Jillian Rosen
Overall feelings about the race: It went pretty well. I was sick last week and I definetely felt it, feeling really weak and all. The hills were tough; it seemed like we were either going up hill or down hill the whole race.
Best part of the race:  I liked my finish because I was able to pass people and make top 15. The last half mile I started to kick, and although it hurt a lot, it was my favorite part.
 

Personal note:  I want to say thank you to my mom, dad, and sister for supporting me no matter what. Also, thanks to my coach, Terry Jessup, for encouraging me and being there all the time. Also, hey Metroplex Striders!!
