A chilly morning greeted the May Nielson Challenge runners.
The temps were in the low 30s, but there was lots of sunshine.
The grass had a bit of a frozen frost from cold overnight temps.

But it was another 1st Saturday of the month, so we had another
Nielson Challenge.  Sometime we'll figure out how many consecutive
Nielson Challenge's we've had.  It's probably in the 300s.

The winner this month was Ron Hawley, who was more than 5 minutes
under his handicap time.  Way to go, Ron!

Join us again on June 7th for another edition of the Nielson
Challenge.  It should be a bucket load of fun.
