good today especially the pick-ups, me and Gracie did them on the grass at sullivan park.</p> Mon, 03 Jul 2017 06:00:00 Sat, Jul 01, 2017 <p>Today was nice! Me and Gracie ran when we got back from girls camp, because after we got caught we didn&#39;t run :( but it was nice to get bcak today. We&nbsp;ran to Carls Junior and i added on a few minutes after Gracie. The increase in speed was nice at the end.</p> Sat, 01 Jul 2017 06:00:00 Thu, Jun 29, 2017 <p>Today was quite the rush. Me and Gracie went running like we did yesterday but today we got in trouble by camp directors while running. They got mad that we were runnng off of our camp ground, which I&nbsp;guess is understandable so we&nbsp;apologized, but then they got mad because we were wearing shorts at girls camp. They then told us they were going to follow us all the way back to make sure we made it safe, even tho we were on a safe dirt road and not lost out in the wilderness. I told Gracie to get ready and we&nbsp;took off sprinting away from the camp directors in their side-by-side. We ran our tempo all the way back to the camp which was great cause we had motivation to do it. When we got to our camp we hid away from the directors and&nbsp;they came by and asked my mom and leaders if they had seen two escapees. When they told them no, they left and we got away with it! hehehe</p> Thu, 29 Jun 2017 06:00:00 Wed, Jun 28, 2017 <p>Got to Cedar Mountian today for girls camp! The run felt good up there while it wasnt hot.&nbsp;</p> Wed, 28 Jun 2017 06:00:00 Tue, Jun 27, 2017 <p>Today was awesome! I felt so great and definitely could feel the difference from yesterday. I feel very hydrated and Ive been working on eating healthier and on a better schedule. The afternoon run was also pretty good. I prepared really well for it by eating at &nbsp;a good time before and drinking lots of water. I&#39;m so excited to do more of them and get better. Running is just great :)</p> Tue, 27 Jun 2017 06:00:00
