It is a safe place/no judgment zone. Can you be down with that?
Can I watch?
It's a little hard to take a person seriously charging gullible women $1,200 for "a weekend of friendship, running, wine, and empowerment." And a speech from Adam Goucher about "living the extraordinary life"! Let me save you the money: Spend a few years on a middling professional career and then live off your wife's marketability. Extraordinary!

She's done running isn't she?
Just gonna blog and tweet and cash in on her old fame.
The next Fleshman. Sad.
This. My wife loves working out and she goes to those "Barre" classes all the time. She comes home with $100 yoga tops that look like she would wear them out to dinner. She has like 3 drawers full of these things. She looks damn good in them, though :)

Honestly, this is a smart move by Kara. Running used to be dominated by cheap men (Boston Billy even got his favor shirt out of a trash can), but this latest running boom is completely dominated by upper middle class women with lots of disposible cash.
I don't see the point of spending a cool thousand bucks to have an empowering weekend of wine and running, but I guarantee they will sell out.
Same thing with Oiselle as a brand. I would never spend more than $20 on a pair of simple split shorts. But they can get women to spend hundreds of dollars on running "outfits." More power to them.
If someone really wants to experience a weekend of running and camaraderie, sign up for the Beach to Beacon 10K. You'll run a wonderful race and get to meet a truly accomplished woman, Joan Benoit Samuelson. Alas there will no lectures on freeloading from Scott Samuelson.
