Eternally Grateful to ChiRunning

« Go Back

I have been running in Brooks Glycerin, a good neutral shoe, but about 2 years ago I got a terrible bone spur on my right heel. I tried everything to get rid of it (shock wave therapy, Electro-therapy, magnetic, acupuncture, Cortizone injections, stretching, Strassbourg sock at night, herbs, diet change…you name it, I did it). Finally after many trial and error episodes, I found a foot specialist here in Germany in August (the 2 year mark of my problem) that injected it with Cortizone and for now it is gone. I had tried the Cortizone before but with another doctor and it didn’t help. Now I’m just glad it’s gone.

In the US this summer on a visit home, I discovered the ChiRunning book and it has now become my “Bible for running”. After two years of not running, I am back on the path and ChiRunning has helped me tremendously. I ordered the book, the audio, the DVD, even the t-shirt 🙂 I have a friend here that is into barefoot technology, but it is not ChiRunning.

You have already helped me so much just getting back on the road and for that I am eternally grateful. 🙂 Maybe someday I too can become an Instructor.
