• FREE Running Intro to ChiRunning, Pose Method & Natural Running
    Introduction to ChiRunning (http://www.chirunning.com/), Natural Running (http://www.posetech.com/services/OzzieGontang.html) and Pose Method (http://www.posetech.com/services/OzzieGontang.html) with Ozzie Gontang (http://mindfulness.com). Learn to run with regular running shoe, minimalist running shoes using the form and style used by Barefoot Runners. The principles Ozzie wrote about back in the late 90's have become the "primary principle of barefoot running." (http://www.mindfulness.com/2009/11/24/mindful-running-ya-never-know-your-impact/) Easy 2 to 4 mile run while practicing the principles of my running friends: ChiRunning (Danny Dreyer), Natural Running (Danny Abshire), Barefoot Running (Barefoot Ken Bob Saxton/Lee Saxby) and Pose Method (Nicholas Romanov). Several stops along the way to teach techniques for injury prevention. Check out Ozzie's blog on Mindful Running (http://www.mindfulness.com/category/mindful-running/) which has a lot of articles compiled on running and marathoning. Check out local coach Ben Boyd's site: Effortless Running (http://effortlessrunning.com). A good place to get the basics or to get a better understanding of ChiRunning, Natural Running or Pose Method. Also where the concepts are put into practice right away during a 2 to 4 mile run. Teaching students these methods that to run with a quick cadence allows less impact and therefore less injuries. As the Intro sessions progress there will be groups that do social 6 or social 8 miles runs so that one can practice as these slower speeds the quicker cadence and the proper form for ChiRunning, Natural Running and Pose Method. The basic understanding is that the ball/heel/ball form of running is the same at slower speeds so that when ready one can increase their speed by simply leaning from the ankle while still maintaining the cadence that was practiced at the slower speed. Getting the form and style right at a slower speed will translate directly to the same form and style at a fast speed. Simply: one learns to fall gracefully at a faster speed with a continued graceful recovery with each step

  • Mission Bay Wednesday Run
    This run started in 2007 and is one of the classics of our Meetup group with its scenic bay route and easy-to-access location off the freeway. It was formerly the Road Runner Sports Group Run and will continue as simply the Mission Bay Wednesday Run. For the time being, this will be a group-led run with not one person leading but instead several of the group veterans taking turns leading. The run is up to 5 miles (although you can turn back early for a shorter distance) from the same starting point every week year round. We run out toward Sea World for the Summer Course (http://www.mapmyrun.com/us/la-jolla-ca/rrs-group-run-summer-course-route-17630976) and stick to the Mission Bay path for the Winter Course (http://www.mapmyrun.com/us/la-jolla-ca/rrs-group-run-winter-course-route-17631106). Directions: The Runners Restroom is right on the Mission Bay path and has a rack of race flyers and magazines. Head west on Clairemont Drive to the end and take a left on E. Mission Bay Drive. The parking lot for the Runners Restroom is just a hundred feet up the street on the right. We meet at the tree to the right of the restroom.

  • Wednesdays at the Lake
    ALL ABILITIES RUN AND WALK. We meet on the patio at the Starbucks. Join us for a run at Lake Murray for the Wednesdays at the Lake event! Run or walk before work and maybe join us for a coffee or pastry afterwards! We have a small group of regulars and always have new people cycle through (we love meeting new runners and walkers). Super awesome group of people, different speed and abilities so come on out and run! Run is at 6:15ish am and will be conversational (we have some great conversationalists). One of the few (perhaps only?) East County (La Mesa) meet up run events, and one in an amazingly beautiful place. Lake Murray is a great place for a run.
