Wow, what another huge turnout at the April Nielson
Challenge, with 146 runners.  This is the 3rd highest
turnout we've ever had for the Nielson.  The weather
was fine, but a little chilly to start.  I wonder what's
going to happen when the weather actually gets really nice.

This month's most improved runner was Janna Rombocos, who was
2:12 under her handicap.  This is becoming a family affair,
as Matthew Rombocos was the month's most improved runner in February.

Also noteworthy this month is Merideth Brodeur.  She has been
running the Nielson monthly all through her pregnancy.  In March
she was far along in the pregancy on Nielson day, walked the race,
and delivered a baby girl three days later.  She did the Nielson
again in April, this time with her baby in her arms.  Congratulations
Merideth, you looked great out there!

Please join us again in May.
