CVR Reunion at Gasparilla Half Marathon last weekend

Happy CVR Birthdays!
Happy Birthday this week to: Bonnie Burkholder, Joe Loga, Ariane Kissam, Kari Bradley, Julia Shedd, Rosa DeAngelis, Willem Colvin, Haley Tamburo, Eric Morse!

(This is a new feature I thought would be fun. If you don’t want to be listed, let me know. If I miss you, sorry, I’m getting it from the membership list which doesn’t have everyone’s birthday on it.)

The Saturday CVR Winter Long Run for March 4 will be hosted by John Valentine in Roxbury. Meet at John and Jane’s house at 440 Northfield St, Saturday at 9:30 a.m. ready to run. Contact John for directions, more information and to let him know you’ll be coming. Brrr, I hear winter is coming back just for the Roxbury run. At least it won’t be muddy like last year.

Bob Howe has announced the deadline for the March newsletter–Get it to Bob, by March 12. He invites you to let him know any favorite races you’d like to get more CVR members going to (like my plugs for Mount Washington….lottery closes at midnight!) Any other fun articles and pictures are always welcome–did you go on a winter racecation? Tell us about it!

Time to start thinking about the CVR Annual Meeting… March 26th at Four Corners School House in East Montpelier. Have you ever heard of Chi Running? I often recommend some of the Chi Running concepts for injury prevention and I’ve lined up CVR member and Chi Running instructor Sarah Richardson to do an introductory clinic prior to the meeting. Tentatively, the clinic will be at 3 pm, pot luck at 5 pm and meeting starting at 5:30 pm. Stay tuned!
