Kara and Adam, my new coaches

running retreat

In keeping with this week’s theme of taking care of myself, and to celebrate my return to running, I just registered for something that is super exciting.  A Women’s Running Retreat with Kara Goucher as head coach!

My non-running followers will probably read this and think, “you just paid almost $800 to go to the middle of Wisconsin and run for an entire weekend???”

My running followers will understand how exciting and fun this will be!  A weekend long retreat, with 60 women, filled with seminars and group runs, coached by Kara Goucher, Adam Goucher (my BFF), Katie McGee, Janis Klecker and Barney Klecker (admittedly, I didn’t know who the later three were, but their credentials look impressive).   Dinners and fireside chats with the coaches and other runners too.  (I wonder if they allow wine? Or if I’ll get kicked out of camp if I smuggle in a bottle of cab?).  The date of the weekend worked out perfectly for me. And the location, in northern Wisconsin, should be an easy drive from the Twin Cities.

I’m sure after a weekend with Kara, I’ll be super speedy and have a six pack like she does.


Since I won’t be ready in the fall to run a marathon yet, this will be the next best thing!  Wheee!

  1. Caan’t speak to the running part,but you will love Minnesuing Acres , I go there every May for a board retreat.Everything about the place is first class and very relaxing. Better find out about the wine availability though,its a long walk (run) to the liquor store.

    The last two coaches,”The Kleckers” are not only exceptionally talented runners themselves but they are also widely known for their wickedly fast kids who run for Hopkins High School. Have a great time, your weekend sounds wonderful!!
