Overall feelings about the race: My race went well, the first mile went out pretty fast and i found myself in 38th place. I gradually worked my way up into the top 25 by not going up the hill too fast on the first loop. The second time around the course i was at a steadier pace that i could maintain for the rest of the race. I felt pretty comfortable at the pace we were going at towards the in of the course. In conclusion, in general, i feel that i gave 100% and i am very pleased and excited with my 24th place as a freshman.
Best part of the race:  The best part of my race was the valley loop right before the hill. I have been doing many hil repeats and hill training this year, so i felt that those rolling hills were the best part of the race for me.

Personal note:  I would love to tell my friends, family, and coaches how much it means to me that they have supported me during my highschool running career. It makes me so happy to know that they will always be at the start and finish of my races cheering me on and supporting me. They have made my running career so memorable.
