Focused, motivated, and resilient are just a few words to describe Landon Hart, a Weber Warrior, enthusiastic athlete, and likable seasonal Parks and Recreation employee. Landon began running when he was in third grade, following in the footsteps of his mom and three older brothers.
All summer long, Landon has been preparing for his senior year and upcoming cross country and track season by training and running roughly 60 miles each week. Yes, you read that correctly!
Landon’s favorite event is the one mile, with his best time coming in at four minutes and 26 seconds. To put how fast this is into perspective, the average in-shape runner usually finishes one mile in about 9 to 10 minutes. His ultimate goal is to finish the mile in under 4 minutes and 10 seconds. We are rooting for you, Landon, and can’t wait to see this happen!
Running has given Landon something to be proud of and be successful in. It has taught him that not everything is going to be perfect and that he may have bad races and must bounce back. He loves how independent running is and that the work he puts in is what he gets out of it. He doesn’t have to rely on anyone else for his individual success.
When he’s not running and focusing on faster times, Landon loves skateboarding, hiking, or anything that keeps him active.
We’ve thoroughly enjoyed working with him these past few months and wish him all the best!
