Running Pain and Yoga

Posted by Ryan Miller on Tue Nov 17th, 2009, 3 comments

Distance running can cause a tremendous amount of stress on the body. Yoga is now recognized as a way for runners to stretch tight muscles and help lessen running pain. Runners tend to gravitate towards power yoga and fast paced vinyasa flow. It’s wonderful to see runners now practicing yoga but this approach of stretching [...]

Running Form and Shoes

Posted by Ryan Miller on Tue Nov 17th, 2009, 6 comments

Before you start running it is likely you strap on a pair of running shoes that contain a number of features designed to enhance your performance and help keep you injury free. Every feature that is built into a running shoe already exists in your body in varying degrees. Practicing your ChiRunning form will help [...]

Running as a Metaphor for Life

Posted by David Stretanski on Tue Nov 17th, 2009, 0 comments

Many of us have heard the concept of “running is a metaphor [or mirror] for life”. There have been many ways to apply and learn from this concept. Just Google the phrase and you will see many posts on the subject. A few days ago a great quote came across my path: “Tension is who [...]

Is Chi Running truly effortless running?

Posted by Danny Dreyer on Tue Nov 17th, 2009, 16 comments

I’d like to clear up a bit of confusion about Chi Running that seems to crop up every now and then. Some runners have come to Chi Running workshops expecting their running to feel effortless by the end of the class. Then they write us afterwards and complain that they didn’t feel as though they got their [...]

Chi Running with friends and focuses

Posted by Elizabeth Frost on Fri Nov 13th, 2009, 5 comments

In the past week, I’ve gone running three times. Lately, that’s a lot for me! I’ve been making the time to get outdoors and enjoy the crisp fall mornings. Sunday I went running for 3.8 miles with the dog, surprising myself, and the dog as well. We had great weather that morning and going running [...]

Running Form and AHA Moments

Posted by Ryan Miller on Thu Nov 12th, 2009, 2 comments

How long does it take to get it? I get this question all the time, and it is a difficult one to answer. In my own experience, I have “gotten it” several different times over the course of practicing my running form. We call these “AHA moments.” Those moments where everything clicks and you say [...]

Running immediately after completing a marathon?

Posted by Richard C (Dick) Felton on Thu Nov 12th, 2009, 1 comments

I finished the Detroit Marathon on October 18th, 2009, running it in 3 hours 53 minutes – not particularly fast, however not bad for only having trained for 8 weeks completing only 500 KM of training miles. (Previous 3 months before starting 8 weeks of training for Detroit was long distance biking only = 5000KM – no running [...]

Running and Walking the USATF Trail Marathon Championship

Posted by Keith McConnell on Tue Nov 10th, 2009, 0 comments

“Do I really want to do this marathon?” I asked myself just 24 hrs before it was to begin. The idea of running up and down hills on a muddy trail in the forecasted  rainstorm and strong wind  just did not seem that appealing (and my marathon training had been spotty, at best). But, oh well, I [...]

Running My First Marathon

Posted by Michelle Muldoon on Tue Nov 10th, 2009, 2 comments

Since I took up running, I have always had the desire to run a marathon. Early on in my running career, it became clear that this may not be a possibility due to constant running injuries and the words of podiatrists and physiotherapists ringing in my ears. However, like any running junkie, I wasn’t going [...]

Friends and nature make distance running feel easy

Posted by Hazel Wood Master Instructor on Mon Nov 2nd, 2009, 0 comments

Last Saturday was one of those memorable running days — in more ways than one.  I was scheduled to meet some friends at a local park and ride and then carpool to the place where we would start running.  When I wasn’t there at the appointed time they thought I must be running late.  Little [...]

A Chi Running Love Letter image

A Chi Running Love Letter

Over the past 45 years, I have trained for and run a race of one mile or longer every year but one. I worked my way up to running marathons, but in 1982 began experiencing knee pain – ultimately in both knees.
