On a comfortable spring morning, 64 runners showed up to tackle the
Nielson 2 Mile Challenge.  The weather was partly cloudy with temps
in the 40s.  Olympic runner Justin Chaston was the first to cross the
finish line in 10:01, but the most improved runner was H.J. Arnold,
who finished 1:55 under his handicap.  Way to go, H.J!

We will all be back again next month.  The May Nielson 2 Mile
Challenge is the first event of the new PPRR Summer Series.

Thanks again to all of you.
