Paige Gilchrist
Overall feelings about the race: My race wasn't as good as I had hoped, but it was an amazing experience and I truly never thought that I would be able to say that I raced at Foot Locker Nationals anyway, so I'm chalking it all up to an unforgettable weekend.
Best part of the race:  The best part came after about the 1.5 mile mark when I mentally re-entered the race and began working through the field a little better.
The FLCC Experience:  This has been a weekend I will remember forever. The whole Foot Locker team has been so accommodating and helpful, and has made it a prime weekend for high school runners.

Personal note:  To everyone who has been supportive, helpful, available, and encouraging for the last four years; thank you. You all have made the difference.
