Trailblazer and Vasque

On Friday night, Debbie did an outreach presentation at Trailblazer in New Haven, Connecticut. She used a Powerpoint presentation to share her love of trail running and ultrarunning. No doubt, it was inspirational for the listeners. She covered a broad range of topics, including: her favorite races, training, nutrition, running and pregnancy, and trail shoe technology. She represents Vasque as part of the Vasque US Trail Running Team.

The photos that she shared with the group brought back some fun memories from her 11 year racing career. We have had a blast at some big-time ultras like Ultra Trail du Mont Blanc, Javelina Jundred, White River 50, Headlands 50K, Mountain Masochist, Pittsfield Peaks, and of course, the Vermont 50 Mile Ride & Run. Now that her child-bearing years are in the rearview mirror, her focus is on getting in the best shape of her life. There are many great runs to come. She is laying out a multi-year plan that will bring us to even more events in the coming years. I’m going to start practicing my crew techniques. I’m going to start a weight lifting regimen in advance of having to carry all of her gear!

Trailblazer was a nice store with some good brands. It was cool to see that like our business, Thread Rolling Inc., they are a member of 1% for the Planet.

He is learning the lines. He taught me a new saying after a particularly rugged, technical, and bouncy section. He said, "That was a serious chamois adjuster." #mountainbike #mountainbiking #teamhorstsports #teamhorstjuniorsquad
