Overall feelings about the race: It went well. I went out a little bit slow. It is a hard course, so I am happy with how I did. Also, the field is super stacked, so I can't be too mad about my finish.
Best part of the race:  The finish was pretty good for me. I was able to pass one guy on my way to the line, and I gained some ground on the other guys ahead of me.
The FLCC Experience:  The experience has been awesome. The food is great and the competitors are super nice. The hotel is amazing as well. Now that the race is over, I can relax and enjoy myself more.

Personal note:  Thanks so much for all the support and encouragement. I am so grateful to have the family and friends that I do. You guys are awesome.
