Letter: Cheers motivated runners during races

I want to give a big shout out to all of the Grand Forks residents who cheered, clapped, rang cowbells and stood out in the cold for the Wild Hog runners on Saturday. As a 10K runner, I found all of the support and encouragement helpful as I jogged around Grand Forks that chilly morning.

Participating in the Wild Hog Marathon events would not be nearly as enjoyable without the crowds and individuals cheering us on — it definitely gives me a boost of motivation and helps me run faster, too!
