The race is the cornerstone of the Retreat, so we’re planning around that Sunday morning event. Check out the complete schedule of our 2019 Eau Claire Retreat in a nifty PDF; we’ll have the 2023 schedule finalized about six weeks prior to the Retreat. In the meantime, here’s a rundown:
We’ll kick things off Friday afternoon with an educational session, then an evening welcome party, complete with a get-acquainted icebreaker (Dim always organizes great ones!). We’ll record a podcast this evening, as well. On Friday afternoon and on Saturday morning, there are optional 1:1 sessions attendees can sign up for to talk privately with Train Like a Mother Club coaches, Dimity, and Sarah.
Saturday morning will start with a shake-out run and a scrumptious breakfast buffet (the first of several for the weekend), followed by educational sessions with experts who get the mother running lifestyle and concerns. Saturday afternoon will feature a relaxing yoga session. Packet pickup and exploring downtown (if you want) will round out the day before we enjoy a pre-race dinner together.
Sunday morning is race day, followed by lunch in town and a group yoga session. There will be lots of free time in the afternoon to explore town, go shopping, or whatever else you choose to do! As we have done at other Retreats, we hope to have licensed massage therapists provide massages the afternoon after the race. (For an extra cost.) Every night there will be delicious, friendship-forming dinners, and Monday morning we’ll wrap up our weekend with a celebratory group brunch. Sunday night, as has become an Another Mother Runner Retreat tradition, we’ll do karaoke after dinner. #DoNotKnockItUntilYouTryIt
We’re still working out programming and guests, but there will be plenty of members of Team AMR and the Train Like a Mother Club.
Whether you cover a mile in 14 minutes or half that time, your running—and your life—will benefit greatly by the experts we assemble for the weekend.
