Certified Since January 2010
In 2005, doctors told Marie (a recreational runner at the time) that she would never run again due to a massive injury resulting in a broken hip and torn hamstring. She refused to let that become her reality. After months of searching for a solution that would allow her to run again, Marie found a copy of ChiRunning. Through consistent practice of the techniques, Marie was able to return to running as a stronger, faster athlete.
She went on to become a Certified Chi Running Instructor in 2010, and run 57 half-marathons, 12 full marathons and 143 other races of varied distances since discovering Chi Running. She is also a competitive body builder, with 3 podium wins and a flexibility/mobility teacher. 80% of her athletic success she credits to great nutrition, which inspired her to become a certified nutritionist. While she specializes in sports nutrition, a large part of her work centers on stress management through nutrition and movement.
