My Name is Kiplimo Chemirmir, I’m a Kenyan runner, Creator of Kenthaichi massage technique and 12th warrior of the few last generation Orkoiyot Warriors of the great Kalenjin tribe, we’re more like monks in behavior and very calm and spiritual kind of warriors, we use nature to design ourselves, and learn from men who not to become. There’s less than six of us remaining now. I’m the first one to of all thousands of Orkoiyot warriors to ever leave the beautiful country of Kenya to come this far, also I’m the first one to ever write our stories in words, those before me only passed it in the word of mouth, and since we’re getting extinct because of religion, what I write here is very personal to me because many of them are sacred and ancient words that my ancestors lived by.
I’m a father to one brave little warrior, I have two adopted children too, hope someday to adopt more.
I stopped running professionally in the end of 2010 after getting a bad injury, on 2011 I became what I set for my future to be my destiny, A sports massage therapist, I work for myself because what I posses cannot be placed beneath someone else for it is a gift that I must carry it myself for it deserves to be lifted high because I alone have its knowledge. I call it Kenthaichi, its a technique I learned in Kenya, Thailand and China, I forged it together to be the great gift that it is today.
My friends call me ”The runimal”, because I run with the spirit of the animal, which I love it, but mostly I’m just a regular warrior on a quest to live life to its fullest while sharing wisdom and fixing injured runners, because I do not want to see anyone stop doing what they love because of an injury that could easily be fixed.
I began writing after going through many hardship and setbacks in life, and most of the quotes here are from my past and childhood times when I was being bred to be a warrior. I use them to motivate myself to stay strong like a warrior I was meant to be so I may be blind not to see the challenges that I am facing, then it came to mind that this is not just writing but a gift from my ancestors that blessed me with not only to inspire myself but also others, and write lessons and love to my son, and words I will be remembered for.
The majority of the time when the great spirit gives me something to write, it is because I need the encouragement. I just pass it along in words to help others stay enlightened and sometimes I write as a way to share my experiences and to learn more about life.
About my running life here is a piece of me.
