High Altitude Running Clinic
Marty Kibiloski and Michael Sandrock
September 4–5, 2017
This program has been cancelled.
A continuation of the popular Labor Day “Running with the Mind of Meditation” retreat, this clinic is aimed at helping those who want to gain additional insight into their training and compete in races ranging from the 5K to Ultra marathons. Participants will receive personalized instruction on running form, comprehensive training schedules and race strategies to match their specific goals. Every participant will work away with a personalized training plan for the next 12 months, as well as select chapters from Sandrock’s best selling “Running with the Legends,” named by Competitor magazine one of “The 25 Greatest Running Books of All-Time.”
Also join us for the Running With the Mind of Meditation Retreat from September 1 – 4:
This popular retreat is based on Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche’s best-selling book Running with the Mind of Meditation: Lessons for Training the Body and the Mind. Geared for runners, walkers, and other athletes, the book offers fresh insights into the activities of meditation and movement, and the ways our running experience can be dramatically enhanced by working with the principles of meditation.
Michael Sandrock is an award-winning journalist and author of Running with the Legends and Running Tough. He began running as a teenager in the forest preserves outside Chicago and went on to compete for the University of Colorado. After a stint making DNA as an organic chemist, he received his MBA and worked in a bank. It was a marathon in Yaounde, Cameroon, that spurred Sandrock to “follow his bliss,” a path that includes studying comparative mythology, running, yoga, and meditation, thanks to interviewing and writing about Sakyong Mipham.
