Montpelier Mile this Sunday!

Rowly revels in the heat at Paul Mailman
Hi All,
The summer is just too short! I had so many things I wanted to do this past weekend. I ended up racing the Newport Triathlon (just $25 which is a great deal for triathlons) on Saturday and doing the Central Vermont Cycling Tour to benefit the Cross Vermont Trail on Sunday. I was really torn about not doing the 10 miler and after realizing that Sue Hackney didn’t participate and Dot Martin was just getting in some LSD the day after placing 2nd OA F at the Toughman Triathlon, I regret not trying to score some big points there. Not sure how I am going to make it to 5 this year, but I am signed up for Stowe and hope to make it to Bear Swamp. That will get me to 3 with a few races left to go.

Hey you guys,

It turns out that we had a celebrity in our midst yesterday at the Paul Mailman 10-Miler although we didn’t know it at the time. No, it wasn’t Paul Mailman himself (although he and his family did attend in 2014). An anonymous club member told me yesterday afternoon that she was chatting with a man after the race. He mentioned to her that he was a former winner of the race back in the day. I contacted Bob Murphy and he e-mailed me race results from 1985. (Who else would have 31-year-old race results handy?) The winner of the Montpelier 10 Mile Race on June 29, 1985 happened to be Richard Weinstein of Brighton, MA in a time of 53:57. Welcome back, Richard!

Paul Mailman 10 Miler this Sunday!

Your generosity is appreciated by these future CVR members!
Hi All,

I finally did register for the Stowe 8 Miler. It has been a long time since I’ve run it. It never fit well with triathlon season, but I’ve got to contribute to the team total and there aren’t any really important tri’s I want to do that weekend. $250 goes to the biggest total team, so you can be as slow as you want and can run the 5K and you get CVR/ORS race series points and help CVR in the contest. So what is your excuse?
