CVR News and Notes from Donna

Happy New Year!

CVR Birthdays this Week!

Happy Birthday to: Reed Bingham, Hana Nazerali-Ruddy, William Acosta, Matthew Caldwell (New AG!), & Newton Baker!

Newsletter deadline! Get Bob Howe your articles and photos for the January Newsletter by Jan 15.

John Martin has received lots of RSVP’s for the Annual Volunteer Dinner and Awards, but if you have not done it yet, RSVP now. John’s email is: Verify you are on THE LIST to be sure you get in free. Otherwise, you’ll need to get $26 to John Martin by Jan 23 for your registration and/or for any guests who are not on the list.

The first Winter Long Run of 2018 (finally! right?) will be hosted by Nina Aitken from the Green Mountain Coffee Roasters Cafe in Waterbury. It may be crazy road conditions, so if you are planning on coming, it would be a good idea to let Nina know in case there are changes to the plan. To reiterate since some people have gotten it a little wrong a couple of times: Be ready to run Saturday morning at 9:30 a.m.

Lost and Found: RD Ann Bushey found a pair of Hokas at the NYE 5K. Let her know if you lost a pair.

And just for fun. Here’s how a woman trains for an Olympic qualifying marathon at age 50. I like the part where she eats junk food and doesn’t get up at the crack of dawn. Not so sure about never stretching and running 100 mile weeks though.

Ongoing events

CVR Fun Run every Tuesday, May to October, at 5:30 pm. See you next year!

CVR Speed Workout Wednesdays at 6 pm. Meet near the MHS track on the bike path warmed up by 6. Contact Steve Hill if you have questions and want to be added to his email list. These continue through the winter–bring headlamps!
