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?

Happy CVR Birthdays!

Happy Birthday this week to: David Birse, Andrew Nuquist, Alex Drew, Dick Mansfield, Ava Shanley, Amanda Ellingson, Jessica Hill, Bob Howe, George Phillips, Jen Castle, Dot Helling, Zachary Acosta!


SPRING AHEAD!! That means that the Tuesday night Fun Runs will begin very unofficially next Tuesday. ‘Unofficially” means no Darragh (i.e. no timing), but it is light enough to meet people at the Dept. of Labor Parking near the bike path at 5:30 every Tuesday for a run. It also means no more headlamps for the Wednesday Night speed workouts which never even took a break all winter. I hear rumors that a return to the track from the bike path could be imminent too.

(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 jvalentine@tds.net 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.

Back by Popular Demand!
Red Hen was most popular winter series run in years one month ago.
Can we get an encore Feb 18?

The Saturday CVR Winter Long Run for Feb 18 will be hosted by Bob Emmons. Meet at the Red Hen in Middlesex, Saturday at 9:30 a.m. ready to run. Contact Bob Emmons for more information and to let him know you are on your way: robertsemmons@comcast.net. And Red Hen plows their parking lots! (you could ask Jeff why I am noting this).

Reminder: Sign up for Mount Washington Road Race lottery is now open! Join Mike Gillis, Dot Helling and myself in our annual trek up the mountain. It’s Only One Hill! Be sure to put CVR as your club if you sign up. Rumors that Jeff and Andy are putting in their names. Who else? Will we see the return of famous (in the MWRR world) CVR runners Keith Woodward or Eric Morse? Any chance they would put CVR as their club?
