For many of us who have never thought about their running form, running can be a lot harder than it needs to be and may cause injuries that could be easily avoided. We may be activating muscles that aren’t required or actually work against us. We may also be using our body in a way that creates harmful impact.
RunEffortlessly.com is founded by Michael (Mike) Stashin, a running instructor based in Ottawa Canada who has a passion for introducing runners to simple changes they can make in their technique to reduce the amount of effort as well as the potential for injury due to impact.
Mike has used the techniques he teaches to successfully complete endurance events such as Running 7 Marathons in 7 Consecutive Days as well as the 250km Marathons Des Sables. He has also used his running as a gateway for adventures which have included marathons at the North Pole and along the Great Wall of China.
RunEffortlessly.com operates under Give Effortlessly Inc., a Canadian Non-Profit Corporation driven by a passion to give back to the local and global community. Give Effortlessly Inc. is actively involved in supporting the humanist efforts of Good Guys Tri and Impossible2Possible and regards the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO) as its favourite beneficiary for its charitable contributions.
