My name is Christian Tamura, I have been running competitively in high school for three years and have received a wealth of knowledge as well as training and have faced many challenges. Through these years of running I have been able to improve greatly and discover a love for running. I have been able to set a great PR in cross country on 5k with a 16:26 and 3 miles with a 15:46. I have run two half-marathons one during my freshman year and one my sophomore year at a very competitive pace of 6:26 per mile with a overall time of 1:23:56. I also would like to say that in my state of Arizona I have run the Grand Canyon from one side to the other and back within 14 hours and 20 minutes. I have run a Ragnar with my cross country team over 197 miles I took the longest leg of 11 miles. I have also helped my cross country team score runner-up at state two years in a row and hope to claim the title this year. I would like to run at a school that is very academic and very competitive with a good program for my career choice. For this next season of cross country I hope to set a great PR in the 5k with a time of 15:45 and have a state title. I hope to compete for a very grand school and have success.
