With temps in the mid 20s, we had a smaller than normal group for the
December Nielson Challenge.  We were actually fortunate with the
weather, as the temps the previous morning were below zero.

Curtis Hamstra brought hot chocolate for the volunteers, which was much
appreciated.  Thank you, Curtis.

Only 2 runners were under their handicap this month, and it was Ariel Petros-Good
that posted a strong time and was 1:44 under her handicap.  Congratulations, Ariel!
You were rocking.

At the next Nielson Challenge, we'll be in a new year and a new decade.  We
hope to see you there.
