Overall feelings about the race: My race went pretty well. I didn't feel very good but was still happy with my finish because everyone at this race is so talented! I tried not to go out to fast so I was able to pass some people toward the end.
Best part of the race:
The best part of my race was the second time we went down the huge downhill because it gave me some momentum for my final kick.
The FLCC Experience:  I have loved my Foot Locker experience! I love being surrounded by all of the amazing runners and people. Of course I also enjoyed coming to warm San Diego and being able to go to the beach in December.
I want to thank my coach, Greg Russick, for 4 wonderful years of Grand Haven Cross Country! I also want to thank my parents, especially my mom who has coached me for the past 6 weeks, for all of their support and encouragement.
