Update: Chi Running Changes Everything!
I figured it was about time for an update. Chi Running has been the greatest influence on my athletics in quite some time. Of course, my running has improved: I'm faster, my joints feel great, my muscles never feel stressed. But what's most important is I've been able to apply these Chi Running principles in the field. At work, I use the same approach to all of my movement. I focus on technique which leaves my knees feeling great despite carrying a 30 lb. pack and sometimes a 25 lb. chainsaw too while on the fireline. Then in my free time, I've taken to running when I'm mountaineering. I move swifter, safer, and finish the day feeling great. The awareness I achieve from centering my body, mind, emotions, and spirit is unparalleled. I'll continue to share the word of the better way to move!
