Overall feelings about the race: It went pretty well. My goal was not to go out too hard the first mile and then just to pick off as many guys as I could. My goal was to get All-American, but 27th was a good finish for me since I was 9th in my region.
Best part of the race:  Definitely the finish. The course is really nice, but man it's tough compared to the flat courses back in Illinois.
The FLCC Experience:  "WOW" would be the best word to describe it. This is an experience I will never forget. Also,I am so thankful to Foot Locker, the Hotel del Coronado staff, and etc. who put this on for all of us.

Personal note:  Thanks to my family and the huge York fan base for supporting me not just for this race but for all my races these past four years.
