Get ready for a busy week next week with the Montpelier Mile and then the Stowe 8 Miler on Sunday, July 8. No Fun Run next week on the 3rd due to the Mile race. This week’s Fun Run made up for next week’s absence with a HUGE turnout of 36.

MONTPELIER MILE ON TUESDAY!
The one mile classic is back again, sponsored by Onion River Outdoors. Early registration through July 2 is available at $15 adult and $5 under 12. The race is at 6pm on July 3rd before the parade. Day of registration is $25.

VOLUNTEERS
Donna Smyers needs volunteers for the Mile. This is as short a volunteer gig as you can get. Please contact her if interested.

GUINEA PIGS WANTED?
Dr. Patrick Wilson of Old Dominion University in Virginia is conducting a research study on runners: specifically mood states, gastrointestinal symptoms and performance during endurance events. It mostly involves completing a questionnaire after races. If you are interested, here is a link to a podcast and other info: http://www.scienceofultra.com/podcasts/16

U-32 RELAY TEAM AT NATIONALS
The U32 4×800 team came in 18th at the New Balance Nationals, with a time of 8:05.93. Thanks to all who supported them in their trip last weekend to Greensboro, NC.

MT. WASHINGTON ROAD RACE
Four CVR members ran the infamous Mt. Washington Road Race this past weekend: Darrel Lasell, Rebecca Harvey, Donna Smyers and Mike Gillis). Our group was too small to qualify for the team competition so some of them ran for other teams. This was Rebecca’s and Darrel’s first trip up the One Hill but Donna and Mike are veterans, Donna with 20+ races and Mike with 30+. Donna once again won her age group, this year in a new one and was third overall on age graded basis. Results at http://www.coolrunning.com/results/18/nh/Jun16_Northe_set1.shtml.
