Overall feelings about the race: I felt good throughout the race and am happy with the results.
Best part of the race:  I think my best part was at the start, because I wanted to get out well, but not too fast. My goal was to not go out to fast and die later. I think I got out well at the start and then moved up well throughout the race.
The FLCC Experience:  I think my experience at Foot Locker is one that I will never forget. I loved all the activities and the downtime. It was nice to be around so many great runners throughout the country. 

Personal note:  Thank you for supporting me and thinking of me during this exciting experience. Love you all!
