2017 Spirit of the Club Winner is….Greg Wight!

I hope everyone had a good time at the Annual Volunteer and Awards dinner. Not perfect logistics for the awards, but in the end, I think everyone got plenty of food. Great to see so many runners this time of year.

I’m in Madeira Beach FL and ran into Flip Flop Guy running on the beach. The article is from 2007, so he is now 72 and not one thing appears to have changed since then. I thought I would drop him as he started to run, but since I was not gaining, we chatted for a mile or so until I had to turn around. He kept going….

This week’s CVR Winter Long Run will be hosted by Nina Aitken. Meet at the Green Mountain Coffee Cafe in Waterbury, ready to run at 9:30 a.m. Saturday. Contact Nina, for questions and last minute notices. My understanding is that it should be a relatively flat run for a contrast from last week.

Montpelier trail running is now famous thanks to an article by frequent visitor and CVR race participant Peter Maksimow.
