Overall feelings about the race: My race went well. I was pleased with the way I ran and am thankful for the experience. The most difficult part of the race was the abundance of turns that made it difficult to get into a rhythm. Overall, the race was awesome and the crowd was amazing.
Best part of the race:  The best part of the race was all of the fans cheering us down the home stretch.
The FLCC Experience:  Amazing...Footlocker was definitely a once in a lifetime experience that I'll remember for the rest of my life. It was awesome to meet and hang out with all of the best cross country runners from across the nation. I want to say a big thank you to all of the members of the footlocker staff who treated us all like kings!  

Personal note:  First and foremost, I want to thank my coach Sean McCafferty who has prepared me for the best cross country season of my high school career. I'm so thankful of him getting me ready for the big meets at the most important time of the season. In addition, I want to thank my parents for supporting me throughout my running career and coming to see me in San Diego. Last but definitely not least, I want to say a big thank you to all of my friends and teammates who have been so supportive and who have made competing for Holmdel High School such an awesome experience. THANKS!
