Overall feelings about the race: For me it was paitfull because I injured my ankle a week ago during a race at nike nationls,so I did not even expect me racing.I havent been running since nike so I just wanted to finish a race.The race itself wasnt so fast so i just tried to stay in touch with the leading group and than I will see.But the last downhill just killed my foot.Anyway I am content with my fifth place
Best part of the race:  I thing that my best part was after a 2K,I wanted to gave up the race because of pain,but than I saw all these crowds and I was:man I juct cant give up,that would be embarrassing,so I fortunately keep running.So that was the most important moment in the race for me.
The FLCC Experience:  All footlocker experience is sweet,all people here are awesome,a lot of hot girls,nice hotel,stars,so the atmosphere of these races is very cool,but I am glag that the races are over and I can finnaly enjoy it. 

Personal note:  Yeah,I really wanna say thanks to my host familly for all support which they have been giving me for all the time.Also to all friends in Grand Rapids and obviously my familly and coach back home so thank you!!!
