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.

Livingston Family firefighters. 🔥 👩‍🚒 🚒 When @trailrunningmom “smoked” the obstacle course AND added some push-ups for good measure, the Chief pulled out his business card and made a pitch for her to join the squad. I thought I was the competitive one, but she can turn anything into a competition! The kids had a blast too at family day.
From race directing to @thecubscouts directing. Proud day for our son, @trailrunningmom and the rest of #cubscouts Pack 157 Den 5 as they earned their Arrow of Light. Four of her boys are moving to @boyscoutsofamerica #scoutsbsa after five years of fun and learning.
Little D and I ran the @shenipsitstriders #soapstonemountaintrailrace Jerry Stage Sampler 6K with a bunch of other crazies! Tackling the infamous Sandpit with its 40% gradient and slick conditions was great fun. #trailrunning #shenipsitstriders #teamhorstsports 🏃‍♀️⛰
