    I just wanted to thank all in the extended running community for their thought and concerns for Noah. I have received numerous texts, emails etc from concerned coaches, runners and fans of our sport. Noah is appreciative of the attention this has gotten as well. The running community is truely ane big family and we always look out for our own. Be safe and keep training!!!

    @altimari Very glad that he is doing better and that they were caught.

    I think part of their sentence should be... line them up against a wall, ala a firing squad, give the cross country team like 12 dozen eggs. And let the team pelt the hell out of them to see how the like it.

    Great to hear that he is doing fine and will make a full recovery.

    This is a sad, sad affair but an important lesson that as a runner you have to always be vigilant. Not everyone is going to respect your right to "peacefully" train on one of our nation's highways.
