A New Mentality with Chi Running

A "thank you very much" note: I just finished a race that I have run for the last 6 years. After finishing the race last year I decided to try Chi Running. Long story short, my usual pace for the 5 miler was a 9:30 - 10 m/m depending on the year. This year, after training Chi Running style I crossed the finish at a 8:40m/m. Such a difference in so many ways ... recovery was not an issue this time around, and the hills were brutal!

Honored and thankful for the new mentality of my training ... my shins, plantar fascia, and ankles thank you!!
