Overall feelings about the race: It went really well Im very excited because i have made huge leaps from last year, last year I got 25 and this year I pulled a 16 and dropped my time by 30 seconds. This is also my last high school meet before I go off to college, so I was really wanting to enjoy the race and have a good time as well.
Best part of the race:  The best part was the introductions, I think its really cool how they introduce everyone in the beginning. This is one of the only races where they do that.
The FLCC Experience:  It has been the best, I came last year and had the best time meeting new people and hanging out at this amazing hotel. This has been by far my best cross country experience in my whole life.  

Personal note:  I want to thank my mom and dad, for keeping me humble and making sure I get the best out of every situation no matter what it is. I love you both so much and am going to miss you when I go to college. I also want to thank my brother and sister for allowing my parents to come to my races when they also had things going on. I also want to thank Coach Schrader for helping to train me and getting me this far, if it hadnt been for you I would be here today, thank you so so much for putting your time and effort into my running workouts and meeting me when its raining outside or freezing cold. Thank you to all my friends for the great messages going into my big races you all have been great:)
