My daugther who is a student at Wellesley sent me this note on Marathon monday which I thought I'd share:

wanted to pass this on cuz its so cool

(from a friend here at wellesley)

One of the runners (older guy) threw me a letter in a plastic baggie while

he was running, and this is what it said:

Wellesley Woman,

Thank you for being here. You have always been here for me in this race.

At the halfway poing in this journey I look to you, standing and

cheering, to give strength for the second half. Your smile and wave fill

my being with courage and power. your face glows bright and warm, keeping

me content and blissful. You wait for me patiently as you have for a

century. I long to crest the horizon that is caressed by your gaze.

Thank you for today. Thank you for this moment. Thank you for the

forever, we are destined to share.

You are here today as am I. I am having a glorious time, as are you.

Thank you eternally,

Mike Dobberstein

Dang it, that's so cool! *Wipes a tear*

What a nice idea... to pass a note to a spectator or volunteer at a race. What a huge impact it makes.
