We had a record-breaking 80 participants today, 76 of whom signed up.  Those of you holding popsicle
stick numbers 13, 45, 46, 47 let me know so that you'll get credit for your fine efforts. zguntam@hotmail.com.
Conditions this morning were yucky, with ice fields and frozen tundra throughout the course. This month's
repeat winner is the awesome KEVIN KINNEY, who edged out his nearest opponent Randy Ward by 1.4 seconds.
WOW! Excellent feat (feet), Kevin!
A special thank you to our volunteers, and of course, all you fine runners.
Join us on Saturday, 5 March, 2005, for the next Nielson Challenge.
