Elizabeth Frost Certified Instructor
Liz considers herself one of the luckiest runners in the world. Having suffered from the “I’m not a runner” syndrome for most of her life, her luck changed when she happened upon Chi Running (after getting a job at the ChiLiving offices).
After learning the Chi Running and Chi Walking techniques from Danny on the tracks and trails around Asheville, NC, she went from a lumbering, inefficient “monster runner”, to a grateful, happy, efficient Chi Runner. A long-standing sciatic nerve issue no longer bothers her, and walking for long periods of time is now a pain-free experience, thanks to Chi Walking.
Much to the disbelief of some of her triathlete buddies from college, Liz became a Certified Chi Running & Chi Walking Instructor in 2009, and now teaches these life-changing techniques any chance she can!
She successfully ran her first half marathon in January 2009—after only 6 months after of running—ran the Biltmore Estate/Kiwanis Club 15K in May 2010, and PR’d at the Asheville Half Marathon, Sept. 18, 2010 in 2:00:53. She ran the Houston Half Marathon (again) in January 2011, without having adequately trained, but finished with a smile on her face and no pain or injuries.
Liz is grateful for the body awareness and depth of experience Chi Running and Chi Walking have provided her: “I have learned that I am in control of my body, and that I have a choice—every time I move my body—to move it in an efficient and pain-free way. I have discovered a love for running that I previously thought would never be mine, and I am amazed at how much I have learned about myself and my body in the process of learning to Body Sense.”
Liz is available for group or individual instruction, and welcomes the opportunity to speak with anyone who has questions about Chi Running or Chi Walking. Visit her blog to read more about her experience and training, as well as a recent ESPNW interview here.
