TIART: Running Camp!

Thursday = TIART and this weeks question, brought to you by Lacey is:

Imagine you are attending a week-long running camp. Where would it be? What would you do? Would there be classes? Bootcamps? Socials? I want to know all about the kinds of things that make up your ideal running-related week. No work, no obligations outside of camp,... for one week you can have it exactly your way! Tell me all about it!

Well thanks for asking because HONESTLY I would love to go to a running camp! I have been to basketball and soccer camp but never running camp!

It doesn't really matter where it is, just the fact that I can eat, sleep and live running! I read last summer about a camp that Laura went to in the Adirondacks (in NY) and it sounded so much fun. It was scheduled but also flexible with runs at all different times of the day and classes on training, nutrition, etc! Here is one of her posts about it!

So basically I guess I am saying I want to go to that camp....!! Maybe next year.


The doctor's appointment went very well today - Thanks for all your thoughtful comments! I have to continue with my exercises but pretty much I am good to go! Slow increase of mileage is in order but it looks like my hip is healed!! The doctor actually said that my right leg might be stronger than my left now! The doctor also said to watch the tendon pain in my quad/upper knee area (it seems to be getting better with each run) but if it doesn't I have to head back to the PT to work on it!

It's almost FRIDAY!!!

hey thanks for pointing us toward someone who has actually been to running camp!!!! lol :)

would you like to coach at a bball or running camp given the chance/?? having been a college athlete in both you could totally jump on that... but you work full time year round now, right? maybe if you have a mid-life crisis :)

HIP-HIP-HOORAY!!!!! (LOLLLL) re: the hip. okay i am cheesing myself out. but YES@!!!!! healed!!!!

YIPPEE!! Glad to hear you got the all clear.

You know I never really liked Basketball camps...I was more of a game type of person. I am guessing I would be the same with running. Like the races not the camps..

I've actually been tossing around the idea of putting together a sort of "running camp" for the blog buddies next summer. I'm just thinking about renting a house in the mountains of North Carolina or Tennessee and maybe doing 2 runs a day with some good cooking and good company.

The price of the house split several ways wouldn't be too bad.
