Cory Puffett
Overall feelings about the race: Poorly, I had a bit of a IT Band injury going in and a little under a mile in it flared up. However, considering what I had to deal with I am relatively pleased with my performance.
Best part of the race:  As I was coming into the finish I was able to pass one runner on the sprint, and then of course crossing the line and knowing it was over was an incredible feeling as well.
The FLCC Experience:  Amazing, in one word. I have really enjoyed this weekend and I am a little bummed that I am a senior and won't have another year to have this experience. Footlocker has done an amazing job with this meet. 

Personal note:  I would just want to thank them for their support through my success and dissapointments. That support has meant so much to me and has helped get me through some moments when I otherwise might have lost focus or confidence in myself.
