89K in South Africa with ChiRunning

« Go Back

Have to tell you how well I am doing with ChiRunning.  Bought the book 3 years ago and read it continually.  I started running 6 years ago (at age 61) after having been told that Walking would help with the arthritis. It was really hard until I read your book. Now, in spite of having two badly degenerated discs and almost no cartilage in one hip, I am still running. I am not the fastest girl at the races, but I did manage to do Comrades this year.  I ran/walked for 11 hours and 46 minutes completely pain free (89k). This was the happiest day of my life. I am probably not even doing the ChiRunning properly, but what I am doing certainly makes it a lot easier on the body.  Thank you, Danny.

Here is a pic taken during this year’s Comrades at about 4pm – had been running / walking since 5:30am.
