Goal Type:

Age Division Winner

Running Accomplishments:

I have just recently started running.  I ran my first race on April 29, 2017  It was a 5K race in Singapore.  My time was 18:37.4.  I hope to continue running for enjoyment for a long time, and run in races occasionally.

Short-Term Running Goals:

I want to increase my training and become faster.  I would eventually like to become the fastest in my age group.

Long-Term Running Goals:

I would love to continue running as long as I can.


I am Vietnamese-American and I am 15 years old.  I am home schooled so do not run on a team. 

 I enjoy running everyday, and you may find me running City Creek Canyon, Memory Grove or in the avenues near the cemetary in Salt Lake City almost everyday.

My favorite subjects are History and Math.

I would love to be a history teacher or math teacher someday.

Ran 6 easy miles in the rain.  I have kind of gotten used to the rain here.  It rains every day, but it doesn't last for long, just off and on all day long.  

I was so sore today from yesterday.  I haven't been this sore in a long time.

I have set some new running goals for the summer.  I am posting them and my running schedule for June below.  That way I am committed to doing it.

Race: 800m Time Trial (0.5 Miles) 00:02:13, Place in age division: 1

This morning I ran 3 miles easy.

This afternoon I trained with the college.

I asked the coach if he would time me in a 800m time trial.  He had some of the guys pace me.

I ran 2:13.7.  I cam around the first 400m in 64.  I felt not too bad, but starting into the final 200m, my shoulders and neck got really tight, everything started getting dark..I thought I would pass out, but I kept pushing to the end.

After, we ran 2 x 400m (65 sec) and 8 x 200 m (31 to 36 sec) .  I was so dead on the last couple of 200m that all I could do was 36 sec.

I read a blog today here on the "fast running blog".  It was a blog about a father and son who ran a half marathon in Crocs.   I couldn't believe it.  Today the coach at the college told me again that I need to get some racing flats or spikes.  He says it would make a big difference.  So I told him about the guys running in Crocs.  I joked and told him I was going to get some Crocs to run in.

On the way home I actually even went and tried some on.  I can't see how anyone can run in Crocs.

6 miles outside today.  

It is a hot and sunny morning here in Singapore today.  It felt good to run this morning and I took it out fast today.  Did the 6 miles in about 41 minutes.
