Overall feelings about the race: I think it went really well. I tried my hardest, and today, that was the best I could do. The running conditions were pretty good, as I like the rain and a little mud. The first two and a half miles I was with the leaders, but they left me on the hill. I was passed by the 3rd place girl in the final stretch.
Best part of the race:  The best part was probably the first loop. It felt pretty good, and it was still anybody's race. I still had some energy, and I was looking forward to the later stages of the race.
The FLCC Experience:  So far, my experience has been great. All the other runners are really cool to talk to, and everyone has some story to share. The Footlocker chaperones make sure that everything is perfect, and they are also really nice to talk to. While the weather hasn't been the the typical "Sunny San Diego", San Diego is still a really cool place to go, and has a great course for a national championships. 

Personal note:  I would like to tell my friends and family that they have been great supporters, and I really appreciate all they have done to help me get this far.
