Looks like John Martin’s back!
Hi Runners,
It was not a bad day for the first officially timed by Darragh Ellerson CVR Fun Run of 2016. Fashion choices ranged from shorts to capris to full tights on the bottoms and T-Shirts to vests to jackets and hats on top. It looks like I was the only one to choose mittens.
Do you run hot or cold? Or maybe hot and cold–especially if you are a 40-50 something female?

Deadlines for Stowe 8 Miler & Newsletter–Fun Runs–Final Winter Long Run–CVR Meeting and More!

Hey Runners,

We have a couple of deadlines on the horizon:

Email Shannon Salembier by Friday, May 6th if you would like to be in the drawing for the Stowe 8 Miler/5k free entries. Let her know which race you plan to enter. Shannon will pick the winners May 7. I’m rooting for the big drawing to be held at the Adamant 20 Miler awards so we can have our CVR auditors present.
In case you forgot, from the News and Notes of April 13:
The Stowe 8 Miler and 5K on July 10 is now part of the CVR/ORS series and has offered CVR 5 Free entries! As part of the new club competition, we need to get as many people as we can to sign up and we need to fill certain AG requirements to win monetary prizes for the club. Shannon Salembier is coordinating sign ups and free entries.

Do you recognize this man winning the Ocean State Marathon in 1980?
Classic CVR singlet!

Hey Runners,

Did CVR get some coverage in the Times Argus or what? Do you know our history?

Times Argus Note from Bob Murphy
(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).
