Overall feelings about the race: My race went okay. My legs were very tired throughout the race but I worked hard to finish the race due to my hard work throughout the season.
Best part of the race:  Finishing my race was the best part of my race.
The FLCC Experience:  My experience went very well. Footlocker treats you very well and being in San Diego puts it completely to the top.

Personal note:  Work as hard as you can every day and be smart about your running. With that, you will have a successful season.
