A beautiful November day brought out a large group for
the November Nielson Challenge.  Temps were in the upper
40s with partly cloudy skies.

Andy Rinne and Adam Rich gathered together some fast guys
to see if they could work together and break 10 minutes.
Three runners did break 10 minutes: Adam Rich and Robbie
Young in 9:48, and Ryan Hafer in 9:55.  Justin Ricks was
4th in 10:01.  It was fun to watch them.  They looked so
effortlessly, especially when they came through the 1-mile
mark as a pack of 4.  Thanks Andy, for arranging all of this.

The most improved runner for the month was Kathy Landis.
This was the 2nd win of the year for Kathy, and her husband
Brian has also won 2 times this year.  They are the only
runners who have won twice in the current 12-month cycle,
which ends with this race.  The tiebreaker for the yearly
winner goes to Kathy because her combined under handicapped
time for her 2 wins is 7:58.143, compared to Brian's 6:59.523.
Congratulations to both Kathy and Brian.  You two rock!

Join us again in December.  A new 12-month yearly cycle will
start.
