Chi Running winter running clothing suggestions

Posted by Danny Dreyer on Sat Jan 2nd, 2010, 10 comments

I got really spoiled living in California. I was in the Bay Area and I think I saw it snow maybe twice in the nine years I was there. Winter running there is no problem at all if you didn’t mind getting rained on every now and then. But now that I’m living in Asheville, [...]

I’m always amazed and grateful at the tools that ChiRunning has given me to make my running a more pleasant experience. And I’m even happier when I can share them with a running partner, and see the beneficial effects almost immediately, while we are running. I was running the other day with some friends who [...]

Have Fun Exploring While Running

Posted by Hazel Wood Master Instructor on Mon Dec 21st, 2009, 1 comments

It is so easy to get caught up in being focused on everything we have to do and things we want to accomplish that sometimes we don’t allow ourselves the time, or space in our brain to just have fun. Even with our running and walking programs. While I am sure that most people reading [...]

The power of positive thinking when running

Life has been pretty stressful over the last week or so.  Of course, the time of year doesn’t help either.  A bit of fire fighting needed to be done and too much time and energy has been spent on it but sometimes you must protect the reputations of others and stand up for what you [...]

Running With A Team

Posted by Ryan Miller on Thu Dec 17th, 2009, 0 comments

One of my favorite things about running has always been running with a team. I enjoy the quiet solitude of running alone as well, but there is something special about running on a team. Many of my deepest friendships have been formed with high school and college teammates. I have fond memories of ‘the good [...]

Running Form: the Key to Uphill running (part two)

Posted by Keith McConnell on Thu Dec 17th, 2009, 0 comments

Continuing  my Uphill running effort at Mt. Ashland, my ChiWalking identity soon became the major player in its collaboration with ChiRunning. It seemed a rational strategy to conserve energy for the many miles ahead by ChiWalking at a fast pace rather than ChiRunning at a slow pace. That seemed to be the way I could [...]

Running Motion for a Midfoot Strike

Posted by David Stretanski on Mon Dec 14th, 2009, 8 comments

In ChiRunning, the approach is to land midfoot (full-foot) under your column and create a wheel slightly behind your column with your heels/feet. Visually, this running motion is similar to the Road Runner cartoon. To create this wheel, the focus is to allow the knee to bend and to not consciously lift the knee. Lifting [...]
