AM: 3 easy on redwood before heading to uvu 

PM: Sage Ducote, Josh Thatcher, and Tanner Sharp from Dez Hells, Alexis MacArthur from Orem, Julieta from timp, and Matt Salazar from Cali are the other people here on the visit. I am so hyped the hells guys are here cuz they are so funny. Turns out that Matt Salazar was the kid that beat Garek in the frosh soph race at Footlocker our sophomore years. While on the topic of beating Garek, I beat him at Murray, sophomore year I think. But that would be weird if it was sophomore year because he destroyed me at footlocker in that race. I dunno. But I did beat him at Murray.

Had breakfast at Village Inn, got a tour of the campus, had lunch at Zupas, then did my workout on the track. 12x400's.

During lunch got .75 in on the treadmill at utahrun trying on some pegasus 31's. They were dope. 

At practice, before our 1 mile on the turf I jumped over this huge fence/barrior thing and it was sick. I brushed it going over and it was pretty dope. haha Jamie was running over trying to stop me as I jumped it. Me, Wanks, and Flips got HYPED after haha. Then ran to the groval. Some around the groval, then pre meet 800 in 2:22. Then some around the groval. I got a ton on grass/turf today, it was kinda boring. A little out then back to the high school. 

Did some homework and ice bathed with Asa. It was lit. Then went to the team dinner and had a party. Shout out to Marsha for being the motivational speaker. She is 41 years old and is still the best Heptathlete from Trinadad and Tobego and at her last meet was 40 points off the masters world record! She is training for Rio #goals

AM: 2.5 on redwood. Shout out to all you loyal blog viewers for getting me to 300, ily. 

PM: 2 mile warm up and strides and stuff. Got out fine thru the bottle neck. Chilled the first mile with a 4:56 and stayed in good position, bout 10th. Second mile did a good job of moving up and staying consistent (passing the guys who started out way fast) 5:03 second mile, best second mile I've ever had. Last mile was pretty much Joe, Ryan, and I. It was pretty tough after that second mile. Third mile was 4:58. Made a move with 200 to go and ended in third. Ryan beat Joe as well so it was pretty sick. Finished with a 15:19.  They say its a three mile but I got 3.1 right as I finished. So thats a 24 second pr from bob firman. 3 mile on the watch was 14:57 which was pretty sick. Lone Peak ended up winning because their split is crazy, 9.9 seconds so shout out to them. They beat AF by 6 points and then we were 4 freaking points behind AF! 10 freaking points we  were away from winning. It's the same thing that happened at Bob Firman. I'm so sick of having someone wimp out and have a bad race and we get so close to winning but we cant do it. 

1.5 barefoot on the turf before awards. Then drove over to Thoms house where Kenzie Draper's wedding reception was. It was sick seeing her for the first time in like a year, along with Emily Allen, Alesha Hatch, Daniel Woodward. It was sick. Quick fact on Emily Allen, Chicken Nugget's older sister. She was pretty good in high school but now she's killing the marathon cuz she's got hecka endurance. She is exactly 5 minutes away from the B Standard at the Olympic Trials! She graduated like 3 years ago! 

Drove over to the Twins house and went on a 3 mile shake out with Kobe. Now we're roasting everyone and getting turnt and stuff. Peace out homies.
