Note: We goofed when setting the time on the overhead clock, so there
was a difference between the overhead clock and the actual timing box
(chronomix) that is used to record everybody's time.  So if you timed
yourself on your watch, hopefully your watch time matches the actual
time we have posted for you.  If not, please let us know and we'll look
into it further.  Contact DavidSorenson@msn.com with any concerns.  

It was another beautiful morning for a run with mostly clear skies and
temperatures in the 40s.  Colorado Springs Utilities threw us for a bit
of a loop as they had some of the trails blocked off for construction.
Thus a slight modification was made to the Nielson course, but it was
still 2 miles.  From what we understand, it may be this way for a few
months.

This month's winner was Shane Swearingen, who was 1:16 under his
handicap.  Congratulations Shane!  We have a t-shirt for you.

This month marks the end of the 12-month cycle for the yearly Nielson
winner.  The winner for the past 12 months is Elliotte Brownlee, who
has 2 wins.  Nobody else has more than one win.  Elliotte will be
presented with the Nielson plaque at the PPRR Membership Dinner &
Fall Series Awards on November 18th at the downtown YMCA.

A new 12-month Nielson cycle starts in December.  Come out and join
us.  There is usually a smaller turnout during the winter months, so
you'll have a better chance of running away as the month's winner.
