Due to tendonitis in my left leg…

May 10th, 2011

Danny,

I picked up your book 2 months ago. My wife saw you on CNN. I stopped running 15 years ago due to tendonitis in my left leg. Over the years I could only get up to 2 or 3 miles without any pain. So I took up cycling. I did a sprint triathlon in October and struggled with the 2.5 mile run.

After reading your book and trying out your technique I was able to run my first 10k in December. I ran a very comfortable 55:08. I now know using ChiRunning I can work my way up to a half marathon.

Thanks for helping me get back into running.

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.
