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 and a renewed joy with running

Strength Running can give you the tools necessary to reach your big goals, like running your first marathon or finally losing that extra weight. Our award-winning blog has articles on injury prevention, barefoot running, motivational success stories, and new training ideas, so I know I can help you become a better runner.

About Strength Running


Strength Running began in 2010 and quickly grew to one of the largest running blogs on the web with over 200,000 readers per month. It has been featured in Runner’s World, Competitor Magazine, USA Today, The Huffington Post, and most other major media.

What makes SR stand out is the quality of our running advice: you won’t find general “4 easy tips for marathon success” posts. Most articles are double the length and quality of other running sites.

More importantly, everything on Strength Running is guided by Jason Fitzgerald’s unique coaching philosophy – a set of training principles that help runners race faster and stay healthy.

Subscribers to the SR email list are introduced to this philosophy in an extensive email course (free) that shows them how to improve their finish times while preventing more injuries.

These principles form the core training guidelines that help Strength Running athletes accomplish more than most other runners. Check out results here and here from using SR running programs.

About Jason Fitzgerald

About Jason

I created Strength Running in early 2010 because I knew I could help runners avoid the mistakes that nearly sidelined my own running. After finishing the 2008 New York Marathon in 2:44, I developed a severe ITB injury. I was sidelined for six months, wondering if I would ever be able to run pain-free again.

But that injury transformed my thoughts on running healthy and injury prevention. My training changed dramatically and I finally “cracked the code” of my constant injury cycle.

With my new training philosophy, I’ve only had one injury since 2009. I’ve since run more than ever and 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 USA Track & Field certified coach, I’m the author of 101 Simple Ways to be a Better Runner and the co-founder of Run Your BQ, a community of runners who want to run a faster marathon. I’m a part of the Greatist Expert Network and write regularly for publications like Competitor Magazine, Daily Burn, and Active.

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. But my real love is cross country, where I was a Varsity team member for three years and received the “Most Improved” award in 2005.

I’m married and live in Denver, CO with my (growing!) family.
