Hi Amy (Certified ChiRunning Instructor),
I wanted to drop you a quick note of update and thanks for your invaluable lessons in ChiRunning. I ran the Urbanathlon in Chicago a couple weeks ago–12 mile obstacle course–and finished stronger than I could have dreamed. The friends I thought would have to wait for me, well, I was practically dragging them the whole last hour. Mile 10 was done on the stairs at the Bears football stadium and while others were fading, wheezing or throwing up, I ran the stairs two at a time. Though I waited for my friends and finished with them this year, next year they’d better keep up or I’m leaving them. And not a hint of knee pain the entire race.
I couldn’t have done it without you, or ChiRunning. I think it’s important for people to know that what they do helps others and makes a difference in people’s lives. Know that you have done that with me. Thanks so much and I need to book some time with you after I finish this crazy semester of grad school. Take care and Happy Halloween!
