Having Marc Waxman as my ChiRunning coach has changed my life!! Marc is an amazing teacher and has taught me how to run injury free!! This was not easy since I was a true heel striker which caused me to have four tibial stress fractures in three years while trying to train for the marathon.
After my fourth stress fracture where my doctors ruled out causes due to bone density or vitamin D levels since all the test showed great results, the consensus was that I needed to relearn how to run!!
Research led me to ChiRunning and most importantly, Marc Waxman! At my first ChiRunning workshop I was amazed at Marc’s ability to teach. I was not surprised to learn he had a teaching background. Marc has helped me to learn how to run effectively and efficiently through guided runs and having me think about “form focuses” which he includes in my online training plan.
This past week I got a chance to use my training in the Providence Marathon. I came away injury free with a PR! A win win for me thanks to Marc and all his guidance. My goal is to Boston Qualify and although I did not achieve that on this attempt, I am confident that Marc will get me there! “I can and I will” is my motto but in reality I couldn’t come close without Marc!
I am looking forward to beginning another training cycle of guided runs with Marc along with ChiRunning “form focuses” on the Final Surge training plan. I know I’ll enjoy the challenge and like implementing and practicing the ChiRunning form on my runs. I truly believe Marc is the reason I am now finally able to run injury free. His ability to teach the ChiRunning technique along with smart coaching is crucial to my success as a runner.
