Ready to Run Easier and Get Faster?
If you want to run a new personal best, you’ve found the right place.
If you’re tired of injuries or not reaching your goals, Strength Running can help.
When you combine the right workouts, mileage, strength exercises, recovery, and “extras” the benefits are obvious:
- Faster workout times, increased speed, and better race results
- Fewer overuse injuries and the confidence to run more
- More consistency in your training (no more wondering what to do…)
Strength Running gives you the tools necessary to reach your big goals, like qualifying for the Boston Marathon or finally losing that extra weight. With top articles on injury prevention, barefoot running, motivational success stories, and new training ideas, you’ll find one of the hundreds of articles and videos here to help you become a better runner.
The Strength Running Difference
Most running sites offer the same bland “top 10″ tips and generic training advice that’s republished every other week. There’s no training philosophy that guides the information – it’s just published. Some of it is bad…very bad.
Here, all of the articles you read are informed by the Strength Running philosophy – a set of principles that help runners stay healthy and run faster. Subscribers to my newsletter are introduced to this philosophy in an extensive email course so they can start getting their training on track.
You can join thousands of other runners like you and sign up here to join the Strength Running Team. You’ll get an insider’s look into the guiding philosophy of Strength Running, plus free access to the Runner’s Gear Bag, a collection of workouts, guides, and exclusive resources only available for email readers.
Strength Running in the Media
Strength Running was born in 2010 and grew to one of the biggest running sites for coaching and unique running advice that helps runners crush their goals.
Strength Running hosts over 160,000 readers per month and has been featured in major media like Runner’s World, Fitness Magazine, Lifehacker, and the Huffington Post, among others.

Here’s some feedback from happy runners:
“Your training plan was just what I needed – it helped me run a big PR in a longer race than I thought I was ready for, all while feeling totally prepared. Without your plan, I don’t think I would have been able to run sub-6 pace the entire way. Thank you for pushing me to be my best!” – Eric, IL
“Love love love your blog! So informative.” – Irene, NC
“I’m f*ckin’ loving your site, Jason.” – Jim, Scotland
About Jason Fitzgerald
I founded Strength Running in early 2010 because of my passion for helping runners achieve their goals. After finishing the 2008 New York Marathon in 2:44, I developed a severe ITB injury. I was sidelined for six months, but that injury transformed my thoughts on running healthy and injury prevention.
With my new training philosophy, I haven’t had a major running injury since 2009. I ran more than I ever have in 2010 (and then again in 2012) and continue to get stronger. I ran a 5+ minute PR at the Philadelphia Marathon in 2:39:32.
I was the overall 1st-place winner at the 2011 Moraine Hills Half Marathon, 2012 Maryland Warrior Dash, and 2013 Potomac River Run Marathon.
Strength Running is where I share what I’ve learned to help you be a better runner.
In addition to being a USATF-certified running coach, I’m also the author of 101 Simple Ways to be a Better Runner and the co-author of The Rebel Running Guide. I’m also the co-founder of Run Your BQ, a community of runners who want to run a faster marathon.
I’ve been running competitively since 1998 and ran for Connecticut College, where I was a New England Qualifier and top ten finisher in the 3,000m Steeplechase.
I’m married, live in the Washington, DC area, and recently had my first child.
