Be gentle

to yourself

and others!

“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.

Run tall (The Spanish Dancer)

Land smoothly

Small strides

Lift the knee

Keep the cadence and the spring

When you are tired
