This weekend the NCAC Conference Championship track meet will be held at Kenyon. It will be my final meet as a varsity athlete. What follows is a transcript of the speech I gave to the team at the final team meeting of the year. This speech would not have been possible without taking Rhetoric in Antiquity with Professor Serfass, certainly the best class I have taken at Kenyon after Epic and History with Professor Levithan. It may be a bit more than 500 words, but each one has been honed for rhetorical perfection.
