A perfect July day brought out another large crowd to the Nielson
Challenge, with 139 completing the 2 mile run.  A special guest
at the July Nielson was Janet Nielson, her kids and grandchildren.
The Nielson Challenge is named after the late Larry Nielson, and
Janet is Larry's wife.  Janet is very appreciative that the
club continues the monthly Nielson Challenge in her husband's
name.  She was also really happy to see the new painting on the
Nielson sign, courtesy of the Park & Rec department.  The sign
had been tagged by vandals, but now it looks great again.

This month's most improved runner was Jim Massa, a long time
Nielson runner.  Jim was a whopping 4:17 under his handicap.
Way to go, Jim!

Also of note is Mike Stephens.  He ran the Veterans' Home Run
5K at 7:00 AM, and then headed over to the Nielson for the 
8:00 AM start.  He then headed back to the Veterans' Home Run
to pick up his award and participate in the random prize drawings.
Now that's a dedicated runner.

Please join us again in August.
