Virginia Hine completely dead
Overall feelings about the race: Off the start, I got in good position and was in the top ten going into the first curve. But after the first 800m, I started to settle into my race pace. After the mile marker, I began to feel somewhat woosy(sp?), and my body felt very heavy. I ended up feeling completely dead on the final stretch, and my body shut down. However, I am definitely glad that I got the opportunity to experience the race and be in this atmosphere with suchgreat athletes.
Best part of the race:  The best part of the race was definitely the start, because the race atmosphere and all the fans cheering made me feel very light and excited.
