Racing culture is killing running's true meaning

Chi Running, Costa Brava, Runner Testimonial


“I don’t know what I’m doing here, I hate running, I can’t stand it, I don’t know how to enjoy it”


We were all by the swimming pool at the beautiful 1901 Nord hotel in Girona, drinking Catalan Cava, and getting to know each other in the group.

To Gray Caws and I this was our a special moment, after 4 years of working together we got 11 runners for our Costa Brava Chi Running Adventure.

Gray asked to everyone, could each of you tell us a bit about yourself and about you think you are doing here, I will always remember Jane’s answer: “I don’t know what I’m doing here, I hate running, I can’t stand it, I don’t know how to enjoy it”

I thought to myself, wow, how are we going to help her? Jane was a cheerful person, but her altitude was a bit negative, what happened in the next four days is hard to explain, I can just say that thanks to Costa Brava\’s trails, Gray Caws knowledge, group camaraderie, and her own will, Jane enjoyed running for the first time, that was something really nice to see.

Seeing transformations in people like Jane, over and over again, have made me change completely they way a see running, there is something special about it, may be is just that we happened to bi bipeds designed to run.
