Hello Running and Walking Community of Bakersfield & Beyond!
Let me begin by saying how much I have missed sharing the trails with all of you these past few years! Motherhood, however, has trumped my running world temporarily. Instead of celebrating marathon accomplishments, I just celebrated Maxine’s 2nd birthday!
There is so much news to share about ChiRunning and ChiWalking that I could never fit it into this email. If you’d like more information on all that is going on, check out the ChiRunning official website at www.chirunning.com.

Just what IS ChiRunning?
For beginners and competitors and practiced by thousands of runners, ChiRunning combines modern physics with the ancient wisdom of T’ai Chi to create a running form that is easily learned and makes running more effortless and enjoyable.
Endorsed by top runners, medical doctors, and regular people, ChiRunning is revolutionizing the sport of running.
What will I get out of the workshop?
In this workshop you will learn the basic ingredients of the ChiRunning® Technique.
I will be guiding you through many exercises and drills designed to leave you with a clear sense of what the ChiRunning technique feels like in your body. We will not be doing lots of running (contrary to what you might imagine), so no matter what condition you’re in, have no fear. We will spend the day alternating between demonstrations, fun exercises and technique drills…the nature of the day will be relaxed, full, and inspiring.
