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.

@mikewardian at the #Speedgoat50K #Quadbanger @snowbird Softening the legs up before his next race. Definitely not a vegan trophy...but a nice hard earned handmade memento. @trailrunningmom was 5th in the Vertical Mile, 20th in the #Speedgoat50K and 1st in the Quadbanger. Better than @letourdefrance (which also ended today) she was first female in the final general classification (only woman to do all three). She saved her two hard falls until the last "stage." This woman is all blood and guts and the toughest chick I know! Our kids will get a kick out of the #Speedgoat trophy. #pursuitstrong @pursuitathlete @ultraspire #ultraspire @julbousa #ultraspire #teamhorstsports #teamlivingston Just before the start of #speedgoat50k #Quadbanger @snowbird @mikewardian doing the only thing he does nearly as much as running! Posting on #instagram #twitter and #facebook #speedgoat50k It's been fun hanging with all these crazy runners. One more crazy race. Start of the inaugural #Speedgoat #Quadbanger. 20 or so brave souls started from top of 11,000 foot Hidden Peak. Four timed 2.5 +/- mile descents with total of 10 miles and 10,000 feet of elevation loss. They ride the Peruvian Chairlift up each time. Karl Meltzer and his team of volunteers and #Snowbird staff have been amazing hosts. @snowbird @ultraspire #ultraspire @julbousa #julbousa #teamhorstsports #speedgoat50k @trailrunningmom finished #Speedgoat 50K in 8:51:54. She said the course "ran" more like a 50 miler. Tough landscape for a Connecticut resident. I'm proud of her. #teamhorstsports #teamlivingston @trailrunningmom on the last big climb (again up to Hidden Peak) @snowbird #snowbird for the #Speedgoat 50K. She crested the 11,000 foot summit at 27 miles in 7h40m. What a crazy race. Mostly downhill from here. I hope she rips it. #teamhorstsports @ultraspire #ultraspire @julbousa #julbousa #trailrunning #ultrarunning @trailrunningmom bombing down Mt. Baldy at #Speedgoat 50K. @ultraspire #ultraspire @julbousa #julbousa #teamhorstsports #trailrunning #ultrarunning @trailrunningmom came through 21+/- miles at #Speedgoat 50K in 5:40 or so. 11,000 feet of up and 11,000 feet of down on this beast of a course. @snowbird #snowbird #teamhorstsports #trailrunning #ultrarunning @ultraspire #ultraspire @julbousa #julbousa
