Quote of the Month:

“When I made my mile-9 surge in Munich (1972) however, those guys let me escape. Not only had I snapped the invisible thread, I had disappeared entirely. Meanwhile, behind me, the other runners still appeared to be thinking like traditional, steady state, war-of-attrition marathoners. Now I was running alone. It was just me and the long blue line that traced the 26.2-mile route through Old Munich, the city where I had been born.” – Frank Shorter

“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.

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.



Work With Me!

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.

You already know a lot about your body, what you’re feeling, what’s wrong with you or what you need to strengthen. 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 strengths, and discover a new direction for yourself.

If you’d like learn more about how you can make any of my running resources and activities part of a training routine that can directly enhance your health and running performance plus receive invaluable assistance on your path to self-knowledge keep perusing the site!

Self-Leadership in Healing Trauma – Running’s Role

Running and sport involvement is one of many innovative treatments for healing trauma. Activities like music, meditation, drama, and yoga offer new pathways to recovery by stimulating the brain’s natural neuro-plasticity. Creative therapists are employing exercises that help people focus on bodily sensations— and it’s largely through heightened body awareness that past traumas can be renegotiated and revisited rather than relived repeatedly.

Two Tactics…

One thing I love about the Bolder Boulder Citizen’s Race is that the frequent bends and turns in the course offer a perfect opportunity to employ a fun racing tactic I learned from the great Frank Shorter:"In any kind of distance race there is an invisible thread that stretches about 10 meters. If a fellow competitor is running 10 meters or less in front of you, you’ll find that you can usually pull even or spurt past them anytime you choose."

Happy Hill Running

 Approached confidently, varying the terrain on which you train actually helps you become more efficient and reduces your chances of injury by breaking up the repetition of the same motions. The more precise coordination required to accelerate down a hill or to sustain a steady rhythm up to the top of a mountain pass when combined with the corresponding changes in cadence and habitual stride patterns serve to alleviate the repetitive-stress (and aches and pains) of running the same pace mile after mile on the flats.
