Overall feelings about the race: I went out pretty conservatively. I was in about 20th for the first mile, made a move and put myself in about 15th at mile 2. I picked off about 5 guys with about a half mile to go. With about 150 meters to go, I kicked very hard. I went from 10th to 6th in a matter of about 15 seconds.
Best part of the race:  The best part of the race was for sure the last 150 meters. I've never kicked that hard before.
The FLCC Experience:  My footlocker experience was the most amazing thing I have ever done. The hotel itself is so nice! They treat us so well here and everything we need, we get. The race is so chilled out. I wasn't nervous before the race. This is something I will never forget.  

Personal note:  Thanks alot guys for being behind me all season long. I couldn't have done it without you. Love, Jake
