Overall feelings about the race: My race went well. My goal was to go out there, give it my all, have fun, and hopefully get in the top 25 so I was happy with my performance. It was an amazing feeling to be running with some of the most elite athletes in the nation and I feel so lucky to have had that opportunity!
Best part of the race:  Definitely my finishing kick. I usually don't have much finishing speed but today I passed a few girls in the final stretch which was exciting for me. I was happy to have the strength to finish my race competitively.
The FLCC Experience:  It has been an incredible experience! I wouldn't trade it for anything. The atmosphere is extremely inspiring with Olympians and former Footlocker champions speaking to us and I have made some amazing new friends that share my passion and love for cross country. They have treated us like champions and have made the entire Footlocker experience something I will remember forever. 

Personal note:  I would like to first thank all of my family, friends and coaches for cheering me on during the race and for supporting me with love the entire season. A special thanks to my coach, Brent Thorne, for his dedication to my success and to my parents and sister Emily, for believing in my potential and helping me to be the best I can be. Also thanks to my teammates who have shared this amazing journey with me- the body paint was so fun! Thanks again to everyone- I love you all!
