Saturday April Fools Long Run

Happy CVR Birthdays!

Happy Birthday this week to: Daniel Keeney, Jennifer Skinder, Jackie Jancaitis, Kaitlin O’Shea, Lacey Boleyn, Jane Miller-Arsenault, Patty Foltz, Bill Holland, Mary Stridsberg, Phoebe Stone, Analina Aitken, Barb Patterson, Jon Williamson, Loralyn Leblanc

The April 8 CVR Winter Long Run will be hosted by Nina Aitken, Saturday at 9:30 a.m. at the Red Hen in Middlesex. A paved route is planned due to potential mud, but a dirt option could prevail. Contact Nina, for info, special requests, or to let her know you are coming.
There are just 3 “Winter” Long Runs left in the season. Good luck to those who have chosen Unplugged Half this Saturday.

As a follow-up from last week’s notes about the GMAA article on Sue and John Hackney…Jimmy on the spot Ace Reporter, Jim Flint, ran into them returning from the Cherry Blossom 10 Miler in DC. With over 17,000 people in the race, John was first 70+ beating Bill Rodgers (and fellow Vermonter Zeke Zucker) and Sue finished 2nd F 60-64. Big fish in a big pond!.

And our first race of the season The 21st Annual CVR Mutt Strutt is just 3.5 weeks away! Spread the word to make it a big success. If you’d like to volunteer, contact Cindy Gardner-Morse or Matt Germaine.

Attention high school seniors! Did you know GMAA gives scholarships to Northern VT runners? Check it out and apply by April 21
