Run SMART Retreat Featured In Well And Good NYC

Our media coverage page is growing fast as of late. This morning Well and Good NYC wrote about the Run SMART Retreat in their Great Escapes section. Check it out…July 1st is the deadline to sign-up and we’ve already capped it and opened up a few more spots so move fast if you’re thinking about joining us this year!

Runners get their own retreat

Attendees range from absolute beginners to marathoners, all of whom choose their own pace and distance. Afternoons feature guest speakers (like famed running coach Jack Daniels and Olympian Magdalena Lewy Boulet) and clinics on issues like gait analysis. And they take the retreat aspect seriously. Ample time is left for sightseeing and relaxation in the mountains, and group dinners are a nightly social affair.

Jack’s top two reasons as to why we’ve had so much success with our clients:

  1. We’re careful about not overtraining clients
  2. We’re able to identify proper training paces for runners of all levels through his patented vdot formulas

If you haven’t checked out Thirsty Thursdays head over to to watch all the episodes. They’ve done an amazing job with this series.

I Run Under The Influence Of Jack Daniels

By Brian Rosetti

I’m currently following a 5k Training Plan, courtesy of Coach Jack Daniels, the legend himself. That’s right! I’m not only the president, I’m a client too. Now, anyone can run under the influence of Jack unlike ever before. Check out our brand new Training Plans for 5k, 10k, half marathon and marathon distances.

Jack literally writes your schedule and then we personalize it to match your running profile so every pace of every workout is exactly what it should be to reach your goals. Having this type of personalization is hard to find without hiring a private coach, not to mention the genius behind the schedule will never be matched.

Stepping Into Minimalist Shoes Responsibly

With the new trend towards minimalist footwear, it’s important runners have access to information not only about the benefits of minimalism but more importantly how to incorporate it safely into their running routine.

Saucony has taken this message to heart with their recent Step Into Minimalism events in Boston and NYC. Run SMART was fortunate enough to be apart of this worthy campaign by offering gait analysis and coaching tips on how to safely transition into minimalist shoes.

Start Running, Stop Smoking

The Run SMART Project has partnered with the Scranton Running Co and their latest initiative, The Oxygen Project. The goal of the project is to help participants quit smoking through a “running-centric fitness routine, which harnesses the power of group therapy.”

Run SMART is excited to be involved in such an innovative approach to a serious problem that affects everyone. It is estimated that over 50,000 people die each year due to secondhand smoke inhalation. The Project aims to make a regular fitness routine the primary method to combat addiction, unlike most smoking cessation programs. Run SMART will provide 15-weeks of customized training for each participant.

Yoga For Spinal Fusion Workshop

Join Miriam Rosetti, Sunday April 10th in New York City, for the first workshop ever on Yoga for Spinal Fusions!

It is estimated that somewhere between 200,000 – 300,000 spinal fusions are performed annually in the US. Surgeries to correct the spinal asymmetry and instability caused by scoliosis are as varied as each individual’s scoliosis. However, there are some basic principles that can be applied to make a yoga practice not only accessible, but essential to the health of the spine and overall well-being of the individual.

Run The Berlin Marathon With Team for Kids

The Berlin Marathon has sold out almost seven months in advance but you can still get guaranteed entry by raising money for New York Road Runner’s Team for Kids. And on top of supporting a great cause and participating in one of the greatest marathons in the world, you’ll receive a personalized 18-week training plan and coaching support from The Run SMART Project.

Jack Daniels Visits Runner’s World

This past Monday Jack visited with the editors at Runner’s World and then gave a talk to the Lehigh Valley Running Community. I was fortunate enough to tag along for the day. Runner’s World editor at large, Amby Burfoot, made a great attempt to try and summarize some of the key takeaways after spending the day with Jack.
