It was an absolutely beautiful day with temps in the mid 50s and rising
to the low 60s.  The skies were clear with no wind.  This brought out
a large crowd, 78 total, 28 of which were Nielson newbie runners.

The most improved for the month went to one of youngsters, Jessalyn Rombocos,
as she was a whopping 3 1/2 minutes better than her handicap.  That is outstanding.
Jessalyn left before we could get a shirt to her, so please get one from us
next time, Jessalyn.

Many runners were under their handicap this month, as the warmer weather
really helps to get the speed going.

We are getting a large mix of runners, from young (grade schoolers) to just a
bit older (70s), with several families coming out to participate.  This is
exactly what the Nielson Challenge is about.  We'll see you all again next month.
