Finished Faster with Chi Training Program

Hello Chi Runners,

I am French and I live in Italy. I am 47 and I started running 7 years ago, and discovered Chi Running 3 years ago.
Today, I ran Missoula Marathon (great people, great organization, great spirit!). I had left my standard training plan for the Chi Marathon (intermediate) one. It worked beautifully! I thought I could reach 4.10, I finished in 3.47! Thanks! Here is a picture of my focuses for today, can you recognize them?
1) align legs and feet / create column / land mid foot
2) level pelvis / rotate pelvis
3) shoulders forwards / elbows back
4) Heels up-knees down / extend spine

Thanks again!

A Chi Running Love Letter

A message of pure gratitude as your book on Chi Running has completely changed my running experience. In only three and a half years I've gone through patellar tendonitis (in both knees), plantar fasciitis, and many other injuries I can't even describe.
