Overall feelings about the race: I didn't run my best race today, but overall, it was a great experience. I went out with the front pack, but ended up dropping off and placing thirteenth.
Best part of the race:  I couldn't say what the best part of my race was, since I wasn't feeling great throughout the entire thing. The second half was a good opportunity to practice staying mentally strong even though I wasn't running my best.
The FLCC Experience:  Meeting so many great people and getting to run in such an exciting race are experiences that I will remember for the rest of my life. Thank you Footlocker! 

Personal note:  Thank you to my family for all your support and encouragement, and thank you to my team for making the last few years of running so much fun.
