News and Notes

CVR Birthdays this week:

Happy Birthday to: Eric Morse, Ava Shanley, Colin Pope, Jonnie Dunne

Hi CVR Members,

Welcome to March, and wouldn’t you know it the freezing cold would carry over into March. It’s short lived though and Spring is around the corner!

Saturday Winter Long Run
 We had another successful winter long run this past weekend, hosted by Bob Murphy starting at the Northfield exit park and ride. There were 15 runners who ran two different time slots and there were two courses offered. The winter long run is a great place for new members to meet other CVR runners. There is no requirement to run the full planned course as you can set your own distance and more likely than not there will be others who will run the same distance as you. If you want to join please send a message to Donna to be added to the Winter Long Run mailing list…Donna. Next week the long run will be hosted by Bob Emmons in Waterbury.

Runners gathering for last Saturday’s winter long runs.
