Winners already
To the editor: I've recently started to take my daily walk at Pearson Metropark for shade and aesthetics. Along with dog walkers, joggers and walkers, I have noticed groups of teens running the path for cross country practice.
On my most recent walk, I was cheerfully greeted by every group of students that ran past me. I heard the echoes of their greetings to others along the path. After the third of fourth group that greeted, I noticed one of the runners had a Genoa Cross Country shirt on.
I would like to commend the students and coaches of the team for their positivity along the trail. In this tumultuous time, it is great to see young people, up early, training to better themselves, and greeting adults in a genuine, positive manner.
Most teens do not do this on their own. Kudos to those who showed these teens such etiquette. Good luck, runners, in whatever the season holds for you. You are already winners in my book.
