Barb Flint caught these guys while watching for Jim’s CVR shirt. She might have been confused by the red singlet.


Happy CVR Birthdays!

Happy Birthday this week to: Erin Preston, Eric Ryea, Mack Gardner-Morse, Amy Dickinson, Trish Hasper, Lisa Brucken, Cathy Eustis, Marie Comtois!


Guess what? I just did a count, and 48 of the families (that’s nearly 100 members) actually have expired memberships. Do you know who you are? Allie just sent out a reminder to those not renewed. If you didn’t get an email from her, you are probably good for the year. If you did get one, what are you waiting for???? If you want to check on your expiration date, here is a Membership List. The expired folks are on the first page, the rest of you folks who are on top of it are on the following pages. Of course, if you see an error, let us know…not me though, contact our membership director: Allie Nerenberg.
Quickest and easiest but of course with the small runreg fee is to sign up right now on-line. If you sign up for multiple years, you won’t have to remember next year. But if you prefer the old fashioned paper and check method, print this app and get it out.
Without renewing, you will continue to get these exciting, informative emails from me until about June 1 to give you lots of reminders about why you just couldn’t bear losing your membership, but you must renew by June 1 to be counted in the CVR/ORS Race Series for all the races including NYE 5K and Barre Town Spring Run.

Happy Birthday this week to: Gordon MacFarland, Coleman Bingham, Scott Griggs, Celeste Moulton, Lauren Singer, Laurie Scharf, Susan Dodge, Caleb Clark!



You can tell it is the change of seasons. Last week, Steve Hill reported that there were 10 attendees at the Wednesday speed workout compared to 3 the week before. But while our photographer Manny Sainz was busy at Unplugged Half Marathon, John Martin submitted this picture of the Saturday morning winter run.

Then with the aid of Manny’s phone, John took this follow-up of today’s unofficial Fun Run. Counting photographer John, that is double last week’s attendance. Hooray for running shorts weather!

I forgot to get a photo at the Annual Meeting, so enjoy this group selfy, courtesy of Manny Sainz, who is the only one with a 100% attendance record at the unofficial Fun Runs for 2017. Except for precipitation from 5:30-6:30….it also is 2 for 2.

CVR has some famous folks! Learn why Sue and John Hackney run so fast in the GMAA Newsletter feature article. And MHS student/CVR member Jeremy Hoyne-Grosvenor hit another PR with a 9:15.59 in the 2 mile run, placing 12th at Nationals in NY on March 12, this follows on his 3rd place, state record setting 4:18 mile at New Englands, just a couple weeks ago. Our Ace Reporter, Jim Flint, has written some great articles about Jeremy’s races and about other local runners for the Hardwick Gazette. Go to your local library or ask Jim for the stories.

DON’T FORGET!!!!
CVR Annual Meeting… March 26th at Four Corners School House in East Montpelier. That is this Sunday! 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. There are no kitchen facilities, but there is electricity and water. Unfortunately our agreement prohibits alcohol on site.
Besides the usual procedural stuff and deciding on the donation budget for the year, I would like to talk about ways to build up Tuesday Fun Runs, forming a training group for Leafpeepers registrants and maybe some sort of special CVR event like the Sub Ultimate Runner (read Norm’s account in the newsletter). If you have any fun ideas to add, let me know before Sunday! Would you like to be an officer? All positions get elected or appointed at this meeting and we always are happy to elect new volunteers. Let me know if I can help nominate you.
Directions: From Montpelier if low mud: Go up Main St. toward County Rd. Bear R at Center Rd. After the pavement ends, bear R onto Dodge Rd. In 1.5 miles, the Four Corners Schoolhouse is on your R at the triangle between Vincent Flats, Dodge and Snow Hill.
From south or east or if deep mud: Take Route 2 or 14 to their jct in East Montpelier. Just past Dudley’s Store, before 2 and 14 split at the traffic light, turn L up Quaker Hill Rd toward East Montpelier Elementary School. At the end of the pavement, go straight and the schoolhouse is immediately on your L in the triangle.
