Feedback From Workshops

I took a one-on-one workshop with you at the beginning of last summer after having read Chirunning. I ran all summer, 2 or 3 times a week and was injury-free for the first time in my life (which for me means no sore left knee and no shin splints!). I was thrilled with my consistency and progress over the summer. L B Montreal

Thank you so much for the fantastic workshop yesterday!! I felt like we learned so much and it really puts all of the concepts from the book into context which really helps.
...... my toes were not happy with the way I used to run. Now they are much happier after a run since I am using the mid foot strike and my toes are thanking me for it CB Ottawa

You folks have helped me with my run IMMENSELY. I am doing 30 plus kms cummutively on a weekly basis since our last workshop 2 months ago. I have experienced no pain, soreness etc...
