I was lucky enough to be invited to a special dinner with Danny Dreyer. the founder of ChiRunning®, in San Jose. Danny used to live in the Bay Area and knows a lot of people up there. Many people he had been running with for years were there. After dinner he shared what he’s up to and how ChiRunning® is evolving.
I have been a certified instructor for the past 6 years and Danny is rarely in California. Every two years I assist a workshop to get recertified. It is also a great opportunity to work with Danny and learn his new teaching techniques. As usual, I had my camera with me and took some candid video while he was sharing his latest ChiRunning discoveries. If you are a Chi Runner this is a must watch video.
Of course I can’t give it all away. You’ll have to take a ChiRunning® Workshop for yourself, but I will posts a couple more snipets from the weekend. Every time I get to hang out with Danny I learn something new that helps my running and that I can share it with the runners I coach. This is Part 1.
