Bull Mares has run over 30 marathons, including over 15 Vermont City Marathons.
Bill Mares is the former president of the Vermont Beekeepers Association, and vice-president of the Eastern Apicultural Society. He recently retired from teaching history at Champlain Valley Union High School in Vermont. As a writer and photographer, he has done work for the Christian Science Monitor and The Economist, and worked at newspapers in Illinois, Michigan, New Hampshire and Vermont. Bill has authored a number of books, including Fishing with the Presidents and Bees Besieged.
With running partner Rick Peyser, Bill co-authored Brewing Change, Behind the Bean at Green Mountain Coffee Roasters — the inspiring result of those frequent runs and steady conversations. Brewing Change is part travelogue, part social commentary, and part motivating business model for building corporate social responsibility. Brewing Change chronicles Peyser’s 24-year career with an insider’s view of GMCR, one of the largest specialty coffee companies and purchasers of Fair Trade coffee in the world. One hundred percent of the authors’ earnings and 10 percent of Wind Ridge Publishing’s net profits from the sale of Brewing Change benefit Food 4 Farmers.
Bill served in the Vermont House of Representatives from 1985 to 1991. He holds an A.B. from Harvard College and an M.A. from The Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University.
