Perfect summit day for Sandy Colvin and Gail Pelkey
(with not yet CVR member Chuck Schwartz)
Hi All,

The CVR/ORS series continues with the Northfield Savings Bank 5K on Sept 3. The 1 mile is at 9:30, the 5K at 10:30. Rowly tells me he has enough volunteers, so all of you can participate. I think a Saturday morning 5K is great because you can get your race in and then play or work as hard as you want the rest of the long weekend without worrying about how it will affect your race. Bring your friends and neighbors to help Northfield celebrate 5 years of recovery from Irene.

Leafpeepers 2016 coming right up! Join the party!

Hi All,

The August CVR meeting at Beth’s had a talkative group of 18 members present. Here are a few tidbits to share:
Leafpeepers is nearing half full at 431 half marathoners registered and 139 in the 5K. Encourage your friends and family to sign up soon. June Burr is starting to gather the list of Leafpeepers volunteers. Motivational signs need updating–a fun volunteer opportunity for some artistic types and you can still run the race.
Mutt Strutt still needs a new Race Director or it will not happen next year. Let me know if you might want to help.
Berlin Pond and Leafpeepers need certification. John Valentine and I are the current certifiers, but would love to train anybody who would like to help out.
Discussion on including a longer race like the GMAA Common to Common 30K again in the CVR/ORS series for 2017
Donna and Eric will again provide a spaghetti supper for all participants at Sodom Pond 4 Miler Sept 14.

Hi All,

I was in Omaha for a triathlon last weekend and am once again impressed at how nice a place we live in to run. I think it was the ugliest (OK maybe one of the ugliest) run in a race I’ve done, but we were supposed to be excited by the fact that we ran around the dirt part of the outfield in the TD Ameritrade Stadium for the turnaround of the 10K. The highlight of the run actually is that Dot Martin had the fastest 10K split for GrandMasters resulting in her winning a Garmin. I’m not sure, but I think since she already has one, so you might contact her if you are in the market…And once again I am convinced that I do not like swimming in Midwest waters. Icky murky brown and green–yuck!
