Overall feelings about the race: My race was really tiring. The start went out really fast and that really hit me during the second loop of the course. Not to mention the struggle to get through the mud and the rain.
Best part of the race:  The best part of my race was during the beginning. I got a really good start and was in the top 25 but the pace just hit me hard and I faded a bit. My finish was also good because I did catch someone right at the end and that is an accomplishment especially in this competetive of a race.
The FLCC Experience:  The experience was great! I've had a really fun time and I've made a lot of great new friends! The activities they have set up have been really great and I've really enjoyed myself. 

Personal note:  I would like to say thankyou to my coach Mr. Muller. Without the training he put me through and the time he's spent with my running I don't think I would have made it as far as I did. I want to say thanks to my parents who have been crazy nuts about my running season and my grandparents who have been extremely supportive. My teammates have been very into my season and they have been nothing but supportive, I couldn't ask for a better team and a better group of friends. Not only my parents and my grandparets but my extended family has been really great with support and just been really following my season and it means a lot to me that all these people are ralleyed behind me!
