Strength Running Updates

Tweet In the immortal words of C.S. Lewis: It may be hard for an egg to turn into a bird: it would be a jolly sight harder for it to learn to fly while remaining an egg. We are like eggs at present. And you cannot go on indefinitely being just an ordinary, decent egg. […]

Tweet I’ll admit: I’m in a slump. Motivation is low and the only inspiration to run I’ve had recently was when the scale showed an extra ten pounds. The desire to train after any marathon, particularly an overwhelmingly emotional one like Boston, will likely be small. It’s normal. You feel like you’re in a rut and […]

Tweet In just a few days, Strength Running will turn four years old. What started as a little running blog that nobody read has grown into one of the largest running blogs on the web.

Over a year ago […]

Tweet It’s true: last Sunday, I won the Potomac River Run Marathon in 2:50:27. Before you think that this is super impressive, know that it was a small local race capped at a mere 350 runners. So I didn’t exactly win a major race… Now, race reports can be valuable when they illustrate some key […]

Tweet Marathon Monday is coming! On April 15, tens of thousands of runners will line up in Hopkinton to run Boston, the world’s greatest marathon. But the real event the media is jacked up about is the meetup I’m hosting on Saturday before the race. I just got off the phone with Brian Williams and […]

Finally, I’m thrilled to announce that the Strength Running Boot Camp – a 4-week, step-by-step course to develop consistent running into a habit that sticks – is now accepting new members! This is for runners who need a little extra help with making running something you “just do,” instead of constantly planning your […]

Tweet Author Erica Jong said, “The trouble is, if you don’t risk anything, you risk even more.” In running, the biggest risk is not resolving something that can be easily resolved. For a coach like me, it’s difficult to see all the problems that runners are having. It’s like your friend who’s in a terrible […]
