Overall feelings about the race: The race didn't go as well as i would have liked, but just making it here is a great achievement. I felt great for the first mile, but then my legs tightened up. I just tried to finish as strong as i could and give it my all.
Best part of the race:  The best part of the race was just being here and having the opportunity to compete.
The FLCC Experience:  My footlocker experience was amazing even though my race wasn't the best. The athletes here are some of the greatest people i have ever met. The weekend overall was extremely well organized and they treated us great.It was an experience of a life time that i will never forget. 

Personal note:  I want to thank my parents for always being so supportive and giving me this opportunity to race and pursue my dreams. I also want to thank my family and friends that have always supported me throughout my high school cross country career. I am very lucky to have great coaches that have helped me along the way.
