Henry Reich is the top runner for the Grinnell XC team, and is also a top student (4.0, etc). This Saturday he was supposed to go to Minneapolis to interview for a Rhodes Scholarship. Problem is, Grinnell is running in the D3 nationals at the same time. After much thought, Reich has decided to stick w/ his team, and forego the interview, putting the group above individual acomplishments.
He wrote an amazing letter to his teammates explaining his decision - if it doesn't fire them up to each run a few seconds faster this weekend, there's no hope for human nature.
