Well, the weather was better than the past 3 months.  The temps were in the
low 20s, no wind, with partly cloudy skies.  This brought out more runners
than in past months.  There were 41 runners who registered, and another 10-15
high school track runners who were running the event unofficially for their
daily workout.  Thus overall, we had a good group.

One of the new runners was Michael Schenk from EON studios, who donates the
shirts to the monthly winners.  Thank you, Michael, for your generous donations.

This month's winner was Josh Synes.  He was 1 minute and 45 seconds under his
handicap.  Congratulations, Josh.  Please come back next month to defend your
title.

We are hoping that temps will be above freezing next month, so please come out
and join us.
