Humans have evolved as persistence hunting runners and cooperative animals. This is why we are now the most evolved species on Earth. And this is why the key to our happy and sustainable future on Earth depends on how we use persistence, cooperation, gentleness, and, of course, running.

“Life is hard enough to add extra suffering to it”. We propose here a way to build a stronger, healthier and happier self through gentle running. Then, this “ascetic hedonism” can be translated into several aspects of life, to humbly contribute to a better world.

Through a particularly difficult life, I have been forced to find ways to survive both physically and emotionally.
During this journey, I discovered that the human body and the human brain are capable of amazing things.
I also discovered that the only way out of extreme physical or emotional pain is GENTLENESS.
Now my life is a little easier because I apply GENTLENESS to myself and others.
AND MORE IMPORTANTLY, I WANT TO SHARE MY RECIPES TO AN EASIER LIFE WITH ANYONE WHO IS INTERESTED.
This site is about self-construction, and not about competition. It is meant to show that all of us humans are capable of extraordinary deeds with a little bit of practice, self-discipline and humility.
However, if you apply this GENTLENESS principles to a competitive situation, you will get more efficient at anything you undertake.
