When I arrived at FinishLine, the first person I met was Andre. He knew my name before I even introduced myself and he was extremely welcoming. Then came Sara! We chatted a little bit about half marathons and then I headed off to the changing room.

I started off with the AlterG set at 75% of my body weight (108lbs). I did feel lighter in my run. After a few minutes Andre came over to tell me to fluctuate the body weight setting so I could really see what it felt like to run with no pressure. I decreased the body weight option slowly; because I had no idea what to expect. When I hit 30% I felt like I was running on marshmallows with the stride of a gazelle. I was float-running; the only part of my body hitting the ground was my toes. Absolutely amazing! I admit that the 30 minute run on the AlterG has changed my outlook on how much improvement I need in my running form.
