My running story started with me walking in place in front of the TV. I was an executive in the technology industry with two young children and very overweight. I went from not being able to go up stairs without getting out of breath to losing over 100 pounds and participating in triathlons and obstacle course races. I didn’t do this overnight. I did this gradually, over years. I am still doing it.
I almost quit, many many many times. I did quit. Several times.
Knee pain, plantar fasciitis, hip pain, breathing issues, embarrassment, bathroom issues. Been there. Done that.
Then I stumbled upon ChiRunning and ChiWalking. What? I can run without pain? I can run without wanting to toss my cookies? People actually breathe when they run? I fell in love with ChiRunning and ChiWalking. So much so that I went to Asheville, NC to train directly with Danny Dreyer to get my instructor certification.
I am not an ultra-marathoner. I am not an elite athlete. I am not a doctor, nutritionist, or therapist. I am a mom of teenagers. I am a business professional during the day. I am a ChiRunner. I love helping people. Let me help you learn to walk smart and run happy through ChiWalking and ChiRunning and welcome back running one step at a time.
