Passion, serious amounts of energy, and their love for community, that’s what drew these two moms together to build Stridemob Events. Sarah Pirlot and Jeanie Brevoort met while serving on the board of directors for a local triathlon club. After spending a few years planning, organizing, putting on events, and encouraging members of the triathlon club, an opportunity to produce a trail running race was presented to them. “With a few bottles of wine and the excitement of the opportunity, StrideMob was born!”, says Pirlot.
Although Marty ran middle school and high school track and was always committed to the volleyball and basketball teams, she felt she had to struggle just to fit in. “I never received the coaching I so desperately needed, so I was left in the dust of my teammates. I didn’t have a strong passionate coach that was willing to help me fine tune any of my skills. So, I wasn’t ever treated as part of the team, but I refused to quit”, explains Marty. “My parents taught me to always finish what you start, So I never gave up”.
