Brenda Gibson Certified Instructor
Brenda Gibson became Ohio’s first certified ChiRunning and ChiWalking instructor in 2006. Since then she has been teaching regularly in the Dayton, Ohio area. She has traveled to Chicago and California to teach ChiRunning at workshops with ChiRunning creator Danny Dreyer and Master Instructor Kathy Griest. She also has served as an assistant instructor at the ChiRunning Instructors Training in Asheville, NC preparing upcoming instructors.
Brenda always had an on-again, off-again love affair with running before ChiRunning. Shin splints, back pain, and years later knee pain made running more trouble than it was worth. After years of starting and stopping for injuries and pain, she abandoned it altogether for several years.
She then discovered ChiRunning in September of 2005 and “my running life was reborn,” she says.
