Happy CVR Birthdays!
Happy Birthday this week to: Rebecca McBroom, Dodge Bingham, Sigrid Olson, Andrew Tripp, Jake Robertson, Isaac Reilly, Marian Wolz, Michael Chernick, Ann Bushey, Matt Calhoun, Ben Feinbaum, Tess Kessler, & Ben Ellingson (and since this is earlier than last week, I’ll repeat the Happy Birthday to Pi Day babies: Dot Helling & Zachary Acosta)!

SPRING AHEAD??? OK, I was a bit too optimistic last week…. I am officially cancelling the unofficial start to the Fun Run season tomorrow. Not sure what will happen with the Wednesday Speed workout, but you might contact Steve Hill for an update if you aren’t already on his list and plan to start this week.
Maybe it will be spring next week when the calendar says so?

And in keeping with the snow theme… The March 18 CVR Winter Long Run will be hosted by Jeff Prescott, Saturday at 9:30 a.m. at Morse Farm. Meet upstairs in the store where there are bathrooms, but at least some of us should probably park below in the bigger lot. Bring skis for after the run–it could be great skiing (check here for conditions that day). Or just plan on staying for Sugar on Snow. Contact Jeff for info or to let him know you are coming.

Reminder and Time Confirmation: CVR Annual Meeting… March 26th at Four Corners School House in East Montpelier. Chi Running instructor Sarah Richardson will do an introductory Chi Running clinic prior to the meeting at 3:30. The pot luck will be at 5 and the business meeting starts at 5:30. See our website or watch for your March CVR Newsletter (coming soon!) with further details and directions.
