Goal Type:

Age Division Winner

Running Accomplishments:

I have just recently started running and have not run any races yet.  I just run for fun now.

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.

This morning I ran 3 miles alone around the neighborhood.  I ran 30 seconds of sprinting and 30 seconds of regular running and repeated that for 3 miles.  My average time for the 3 miles was about 6:40 min/mile.  I am thinking that I need to get that down to about 6:30 min/mile.

After this I ran another 3 miles with my mother.  She said that maybe if the weather is nice next week, we will go down to the West high school track, and I can run some 400s on the track.  I have never done that before, so I don't know what to expect.

This morning mom was feeling a little better. She was not so sore, so she joined me for an easy run around the neighborhood.  It was a very easy pace about 8:00 mine per mile.  After that I did 7 steep hills by myself.

Started with three easy miles around the neighborghood, then I did three more miles at a faster pace around 6:40 min/mile.  Mom is all bruised and sore from her fall yesterday, so she decided not to run today.

After I finished my run, I did 60 jumping squats.

This morning I ran three miles around the neighboord at about 6:40 min/mile pace.  I felt good today.  I thne met my mom at home and we did another three miles.  This time slower at about 8:00 min/mile pace.  

My mom had a little accident toward the end of the run.  We were both sprinting the last little bit, and my mother tripped on an uneven spot in the road and fell.  

We just got back from the doctors, and she had a broken thumb on her right hand, two scraped up and bruised knees, and a scraped and bruised elbow.

I hope this won't turn my mom off from running.

Our guests that were staying for the weekend finally left last night.  It was fun having them here, but nice to finally get back to normal.

It was good to finally be able to go out and run today.  First I ran 3 miles around the neighborhood with my mom at about 7:00 min/mile pace.  Then I ran 7 steep hills.

This afternoon I did 100 jumping squats.  I think I need to develop more muscle strength.  I am not really sure how to go about it.  I am thinking of adding some weight training to my training, but I am not sure how to best do it.

We have had guests staying with us so things have been real hectic.  I am not going to be able to run until after the holiday.  It is a little frustrating, but oh well, enjoying company is also fun.

With it being "President's Day" this holiday weekend I had a plan to research and write an essay in my journal about who I think is the best of the lesser known presidents of the USA.   I won't be able to do it with so much going on, so I think I will try and do it during this week.  First I was thinking about Grover Cleavland, but maybe he is too well known.
