      Frank -
      Thanks for that insight. Congratulations on a well run race yesterday! For
      those that don't know, Frank won his division at the Holiday Lake 50k (35
      miles actually) with an impressive 5:14 - just 2 weeks after running 18+
      hours at Rocky Raccoon. I was fortunate enough to leap frog with him most
      of the 2nd half at Holiday Lake. Way to go Frank!
