My name is Carson Horspool and I like to party. I'm a Senior at Pine View High School in St. George Utah. Captain of the Cross Country team. I'm not married and don't have any children because I'm only 17 and I make good choices.. most of the time. Love competing and Track and Cross country are perfect examples of competition.

Nice run this morning. Ran a different route up on the road that takes you out to Snow Canyon and we dropped down on that super steep hill that leads down to Diagonal Street. Then just ran back and extended a teeny bit. Felt pretty good except for the back of my right ankle is kinda hurting. I'll make sure to ice it later.

Well the guys team has decided that I'm not a good captain and that I should be kicked off. It really sucks that they don't understand that I work my b*tt off in everything I do, and that they are clearly friggin jealous of how much better than them I am. It really sucks when you let those things ruin your judgement about how awesome someone is. I just feel really, really sorry for them. Ran with Alex and Evan and talked about the show 24 so that was cool.
