Final Stretch of Irene-Damaged LT Reopened
The U.S. Forest Service has reopened the final three miles of the Long Trail/Appalachian Trail that were closed due to damage from Tropical Storm Irene. The section, located in Shrewsbury, was closed for a month, after Sargent and Gould brooks washed away most of the trail.
As of press time, many side trails remained closed. Please check with the Forest Service at www.fs.usda.gov for the latest information.
Physical Therapists Open Running Store
The practitioners at Green Mountain Rehabilitation & Sports Medicine have opened a running store, catering to injury prevention and rehab needs for runners, walkers, and other athletes. The store, Green Mountain Running Medicine Shop, is located at 90 Main Street in Burlington, and offers biomechanically correct footwear, accessories, and equipment. The three physical therapists can work with patients and non-patients alike to make sure they are outfitted in running shoes that work with your feet and running needs. The shop is open Wednesday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Monday and Tuesday by appointment; 861-3242.
The new site aims “to provide ski enthusiasts with improved navigation, expanded product information, new videos, an updated dealer locator and more,” the company said in a news release, hoping to make the site a “one-stop resource for anyone looking for information—and inspiration— related to Alpine and Nordic skiing. An updated dealer located will make it easier for consumers to find a local shop to check out and purchase Fischer gear.
