News and Notes


CVR birthdays this week:

Happy Birthday to: Sal Acosta – new age group 50’s!, William Acosta, Matthew Caldwell, Frederick Rountree, Emily LeVan

Hi CVR Members,

We were all wondering when real winter weather was going to arrive, I think this is the week. As I write this newsletter the temperature tonight has already dropped to -14 degrees! It’s not over yet as it will definitely continue through the weekend and our next Winter Group Run. That’s a great place to start the news.

Winter Group Runs
In the coldest weekend so far, we had a fairly nice turn out for the winter group run in Berlin. Poor Chris Andresen was the only one who showed up and ran the 7:00 am run while 13 of us showed up at 9:30 am. Not sure if the temperatures were any different. This Saturday is going to be another frozen Saturday morning of running. Heather has informed me it will be un-hosted and in Montpelier. Those on the Winter Group Run list will get the normal email tomorrow with the details. If you’re not on the list and want to be added please reply to this email.

Membership
Since the beginning of the year (only 11 days) our membership has grown by 13 to 345 members. Welcome new members! Follow us on Facebook, join our Facebook Central Vermont Runners Community page and join our events! Winter running is in full swing.
