Wow, what a turnout.  The temps were around freezing on a
sunny day, but 110 runners still showed up for the February
Nielson Challenge.  This included lots of the younger folks,
which we love to see.  Of course, we also love to see the
old farts as well.

This month's winner was Derek Gorthy, who was 3:18 under
his handicap.  It's obvious that Derek has been putting in
some good training.  Great job, Derek!
