Hey Runners,

Did CVR get some coverage in the Times Argus or what? Do you know our history?
Time Argus Active Vermont April 17

(unfortunately, you’ll need to pay for these links if you don’t have a subscription, but you can get the whole article and more pictures from the T-A headquarters or a neighbor if you missed it.)

The first OFFICIAL FUN RUN of 2016 is May 3. To celebrate, Mack Gardner-Morse is coordinating a CVR Green-Up day along the Fun Run course on May 5. Please put it on your calendar so I don’t feel so guilty about scheduling the Adamant 20 Miler on official Green Up Day. Stay tuned for details…
Speaking of Fun Runs, you’ve got one more chance to participate unofficially at 5:30 on Tuesday April 26. The report from 4/12 was that 4 males between the age of 55 and 57 ran together. Huge improvement in diversity on 4/19 with 2 55-59 females, 3 60-69 males and 2 70-79 males joining the 55 yo male. I guess the youth will join us when results are published in The World or maybe when we stop having a 15 mph NW wind every Tuesday evening (very good for negative splits though).

Hi Runners, 
Here we go….my first attempt at club wide news and notes!  Some of you may find this in a junk or promotions mailbox since it is coming from a new email. Move me to your primary email box or you’ll miss out on lots of great info over the next 51 weeks…We have now completed Unofficial Fun Run #4 — It is wintery weather I would have loved to see in February. This week, 4 hardy runners showed up with paces ranging from run/walk to long threshold pace. As my first presidential duty, I was hoping to presentChris Andresen with a citation as the only person who has attended every single Tuesday–Instead, he remains the only person to attend the 1st three. I hear next Tuesday is supposed to be warmer, so come on out and tell us about how you did or how cold it was at Unplugged or how much fun you had at the …

Hi, CV Runners,

Unofficial Fun Run #2 had a Yuuuuge turnout…. of acrobatic clowns…and Murphy. Not shown: Dot Martin, who couldn’t wait around for the antics, and ace photographer Greg.


Winter Long Run: Beth Daut will host this Saturday’s (3/26) winter long run at Red Hen Baking Company in Middlesex. Start time is 9:30 am. Beth will make a decision on dirt-road route vs pavement route later in the week based on conditions. E-mail Beth with questions at . And, as always, it is a good idea to give the host a heads-up that you plan to come. You’re less likely to get left behind that way!
