Scenic Fitness Retreats in Carmel, California

Join me and Olympian and running coach Jeff Galloway in BEAUTIFUL Carmel-by-the-sea California in the fall of 2017 for scenic fitness retreats for runners and walkers.

If you follow me on social media you saw the gorgrous photos of our last trip in April. If you have not visited Carmel it is an adorable European style town set on the stunning California coast. The weekend includes runs, running advice and clinics from Jeff and nutrition seminars and food tastings led by me. There are also breathtaking excursions and hikes each day.
