The LJS doesn’t run general thank-yous in their letters to the editor, so here is a letter I submitted to the paper that won’t otherwise see the light of day.
Thank you to the thousands of Lincolnites who once again came out to support the runners in this year’s marathon. Even though I use the crowd as a selling point when talking friends into signing up for the race, they’re still always surprised at the level of enthusiastic support. Your cheers and high-fives are greatly appreciated and a big part of why I – and surely thousands of others – come back each year.

Damn, I wish I could think of sotmiheng smart like that!
