2017 Running with the Devils

Tristan vs Dad


Tristan ran his first 5k at age 6 in 2011.  We were worried about him running at that age and we made sure he was surrounded by friends to help support him (and make sure he didn’t get trampled at the start).  We have run the 5k in our town every year since then and and Tristan has beat me the last few times.  I was able to sneak by him at last year's Clara Maass race and he has demanded a rematch.  This year my daughter Macy is also running.  Come and join us!  Its a great event and a great wat to support Clara Maass Medical Center. 


If you are too lazy to get off the couch, we are happy to accept donations on behalf of the hospital.


Clara Maass, part of the RWJ Barnabas Healthy System, is located in Belleville is a community medical center that offers patients expert care in a technology-rich environment, close to home. Nicknamed "Hospital in The Park" because of its close proximity to lovely Branch Brook Park, site of the famous cherry blossom festivals, Clara Maass Medical Center is a facility serving primarily residents of Essex, Hudson, and Bergen Counties. Founded in 1868 as the Newark German Hospital, today Clara Maass is staffed by more than 700 physicians and 2,100 employees delivering care to more than 16,000 Inpatients, more than 80,000 Emergency Department visits and approximately 10,000 surgeries each year. As the first hospital in the United States to bear the name of a nurse as its corporate identity, Clara Maass Medical Center carries on a rich tradition of health care.
