"Working with Jae and learning the Feldenkrais Method has helped me extend my career as an elite runner. We can all discover new ways of moving that are more efficient and involve less effort. This translates to running faster and staying healthy no matter what your age or ability level!" --Jen Rhines, three-time Olympian

Are you tired of pushing yourself mindlessly, not getting the results you want, and not enjoying your runs? Do you dream of becoming a runner who doesn’t have to fight their body every step of the way? You absolutely can get there. And whether you’re a new runner or a seasoned one, the solution is the same. Bring your mind and your awareness into your running. Learn what to check in with and how to do it so you work with your body instead of fighting it. You’ll run smoother, faster, and easier, and you’ll feel a lot better doing it. Technical struggles will fade away and pains you’ve learned to live with will ease and maybe even vanish. Does this sound good to you? Then join The Balanced Runner’s free, one-week Mind Your Running Challenge. Each day you’ll listen to a brief audio recording guiding you through an exercise to help you learn how to run smoother, easier, healthier, and faster. You can do it right before a run or all by itself as a short activity break in a busy day. You don’t even have to put on running clothes (but you can if you want). No worries if you’re having a busy week — all you’ll need for the challenge is about 10 minutes per day.

Not sure if this will work for you? Think you might be the one runner out there who’s so uncoordinated or so out of touch with your body that it’ll be impossible? Join the challenge and I will prove you wrong. (But in a nice way.)
