Yup. This is my forever truth. My consistency is both frightening and a comfort. 🥴💓 ...

Mare here! I’m just the race director for Friend2Friend Trail Races. If you think I’m having a fun time you should see my runners. I’ve read the bios and blogs of everyone who follows F2F. Since I started on Instagram this past August I thought it time to introduce myself and give you a little background behind F2F’s incredible races. So, grab s carafe of wine/growler of beer and read on. I moved to Sussex County in 1995 and didn’t know a soul. I worked out at a local gym with a trainer. A group of women at the gym had one thing in common, a friend who was in the final stages of breast cancer. I spent the summer watching them reorganize their own lives on a daily basis so that someone was always available to stay with their friend and someone else was free to transport kids to sports etc. I could see the toll it was taking, and the strain in their faces. I didn’t know how I could help since I didn’t know their friend or her children. I thought about how many of us get hit with a devastating situation that leaves us feeling like we’re on an island. And while we know there are others out there suffering as well it’s often difficult to see beyond our own pain. I wanted to let that person know that, yes, they were surrounded by a bay of faces .. family and friends who were there for them. But that bay spills out into an ocean filled with faces of people they may never meet but in some way each of them is helping someone in your bay; making it easier for family and friends to help you. My first few races were 5K’s on the road. A long time gym/running friend of mine, Pete Terranova, got me off the streets and into our State Park. I had no idea what I was doing so I put my imaginary stethoscope around my neck and triaged the hell out of everything. Forgiveness vs Permission. My reason for doing this is purely selfish. I was once asked how much money an event planner made. I said I had no idea. She then asked how much I made. Nothing, I told her. She asked why do I do it. It’s very simple. I get to spend half a day, three times a year with some of THE BEST HEARTS ON THIS PLANET. In 19 years I’ve never looked back. And you’d be crazy not to join us:June/October/December ...
