Jacob Thomson
Overall feelings about the race: I went out aggressive and was in the lead through the mile. After that I stayed up front and ended up finishing 5th after running a very hard last 1K. I left everything I had out on the course and wouldn't change a thing.
Best part of the race:  Crossing the finish line and knowing I had finished in the top 5.
The FLCC Experience:  I love Foot Locker. This is my second time here and I am grateful for everything Foot Locker does for us. We get to hangout with people who go through the same thing as I do everyday is special.

Personal note:  I just want to thank everyone. My coaches for setting me up to be in this position. My family, friends, and teammates for being so supportive. Also, to my school, the staff, administration, and the whole Holy Cross community has been very supportive of me over the years.
