Overall feelings about the race: My race went well. I got out better than I expected and I had a lot of fun running. The race was really tough and more competitive than anything I have ever done before but it was a great experience and I'm really happy that I got the chance to run here.
Best part of the race:  The best part of my race was the first lap of the course. I got out fast and I was enjoying all the cheers from the crowd. The weather was also nice and cool which was really awesome! I got a little tired for the second lap.
The FLCC Experience:  Coming to Footlocker has been the most amazing experience. It has always been my dream to be able to race here and it was more fun than expected. I enjoyed meeting all the other runners and getting to spend time with them. This whole experience was a dream come true. 

Personal note:  Thank you all for being so supportive! There are no beter teammates, friends, and family members in the world. Thanks for cheering me on, wishing me good luck, and making me cards and such! You made my experience even more amazing! =]
