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.

A funky bolt that we pulled from stock @horsteng to ship to the same government customer 17 years later. Glad they still use them. I think we thread ground these. Not sure, but it looks like it and I could check. #precisionmachining #manufacturing #aerospace #instamachinist #cnc #cncmachining #machining #madeinconnecticut #madeinnewengland #madeinusa #horstengineering @trailrunningmom coming down the West Ridge Trail in the #greenmountains of #vermont #trailrunning @ultraspire #ultraspire Fantastic run/hike on the Glastenbury/West Ridge Loop in the #greenmountains of #vermont 21.2 miles/5h27m and lots of fun. We pushed it, but not too hard. Good 1.5 day date/training camp with @trailrunningmom #trailrunning #hiking #longtrail #appalachiantrail @ultraspire #ultraspire #shenipsitstriders @trailrunningmom didn't slow down on this steep descent when this little guy puffed up and flexed his quills at us. #porcupine #berkshires #cycling Fun evening ride in the #berkshires with @trailrunningmom We found some BIG hills (up AND down) on road AND dirt. I need to come back and hammer this loop. #zoargap #teamhorstsports #sevencycles #deerfieldriver #dunbarbrook #pursuitstrong #cycling #precisionmachining some nice couplings from heat treated blanks. The profile, hex, threads, inside diameter, and conical seats are made complete on one of our #Eurotech multi-axis lathes @horsteng When these are done, there headed to Japan. #manufacturing #machining #instamachinist #cnc #cncmachining #aerospace #madeinconnecticut #madeinnewengland #madeinusa #horstengineering Last night, I toured @getbackinc in Oakville. It's my kind of shop, complete with an anvil like the one in my office. I told the proprietor that @horsteng shamefully threw out tons of vintage industrial equipment and furniture over the last 70 years. It wasn't always vintage when we chucked it! Now people pay big $ to incorporate this stuff on to high end furniture of there own, but I bet those customers don't have 7,000 sf of wood block factory floor. That's vintage! #horstengineering I had a nice post work ride. First I rode up and around Marblehead Neck, and then I explored a windy #Nahant until the sun got low in the sky. I finally learned what a #tombolo is. #sevencycles #teamhorstsports #bicycle First #mountainbike race of the year was a leg crusher. All four of us raced the #root66 race series #fattireclassic at #windingtrails This course is "full gas" the whole time. We were joined by several #teamhorstsports mates. #cycling
