As we approach the end of the year we naturally turn to review and reflection. In that spirit, here are The Keys to Becoming a Balanced Runner, the 10 interrelating elements of healthy, flowing, free running.
I wrote one or two blog posts about each of them over the past year, but here they are all in one place for you to read through and experiment with during the holidays.
Over the next few weeks I’ll be preparing a crowdfunding campaign to launch in early January, raising money to grow The Balanced Runner and help more runners like you. The campaign will feature my best offerings — recordings, guides, consultations, and my online running camps — at special prices.
There’ll be an extra discount in the first couple of days of the campaign exclusively for people on my email list, so if you aren’t on my list, scroll to the bottom of the page to join.
Next week I’ll give you a sneak peak of the campaign, but till then enjoy The Keys to Becoming a Balanced Runner. Read them over and when you run look for one that comes naturally and easily to you. Enjoy doing that for a while, and then you’ll probably notice that another has appeared. Enjoy that and you may even discover yourself doing a third… that’s the only safe effective way to work on your technique, and with that approach I’m pretty sure you’ll find yourself truly enjoying your holiday runs.
