A 10-year dream made possible through ChiRunning

« Go Back

7 months ago, I bought the ChiRunning book and audio download as my final attempt to fulfill a decade-old dream of crossing the finish line of a full city marathon just once in my life.  I’m 37, and over the past 12 years, have quit running 3 times due to chronic knee pain, and was told by a sports doctor to “try changing to swimming.”

On March 22, I crossed the finish line of the Tokyo Marathon in 5hr06, my arms raised in triumph.

At the 35km point, I could hear your voice in my head, calmly saying, “check your posture, relax your shoulders, lift your legs, lean.”

Danny, thank you for helping me finish my first marathon.  It was everything I dreamed it would be.

P.S. I’m already planning my second marathon!
