Trail Running Course

North Texas Spring Running Camp with Lisa Smith-Batchen April 15-17

I recently became aware of this unique opportunity and wanted to pass it along…

A very special weekend running camp is coming to the TALON region (north Texas) on April 15-17.

Local Texas trail runner, Dave Carder, has organized a unique running experience that features an intimate opportunity to learn and hang with elite ultra endurance athlete, motivational coach, and inspiring world-changer – Lisa Smith-Batchen.

Check out Lisa’s bio. – From 100 milers, Badwater, Ironman, marathons,  Adventure Races, and almost everything in between, Lisa’s done it.

You may recall Lisa visited the region last year during the wickedly challenging and transformational Running Hope Through America adventure (Texas highlights) which has so far raised over $700,000 for orphans in our world.

Can one person (or a small group of people) make a hugely positive impact in our own home, neighborhood, community, state, country, world – damn right! Start somewhere – do something (note to self!).

Running Hope Through America - Texas Edition

Here are a few of the running related topics Lisa will share from her immense amount of experience:

  • race strategy
  • pacing
  • nutrition/hydration
  • running specific fitness and strength activities
  • plenty of open Q&A

More Weekend Pow!

Along with Lisa, there will be a small tribe of passionate and local knowledge sources sharing running related goodies to support your adventures in the coming months and for the rest of your life.

Gait Analysis and Natural Running Form Instruction

Accomplished ultra marathoner and founder of the Natural Running Store, Patton Gleason will lead an interactive session of running drills and technique tips that empower runners with a personal toolbox to support efficient running.

See Jack Run – Check out this video Patton created that highlights a runner’s form transformation after just a bit of guidance. Good stuff!
