Confession. We are beyond excited about our first-ever national retreat, happening this November 5-8 in sunny Scottsdale, Arizona. 150 of you will be joining us from literally every corner of the country. We have gone through the flow of the event from the beginning to end, and end to beginning. We’ve asked ourselves, ‘How would WE want to experience something like this?’ We’re combining classic elegance with sweat and grit. We’re dancing and laughing into the night, and we’re running and hiking before the sun rises. We’ve picked foods that are fun and healthy, and we’ve created our signature cocktails for ladies to sip and enjoy.
And we want to share as much of the fun with you throughout the weekend.
Follow along as we’re inspired by TODAY Show anchor Erica Hill’s personal running journey and are taken through ‘a day in the life’ of Women’s Running Magazine editor Nicki Miller. Hang with us as we learn running form and treadmill tips from expert David Siik and dive deep into the art of intentional nourishment with nutrition coach Theresa D’Ambrose. Watch as we own our stories with speaker Celia Slater and learn how to ‘fight-fall-rise’ with storyteller Denise Logan. We’ll talk goals, running strong, living big and giving ourselves permission to chase dreams AND finish lines.
We’ll create the space for women to be brave with their stories and to connect with other women who get them, fully.
A crown jewel moment during the weekend will be the debut of our thirteenth flower, carrying with it a message that has been within us for the past two years and is finally ready for the world to see.
We will sweat, run, hike, laugh, cry, dance, sip, savor and just be. You won’t have to be in the room to be feel the love, energy and connection we’ll be sending you.
If you want to be part of the fun, check out #rockretreatrun on Instagram, Twitter and follow our Facebook page for photos, videos and takeaways. We know many of you wanted to be with us, but life got in the way. We get it. Rest assured, we are already looking at dates and possible locations for Rock Retreat Run in 2016. We hope you’ll join us then, but for now, we’ll share all of the fun with you.
