Overall feelings about the race: I felt strong and felt my surges throughout the race fell in the right places, it was an amazing experience.
Best part of the race:  The last half mile- my goal was to not let anyone pass me, because in the past I've struggled with a final kick and even with tremendoulsy speedy girls on my tail I was able to hold them off.
 

Personal note:  I could have never acheived the level I did today without the support of my family and coach Kristen Nicollini. Any time I started to feel the demand of living the runner/student/whatever life- I knew I had them to count on to give me support and smiles. They are my heroes!
