Albert Noah sent in the following race report from Down Hill at Dawn:
"PR’d at (Mostly) Downhill @ Dawn! Wasn’t expecting that at all!

My training for the past couple months has been almost nonexistent and I have been running races by the seat of my pants. Hopefully that will change over the summer but who knows. J

I would like to thank Greg Jackson because he is the reason that I PR’d! I was planning on having a leisurely long run rather than race a half marathon. Unfortunately, at the turnaround Greg caught my attention and said “Hey Albert!”, and like a kitten after a ball yarn I just had to give chase. I thought I had no chance of catching him but the chase is part of the fun. Greg and I are fairly evenly matched as far as running goes. Sometimes I beat him, sometimes he beats me, but that's what makes it fun.

I'm not sure if my chasing him had any affect on his race but I know he PR’d also. So thanks Greg! My calves are SORE, my quads are trashed, and my glutes hurt and it's all your fault. Thanks for the PR buddy, I owe you one!"
