Overall feelings about the race: My race went very well today, alot better then I thought it would. There were so many talented girls out there today that I didn't know what to expect. I can in 9th and am very excited!
Best part of the race:
Going down the hill on the last part of the race. I felt really strong and powerful moving down.
The FLCC Experience:  My Footlocker experience has been awesome! The friends I have met are so much fun and everything has been great. The race was great too, and I will deffinately never forget it or this amazing experience.
I want to tell my parents thank you so much for being there every single race. My mom never misses one and I just want to say you are truly amazing! I also want to say thanks to all of my friends for giving me support and motivating me before every race! Hiromi, especially, you are awesome!!!!!
