Temps were in the upper 20s and partly cloudy skies.  It was actually decent
running weather, and 48 came out to participate in the Nielson Challenge. We
are getting lots of families participating now and the ages range from grade 
school age to the 70s.

Kevin Wood was the winner this month with another incredible improvement, as he
was 5:40 under his handicap.  Congratulations Kevin!  We do have a shirt for you.

This is the first month of the new 12-month cycle of the yearly Nielson award, so
Kevin takes the early clubhouse led in the yearly award category.

January 5th is the next Nielson, and we'd love to have you join us.
