New Love Letter: Running is Fun Again
I have been doing Chi running for about 8 months now and it’s changed my life.
Every day I look forward to my daily run and the best part is, injuries just don’t happen to me anymore. I have mild Cerebral Palsy, so running before was a challenge as I was always getting injured every couple of months. Frustrating. I got back into running at the age of 44 after not running seriously since age nineteen. I completed three marathons back then despite my injuries. Now, running is fun again… after all those years. The best part is, everyday my runs are getting to the point of like floating on air.
Every goal I have set in running, as far as distance goes, I have achieved. I live in the North of Canada where, in the Winter, I run in temperatures as cold as – 50º on the icy roads.
I have cried after some of my runs because I think to myself, “Is this real?” I can’t believe what I am achieving since starting ChiRunning.
In closing I want to give thanks.
