Chi Running and Chi Parenting

I'm always trying to live my life in a more mindful way, so when I stumbled mindlessly upon this book about Chi Running I got all excited.

'ChiRunning combines the inner focus and flow of T'ai Chi with the power and energy of running to create a revolutionary running form and philosophy. The ChiRunning program increases mental clarity and focus, enhances the joy of running, and turns running into a safe and effective lifelong program for health, fitness, and well-being.'

Sounds great, doesn't it?! So I bought the book and registered for the workshop. The workshop won't start till november but the book is on my nightstand and every night I read a chapter.

It certainly helps me to run in a more mindful manner, and it got me off my iPod addiction in one swell swoop. I'm too busy listening to my body to listen to any music! Already I''m hearing my shoulders telling me they tend to tense when I'm running.

I like the idea of running from the core of my being.
And I hope to start Chi Parenting in the same way I'm learning to run.

Someone recommended this book to me last year and I read it, it changed my running and my racing. It is truly a fascinating book! I also attended a short workshop at a marathon expo last year and it was very helpful with foot placement, etc. Yes, this will change your running! There is another more scientific book on running out there that is very similar, not quite as spiritual but it has a lot of half and full marathon plans. Enjoy that book!
