First Marathon at age 63 with ChiRunning!
After 4 decades of recreational running distances from 5K to half marathon with a heel strike, I began in November, 2009 to study ChiRunning due to increasing recovery times from runs and chronic fatigue as well as sore ham strings. After months of work with ChiRunning, I signed up for the Des Moines Marathon and worked with the 20 week ChiRunning “Intermediate” Marathon manual. At 63, on 10/17/2010, I finished my first ever marathon in the Boston Marathon qualifying time of 3:45:39 — and I felt great afterward!!!
At 63, this old runner is of the firm conviction that ChiRunning is the best running technique he has ever seen.
Looking ahead to years of running!
