Every summer the popular thing to do if you have children is to find camps to send them to. Camps exist for every taste – from cheer, to leadership, to knitting, to soccer to running.
But, what about a break for adults? Don’t adults deserve a little time away? My answer is an emphatic yes! My solution for the adult runners out there (parents or not) is to send yourself to running camp! Arizona Running Camp is the perfect long weekend (Thursday through Sunday) getaway. There is still time to register. But do it now! Registrations for this camp are capped to assure a personalized experience.
For those in the desert southwest it’s an escape from the heat. For those from the low-lands it’s time to train at 7000 feet!
For more novice runners it’s a time to focus on you and YOUR running: how to stay healthy, go longer, go faster or just get more variety and enjoyment from your running.
For more advanced runners it’s a time to regroup either from the past season of racing or for the upcoming Fall racing season. It’s time to assess what you are doing and if your approach needs updating, reinforcement or just an intense focus.
Arizona Running Camps differ from all other camps in that integrated into the entire camp are the mental game aspects (AKA sports psychology, mental toughness, mindset, motivation). You get a comprehensive assessment on your personal mental game and then you have the opportunity not only for in-depth discussions on the topics but 1:1 meetings with a nationally certified mental game coach (BTW that’s me). No other camp offers this. There is still time to register. But do it now!
Sometimes someone else summarizes points better than I ever could. I’m providing a link to one camper’s review of the recent running camp held in Flagstaff, AZ at Northern Arizona University. Here’s Rob’s take on camp lessons and applications. Enjoy reading about what you may have missed in past years but can look forward to this July!
