We have flown the air like birds
And have swum the sea like fishes
But have yet to learn the simple act
Of walking the earth like brothers
To see what I have been doing lately go to:

Below is an email from a past workshop participant
I hope you had a wonderful weekend. I wanted to thank you for such an amazing clinic on Saturday. I learned so much, although I mostly realized that I have a great deal to practice.
I am curious if you have availability for a private session and if so, what do you charge? I really liked your direct style and I think my running would visibly improve from a few sessions with you.
GARY GOES OFF ON NEW RUNNNG WEB SITE – SOCALRUNNING.COM – ChiRunning® Instructor Gary Smith is posting videocasts for SoCalRunning.com. These are funny and insightful. Gary and I have been working on developing a local running community based on the benefits and enjoyment of running. We have also been thinking of ways to bring runners together for some group runs.

TRI THIS COACHING HAS ADDED MASSAGE AS A SERVICE ? A ChiRunning paradigm is Body Sensing. This is integral in yoga and should be applied to all your training modalities. This mind/body connection is paramount for peak performance. Bodywork should play a part in strengthening this connection. Athletes have been using the benefits of massage for centuries. Lance Armstrong receives a massage everyday on the Tour de France, and before and after most of his training sessions. Massage plays a major role helping the body to regenerate, nurish, move toxins and relax muscles. In order to better serve you I have compeleted my certification and I am being trained in advanced Sports Massage techniques as well.
