Spots still remain for the 3rd Annual MRG Spring Getaway, set for May 4-6 at Timber Ridge Resort in Traverse City, Mich.

On today’s episode: I am joined by co-hosts Pam Carrigan, MRG event coordinator, and Meranda Lambert, who oversees events at Timber Ridge. We talk about the upcoming girls’ weekend, which includes everything from running and biking and hiking, to dining and shopping downtown, to relaxation and sunrise yoga — and lots more. We also share details (and our hard-to-contain excitement) about the weekend’s featured guest: 2018 Boston Marathon Champion Desiree Linden.

And, we’ve got some news to share…

 

Following her historic win on April 16 — Des is the first American woman to win the Boston Marathon since 1985 — we are offering a special Friday evening-only option. Here’s your chance to: go for a trail run with Des and enjoy drinks and heavy apps (and fantastic conversation) with Des as well as other like-minded women. We’ll also have time to sit around the campfire with Des, who trains in Rochester Hills, Mich. and lives in Charlevoix with her husband Ryan and their dog Boston, and take in a cool slack-line demo by Sam at Backcountry North. Giveaways also will be part of the evening.

Sign up for the Friday evening event here »

And if you decide you’d like to stay the night, Timber Ridge has several lodging options — you can also stay the entire weekend with us (simply sign up for the MRG Spring Getaway at the online store)

We’re capping the event at 40 women, so please sign up soon if you’re interested! We look forward to seeing you!
