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.

No running today.  I am resting for tomorrow race so that I will be 100%.

I m really getting nervous about the race.  I have felt a lot of pressure, because a lot of people are counting on me to do well.  I almost wish I hadn't signed up for the race.

Last night, my uncle took us all to a "Steamboat Restaurant" for dinner.  He said I needed to eat a lot for my race on Saturday.  It was deliciousl .  It was a buffet restaurant.  The steemboat is a pot with broth inside.  You can put the broth that you want in your pot, and around the pot is like a place like a mongolia barbeque where you can barbeque.  You get all the vegetables that you want and different kinds of meats that you want and either cook them in the broth or barbeque them.   It was great!  The best part was that they had "BEETS".  My favorite vegetable is beets.  I usually have beets every day either cooked or pickled, but I haven' had any in Singapore.  Last night there were beets, so I ate lots of them.  I have read that beets are a "super food" for endurance, and that your endurance will greatly improve if you eat beets. 

Time to go to school.

Today I ran 6 miles on the treadmill before going to school.  I have been so tired after school that I don't feel like doing anything.

I have lots to write about school, but I will wait until I am not so tired.

I didn't know if I was even going to be able to run today.  I went to school for the first time ever.  I was so tired when I got home.  I didn't want to do anything.  I took a short nap and then felt a little more like running.

I did 6 miles on the treadmill.

I wonder if all of the other students on the blog here are that tired everyday after school.  If you are I really admire you even more for being able to do school and train everyday.

I am too tired tonight.  I will write what I think about school another day.

Did 6 miles (10K) on the treadmill.  Today I ran 2 minutes fast, and then ran 2 minutes slower for recovery.  I kept repeating that.  It is amazing how long 2 minutes is when you are running fast on the treadmill.  It seems that when I run on the road 2 minutes goes by quickly.

My uncle got persmission for me to attend school here while I am in Singapore.  I will start tomorrow.  It will be my first time in my life to attend a school.  I have been home taught my entire life.I am excited, but also scared.  At this school they wear uniforms, so I will borrow my cousins uniform.  She is two years older than me so is in a different class.
