Chi Walked a Marathon!

July 12th, 2010

Yesterday I finished my first marathon! I accomplished this using the Chi Walking technique, with a few Chi Running moments thrown in for good measure. The focuses helped me get through the tough parts, and  when I got to the last few miles and I was exhausted, each step was a reminder to perfect my form, breathe completely, and gather my energy from the earth.

Six months ago I was an overweight 54 year old couch potato.  Well, I'm older, now, but weigh 40 pounds less, and my legs are the legs of a walker. I feel truly blessed to have had this experience.
