From the authors of the bestselling Chi Running, a game-changing training guide for injury-free long distance running.Injury among marathoners is between 80 and 90 percent. Most marathon books and training programs focus primarily on building stamina—but they often don’t address how running all those miles may be seriously harming your body. Chi Marathon debunks the myth that marathons require pushing through and beyond pain and presents a technique-based plan for pain-and-injury-free high performance half and full marathons. Chi Marathon also shows you how to improve your performance by developing your own race-specific training plan tailored to your event.In Chi Marathon, author Danny Dreyer, a highly respected running coach and accomplished distance runner, takes a whole-body approach to running—much like Tai Chi—making ease and efficiency of movement the prime goal of one’s training. Danny and Katherine Dreyer launched the Chi Running movement twelve years ago and now have over 200 certified Chi Running Instructors around the world as well as a strong selling line of DVD’s and training programs. The Dreyers also present Chi Running workshops at many of the U.S. marathons and have a 40,000 subscriber newsletter as well as receiving 50,000 hits a month on their website. Chi Marathon is the book that distance runners have been waiting for. With Chi Marathon runners can revolutionize their technique, their approach to distance running…and their lives.
