Overall feelings about the race: Overall the race was a success. I got boxed in at the beginning, but I was slowly able to work my way up after the mile...I went from 20somethingith to 10th in the second mile, and kept that position until my kick.
Best part of the race:  The finish... I kicked passed several runners and moved into a single digit finish!
 

Personal note:  Ship XC team, "Thanks so much for all the support you have given me this XC season... I couldn't do it without you!!!" Special note to my sisters Margeaux and Reynah..."sorry I missed your birthday." Also I want to thank my coach from Shippensburg Highschool, "Coach Holtry thank you for putting up with me this season, I am looking forward to that PIZZA!!!" To my CVAC girls: "Thanks for training with me and for all your encouragement over the last month. You all believed in me, and supported me all the way...GO PA! JJ, thanks for being such a positive part of my life." I absolutely love you all! Thankyou God! Love, Neely
