Join Certified ChiRunning® Master Instructor Alice Peters Diffely of Portland, Oregon online at this free informational event on Wednesday, January 10, 2024 fromf 6:30pm-7:30pm PST to learn more about the newly created Ease of Motion Training Project and it’s inaugural targeted event, the Timberline Half Marathon to take place Sunday, June 9, 2024 around Timothy Lake on Mt. Hood.

Training will be drawn from the ChiRunning® Intermediate Half Marathon Training Plan, which Alice has used in preparation for many races. This 12-week plan, aimed at helping you train and race with greater ease and less risk of injury, is unique in that it incorporates form focuses suggestions in addition to the more typical mileage progressions, speed workouts, and hill repeats. It’s available in both an online format and a print format. Alice will be happy to consult with you periodically about adapting the plan to fit your schedule and your needs. The 12-week training period will begin March 17, 2024.

To help set up up for success, pre-season resources will be offered beginning in mid-January. They’ll include a series of several online Yoga for Runners sequences led by Alice. Depending on the weather and other commitments, many Saturday mornings from 8am-9am between January 20 and March 16 she’ll also host pre-season ChiRunning Form Focus Sessions, initially at NE Portland’s Grant Park track and in later weeks on hills and trails in NW Portland’s Forest Park.
Once the 12-week training schedule is underway in mid-March, Alice will host group training runs most Wednesday evenings at 6:30pm, as well as group long runs most Saturday mornings (and occasional Sundays instead) at 7:30am. Group training runs and group long runs will take place in Forest Park.

Aside from your race registration fee of about $40 and the roughly $35-$40 cost of purchasing one of the training plans (on-line or printed booklet) from ChiLiving, Inc., there is no upfront charge to participate in the Ease of Motion Training Project. However, as you participate in events or receive coaching advice, Alice will appreciate occasional donations to Ease of Motion, Inc. to support her work.
