42 degrees with lows clouds, fog and drizzle made for a damp
May Nielson Challenge.  But we still had 63 runners show up for
the event.  That's not bad at all considering the weather and
that two other races were held on the same day.

This month's most improved runner was Brian Landis, who was
4:12 under his handicap.  This is the second win for the family
in the recent past, as Brian's wife Kathy won in March.  They
have both been running a lot and also have a 60 mile bike ride
coming up soon.  Their hard work is paying off.

Today's event was the first event of the Summer Series, so
everybody who ran today also gets credit for the 1st Summer
Series event.

We'll see y'all in June.  Maybe summer will actually be here
then.
