Amelia Paladino
Overall feelings about the race: the race was really tough, because when you put the top forty runner together in the country its gonna be an intense race. it was a good experience though because back at home everyone here is used to being the top dog so coming here you really get a good feeling of how you compare to everybody else.
Best part of the race:  The best part was definitely getting to run with all of the south girls. I could look up during my race and see all of thier red uniforms and it makes you really excited and motivated to do well for all of them
The FLCC Experience:  this is my first time coming and it has been one of the best experiences ever. Ive met some girls who i know will be friends for life! I hope that during my race I could just glorify God while using the legs he gave me!

Personal note:  I just want to say thank you to my coaches and my parents especially my mom who put all of this time into me and my training. They helped to shape me be the person and runner i am today andi wouldnt be here without them!
