Trail Running and Poison Ivy

Posted by Danny Dreyer on Tue Jun 23rd, 2009, 15 comments

I’ve received a lot of ChiRunning email lately responding to my blogs about trail running. One topic that has popped up more than once is poison ivy, that nasty little plant that loves to make your skin look like an overcooked cheese pizza. I’m highly allergic to it, so I can empathize with all of [...]

Running is all about Form — and Gradual Progress

Posted by Elizabeth Frost on Wed Jun 10th, 2009, 4 comments

I think of Gradual Progress as the framework around which ChiRunning can be learned. One step at a time, things should be incrementally and fully learned before moving on to the next step.

Located outside of Corvallis, Oregon, this trail run includes 6,700 ft of uphill, windy and perilous downhill, lots of mud and streams and logs to navigate.

Trail Running 101 (cont.):  How to Run more Confidently

Posted by Danny Dreyer on Mon Jun 1st, 2009, 13 comments

When I ask attendees at my ChiRunning workshops, I’m always amazed at how many runners don’t run trails. I suppose there are lots of reasons why someone might be a bit shy about heading out into Nature with nothing but dirt to land on. Could it be the wild animals that lurk in the woods? [...]
