The Way of Running
There is a secret that only runners know: running is one of the most life-enhancing activities available to a human being. But runners know another secret as well: it’s not always easy. Sometimes it hurts. Those who get started on the path of running face the ever-present risk of injury, burnout, and disillusionment. Some even give up altogether. I established The Way Of Running to teach runners how they can minimize their risks and maximize their enjoyment; how they can run any distance they want, again and again, simply for the pure pleasure of it!
After more than 30 years devoted to what I love — the science and practice of running — I have developed an approach to coaching that is accessible to everyone: beginners, experts, and every level in between. In this “Way,” technique, intelligence, passion, and the ability to focus the mind all work in harmony.
While meticulous planning, testing and monitoring all have their place in running, they can’t give us a complete picture of our true, innate running ability. By over-focusing on tangible physiological benchmarks, we often overlook the intangibles: the psychological, spiritual, and even mystical factors that allow us to tap into our energies and unlock our hidden potential.
Start moving with me and see how this “dance of disciplines” — exercise science, training theory and mind-body interaction — all merge synergistically into practical, tangible, enjoyable results!
