Quote of the Month:

“While endurance sports may provide an opening to greater health, happiness and confidence, there’s no easy way of running. Sometimes it hurts! But there certainly are many ways to make it easier. Knowledge, training, and coaching can dramatically increase your efficiency and enjoyment while reducing the risk of injury and burnout.”- Art

“In the most ordinary terms, egolessness is a flexible identity. It manifests as inquisitiveness, as adaptability, as humor, as playfulness. It is our capacity to relax with not knowing, not figuring everything out, with not being at all sure who we are, or who anyone else is, either.”  Pema Chodron 

 


 Think and Grow Faster

In many ways our sport is beautifully simple, all you do is lace up your running shoes and head out the door. Yet we all need form checks, training games and spiritual wake-up calls to outsmart our brains and renew our commitment to always searching for that small bit of range of motion beyond our comfort zone. My job is to support you in your search by humanizing the science and opening your mind to the way of running that suits you best.

It’s easy to assume that running and other endurance activities always lead to a wide range of health benefits, but our overall health is also influenced by how we lead our lives, both at home and at work. We’re all familiar with how much stress can arise due to competing demands on our time and attention. Best case scenario, the time we spend in training can help counteract these tensions by putting them in perspective and making them manageable. For some this might actually mean downsizing and restructuring their training.



 Run With Me!

The ideal amount and intensity of training and the time it takes to affect the body positively varies greatly from person to person depending on their health and well being. So when it comes down to it, a less intense workout is often more beneficial than one that’s more intense. Those who continually work this way, keep their running fresh and increase their inner freedom by outdistancing their age and gaining new levels of performance.

You already feel a lot about your body’s strengths and weaknesses. You just need to own these things so you can work on them! Whatever your sports background, injury history or personal records are, The Way Of Running shows how you can overcome your inner barriers, realize your unique gifts and potentials, and discover a new direction for yourself.
