ChiRunning Her Way to Her First Marathon

To Laura Houston - Master Instructor, Seattle


I always said that I would never do a Marathon. Mostly because I kept hurting myself at the half marathon distance, but after learning and employing Chirunning into my run, I did the Tacoma Marathon on Sunday May 5, 2014 and I finished with a smile and feeling good.

When a calf muscle started to act up early on, I could hear Danny's voice from the Chirunning App telling me to focus and relax wink. I actually spent several miles visualizing Chi spreading out from my center in bright green tendrils (like the color of new growth in the spring) to all parts of my body bringing energy and relaxation.

I felt great and deeply appreciative of all the work you and Danny do!
