SPECIALTIES

Improving PR’s for anything from 1 mile to 10k, whether it be track, cross-country, or road racing. Especially for beginner to intermediate runners.

PHILOSOPHY

The best way to get better at running is through consistent, healthy mileage with well-timed, race-specific interval work.

Running healthy means avoiding injury, sickness, and fatigue by staying on top of recovery so that running can feel good! This means balancing training with proper sleep, nutrition, and strength and mobility work.

Workouts and mileage should be tailored to the individual for the race they are training for. Everyone is different and has different strengths and needs. Different races require different kinds of preparation for the best results.

Train to race! Workouts are given to help an athlete race faster on the big day, not just to hit a quota. Sometimes more rest is needed, and sometimes it’s appropriate to increase the training load. Communication between the athlete and coach is key to developing and modifying the training plan. The athlete and coach both need to be flexible.

COACHING EXPERIENCE

I am just beginning my coaching journey, but I have lots of running experience and have seen how a variety of coaching styles have worked on different runners. I am excited to begin coaching and helping fellow runners.

ABOUT ME

I am 25 years old and from Kaysville, Utah. I am currently going to school at Utah State University, getting a masters degree in civil engineering. Growing up, I played every kind of sport, with some of my favorites being soccer, basketball, and volleyball! I have always been driven to get better and compete as hard as I can. Exercising, in whatever form, has always been the highlight of my day. In junior high, I began getting into track and field and discovered that I enjoyed distance running. I liked track, but after competing in my first cross-country meet, I was sucked in. I have been training ever since then, with lots of ups and downs, and have learned a lot and grown a lot along the way.

Aside from running, I enjoy the outdoors and love to camp, hike, and just be outside! Some of my fondest memories are from backpacking excursions with my family, just exploring the mountains! Naturally, trail running has become one of my favorite activities. I love to find new places to run and explore the beautiful Utah mountains. I also like to read books of all kinds and learn. I like doing any sort of mind puzzles and love playing strategic board games with my friends and family.

BIG INFLUENCES

My high school coach, Corbin Talley, gave me a passion for the sport and a fire to get as good as I could. My college coach, Arthur Gulden, taught me the importance of smart and patient, healthy training over time for the best long-term improvement. He taught me to dream bigger than I thought possible and made me believe in my dreams.

There have been many books that have shaped my view on training and improving, including “Good to Go” by Christie Aschwanden, “Endure: Mind, Body and the Curiously Elastic Limits” by Alex Hutchinson, “Chop Wood Carry Water” by Joshua Medcalf, and many more.

RACING HISTORY

My racing career has been full of ups and downs. While I haven’t had to deal with many injuries, thankfully, I have struggled with iron deficiency anemia and other nutritional deficiencies that affected my energy levels and performance. My race times have been volatile, but this has taught me the importance of proper nutrition and training load balance. However, over the years, I had the chance to lead my high school team to a cross-country state championship and a 4th place finish at Nike Cross Nationals. I helped my college team finish 11th in the cross-country NCAA championships. I also achieved All Mountain West Conference four times and narrowly missed All-American a couple of times. However, I think what has been most satisfying to me as a runnier is seeing my improvement over the years. My first 5k I ever ran was over 30 minutes, and after years of practice and training, I ran 13:53.

    Camren’s the best. I’m a wildland firefighter and needed help preparing for a 1.5 mile run test for work. Camren helped me go from 10:30 to a 9:07 mile and a half in two months. He was always available to answer my questions and gave me great workouts. Highly recommend
