News and Notes from Donna

Happy New Year!


Tim Noonan can’t hold off Theresa
but he leads his new AG for the 2017 CVR/ORS Series

Bob Howe has announced that the deadline for the next CVR newsletter is January 15. Send him your interesting 2016 stories or motivational articles for 2017. As a special addition, he would like to include photos of your favorite running medal. A random drawing from the medal photo submissions will be held for a special prize (details to be announced). Please email your articles and photos to Bob!

This week’s CVR Winter Long Run will be hosted by yours truly (that would be me) in Adamant. Meet at 1171 Haggett Rd at 9:30 a.m. for distances to be determined by participants. Dress warmly; it is winter. And as for everything held in Adamant, expect food and beverages after the run. Contact for more info and to let me know if you are coming. RSVP not required, but we are more likely to wait for you if we know you are on your way.

Deadline for reservations for the Annual CVR Volunteer Appreciation Dinner and CVR/ORS Series Awards on January 26, 2017 approaches. Contact John Martin by Jan 18 to RSVP. Remember, volunteers are free, guests and member/non volunteers are $25.
And have you seen this, from the NY Times? Ed Whitlock ran a sub 3-hour marathon at age 73, and sub 4-hour at age 85.
Is that inspirational or just freaky?

Happy 2017!
