Vasque US Trail Running Team

Debbie had a fabulous year running the trails in 2008. She met all of her goals, culminating with her first completed 100 miler in November. It was a great capstone to the season. This year is a year of transition as we expand our family, but she is still running. Of course, she doesn’t have to run long to remain active in the trail and ultra communities. She is Race Director of the upcoming Soapstone Mountain Trail Races and President of the Shenipsit Striders. She even managed 4th at Bimbler’s Bash last weekend. It was a short one, but that is OK. She plans to run throughout the spring and summer. Northern Nipmuck, at 16 miles, will be a test this Saturday.

She is especially excited about this year because she is one of five members of the inaugural Vasque US Trail Running Team. She joins Krissy Moehl (Bend, Oregon), Duncan Callahan (Gunnison Colorado), Shiloh Mielke (Asheville, North Carolina) , and Bryan Dayton (Boulder, Colorado). Vasque is a long time supplier of boots and footwear for mountaineering, hiking, and backpacking. They are making a stronger push into trail running. Deb likes the shoes and is fired up about helping promote Vasque through her running escapades. I’m anxious to try a pair myself.
