News and Notes from Donna

News you can Use!

Back by Popular Demand!
Red Hen was most popular winter series run in years one month ago.
Can we get an encore Feb 18?

The Saturday CVR Winter Long Run for Feb 18 will be hosted by Bob Emmons. Meet at the Red Hen in Middlesex, Saturday at 9:30 a.m. ready to run. Contact Bob Emmons for more information and to let him know you are on your way: And Red Hen plows their parking lots! (you could ask Jeff why I am noting this).

Reminder: Sign up for Mount Washington Road Race lottery is now open! Join Mike Gillis, Dot Helling and myself in our annual trek up the mountain. It’s Only One Hill! Be sure to put CVR as your club if you sign up. Rumors that Jeff and Andy are putting in their names. Who else? Will we see the return of famous (in the MWRR world) CVR runners Keith Woodward or Eric Morse? Any chance they would put CVR as their club?

Does anybody in CVR have a running streak they are proud of? Here’s one Streak That Just Ended to ponder. If you have had an interesting experience with a running streak, it could make an interesting article for Bob Howe in the next newsletter. I will let you know the deadline for the March news coming soon!

In case there are potential world traveling marathoners out there… The Shanghai Marathon has a package they have been promoting to me. Let me know if you want details. Of course there are marathons all around the world, but this was the first one that offered to set up a presentation for our club. I respectfully said that wouldn’t be necessary.
