We want you all to check your calendars now. Are you free the weekend of September 8-11? Want to head to the Smoky Mountains of Tennesse to run, eat, get massages, do yoga, and have fun with us? Sure you do! So let's all meet up at Blackberry Farm this fall. Oh, and if you running isn't your thing, craft brewing pioneer Sam Calagione of Dogfish Head will be hosting an event the same weekend. You can do the drinking, we'll do the running, and we'll see you at the spa!

This event is part of our Intensive series which feature three day, high energy retreats geared toward optimizing performance and achieving goals!
