It was a beautiful morning with temps in the mid 40s, mostly sunny and no wind.
What a great day for a run.  83 agreed with that sentiment and ran the March
Nielson Challenge.  With the warmer temperatures, more people than normal visited
after finishing the race.

Chad Halsten was this month's most improved, as he took more than 9 minutes off of
his handicap.  That's an eye-popping improvment.  Chad is an elementary school teacher,
so it must be handling all of the students that are getting his fast-twitch muscles
to perform.

We figure by next month, we'll see more green in the grass and other signs of
springs, so come and join us on April 5th.
