Overall feelings about the race: Considering recent illnesses,it was a positive way to finish the year. I was very glad to have been able to participate in such a prestigious field.
Best part of the race:
The beginning of the race was slightly overwhelming,but it felt really good to finish by passing various people and making ground in the second half of the race.
The FLCC Experience:  In general, I was pleased to have been able to enjoy this experience. I was excited to race against so many incredible runners and to be able to meet other girls and boys who share my same passion for training and racing. Everything was well organized and well-run. It was an exciting opportunity and the organizers seem to care greatly about all the participants and all their hopes.
Firstly, I would like to thank my school and my whole community for supporting me through the nationals and showing interest. Moreover, I would like to thank my coaches and family for their undying support and assistance throughout the season. I could not have made it through without all of their help.
