Major: Exercise and Wellness
Hometown: Encinitas, California
Track and field events: 3000-meter steeplechase, 5000-meters
Reason for attending BYU: BYU has the perfect balance between athletics, academics, spiritual and social life.
Best part of being on the BYU track and field team: It’s like having a second family.
Most memorable moment since arriving at BYU: Exploring the mountain terrain.
Favorite movie: Singin’ in the Rain
Best place to eat in Provo: Great Harvest Bread Co. (especially for a mid-run snack!)
If you could be doing anything in 10 years it would be: Loving life
Favorite BYU sport other than track and field: Rugby. It’s fast, thrilling, and confusing enough to keep you interested the whole game.
Funniest member of the BYU track team: Sarah Edwards. Hands down. And she knows it too.
Hidden Talent: I can spot the “Y” on the mountain during any season of the year from any place around.
Best sport you play/played other than track and field: Soccer (my other secret passion)
Best athlete in any sport at BYU: Katie Palmer. She can do literally any sporting activity…soccer, kickball, hiking, sledding. Plus she’s national track material. She is the best all-around athlete at BYU.
If you could add one thing to the BYU campus what would it be: The occasional tree house (sometimes all the good study/lunch spots are taken).
Gatorade, PowerAde or Vitamin Water: Killer Blue PowerAde prepared by Judd or Sam
Most embarrassing moment: I asked a cute boy to go sledding with me by yelling only one word of the question to him each time I ran around the indoor track…but hey, he said yes.
