Overall feelings about the race: I went out way too fast and I sprained my foot during the first 100 meters, but the thought of dropping out never crossed my mind. I ran a 2:12 first 800 and then went through at 4:47 for the first mile which its wicked fast even for a 5k on a track. I wasn't happy with my finish but I am excited to be able to come back next year and use this past experience to do a lot better.
Best part of the race:  The best part of my race was my finish because even though I was a little embarrassed where I was, I still finished fast and strong across the finish line.
The FLCC Experience:  So far my Foot Locker experience has been everything I was told it would be and more. I love everything about this trip and they when they treat everyone like a king and queen is unreal. As a Juinior this year I can't wait to be here next year as a Senior.

Personal note:  Thanks for all the good luck wishes and support everyone has given me, you guys are the best!
