Chi Running Survey: Request from Mark Cucuzzella and Danny Dreyer
Posted on March 04 2011
My friend Mark Cucuzzella is conducting a survey about Chi Running in conjunction with Chi Running founder Danny Dreyer. I had the opportunity to meet Danny at the recent running injury conference I attended in Shepherdstown, WV, and was able to participate in a short, one hour Chi Running workshop with him. I was impressed by Danny’s patient and thoughtful approach to teaching running form, and had the opportunity to talk with a number of runners who have benefitted greatly by adopting Chi. Mark asked me if I would be willing to post a short message introducing and linking to their survey – if you have experience with Chi Running, please consider filling it out.
Here is the message from Mark and Danny:
As the interest in natural and barefoot running grows, forward-thinking doctors, scientists and physical therapists want information about best practices for injury-prevention and recovery.
Please help us and the scientific community determine the effectiveness of the Chi Running and Chi Walking techniques by taking this short survey.
You can help us gauge the effectiveness of our programs which will, in turn, offer incentive to the scientific community to embark on further studies which will add substantiation to the natural running movement. Please help us bridge the current gap between practice and science.
The University of West Virginia Institutional Review Board has approved this survey. it will take about 3 to 5 minutes.
Thank you for all your support.
Danny Dreyer, Founder of Chi Running
