EB46: Finding Accomplishment and Fun on the Trails – Creepy Crawlies & Critters – A Chat with Shae Vaughan


“…it all has to do with yourself…that feeling of accomplishment. Even when hurting you can push through it.” – Shae Vaughan

Between going to classes and cheerleading during her college years, Shae Vaughan of Texas was looking for something else to keep busy. She laced up some sneakers, headed out the door and very quickly loved to run.

A realization – “I can run these as well.”
