Sarah Lovelidge Certified Instructor
Off and on throughout my life, I have run. It wasn’t until I was in my early fifties that I took a training class from the local running shop and realized that I really do love to run. This began a quest for the perfect form. How could I move my body in the best way – in a way that allowed me to move with efficiency? What about breathing? What other ways could I improve my movement? So I was looking without realizing that I was looking.
Shortly after getting into running, I was visiting my brother and his family. I spotted a book on their bookshelf. . .”Chi Running”, by Danny Dryer. I quickly scanned the blurb – “Energy efficiency, injury prevention!” What! I turned to my sister-in-law – “Lisa, what’s this? Where did you get it?” It turned out that they had been given the book in a box with other books. They chose a few to put on the shelf. I practically demanded that they let me take the book, and the rest is my personal running history. Within a few months I had taken a life-changing level one class. Then it was a full day of level two with Danny. Next, certified instructor training. Dozens of races under my belt.
I am running regularly and loving the confidence I have in my stride, breath, and technique. It would be my pleasure to share what I have learned with you, either in a private class or a small group, your area or mine.
