Registration closed this weekend, but I still have room for ONE more female and male... if you are still interested, email me ASAP! 

I am so, so, SO excited to host this, and I know it will be a ton of fun!!!





Schedule:
Friday

~5:30 PM or so, depending on when people arrive: easy run 30-40 minutes.
7:00 dinner
8:00 fun, games & strategizing over morning workout:
Hat game, board/card games with chances to "win" your way into or out of household tasks/chores. 

For workouts, I'll have suggestions and paces for everyone, and we will review individually and as a group.

  1. I SO wish I could go on this retreat with you. I know I would have a blast! However, I don't know that I could play Cards Against Humanity; I think I'm too naive and sheltered (are those the right words?) for that game!
