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.

I had a great weekend in Bintan Island.  It was so beautiful there.

I didnt do any running, but I did some snorlkelling in the ocean.  It was my first time to snorkel.  It was so beautiful.

Today I ran 6 miles on the treadmill.  I felt good to run again.

Today is mother's day in the USA.  I will talk to my mother a little later.  I really miss her.  I heard from her the other day, and she said that she has a surprise for me and will talk to me about it later, so maybe she will tell me today.

I am hoping she is going to say that we can stay in Salt Lake.  I hope, hope, hope, hope.

Yesterday, my mom told me she had a surprise for me.  I was hoping it was that we would be staying in Utah.....but no.  Her suprise was more of a SHOCK to me than a surprise.  She told me she is getting remarried.   I was in shock when I heard that.  I thought how could she meet someone that soon.  Anyway, she met an architect from Seattle and he asked her to marry him and she said yes.  I don't know what to think.  She told me that he has a large house on some island near seattle.  She said that there is a guest house next to the house and that Jon (his name is Jon) said that if I wanted I could have the whole guest house for myself.  The first thing I thought was that he thinks of me as the pet daughter that he can put outside in the dog house to get me out of the way.  I am really feeling kind of depressed today.  I have a father who is not interested in me, now this.  

I wasn't feeling like running today, but I went to the fitness center anyway.  Mr. Teo could tell that something was wrong.  I told him what happened.  He talked with me about it for a while.  He told me to try and think about it from my mom's point of view.  In a few years I will meet someone and want to get married and will move out leaving my mother to live alone.  She probably also wants to have someone that will be there when I am no longer there.  Maybe I am being selfish not wanting my mother to remarry, but I just can't help not liking the idea.  I didnt sleep at all last night.  I just dont feel like doing much of anything right now.  I ended up not running and just talking with Mr. Teo this morning.
