Don’t worry; you’re in the right place. Strength Running just got a new design!
After lots of feedback from runners on my insiders list, the final site design is ready to go. What do you think?
A huge thank you goes to Charlie at Charfish Design for his awesome work at getting this site ready to go. He was a real champ at helping me refine some of my ideas and making this site a reality. I know I was picky and changed my mind a lot, but Charlie was just exceptional to work with. If you own a website, definitely check him out as your designer/developer.
So what’s new here?
Most importantly, the site is easier to use. With a “Most Popular” section in the sidebar, an Archives page, and a Topics section in the sidebar you can find exactly what you need without too much searching.
I hope you like the cleaner design, sharper colors, and new elements that have been added. I did it just for you! There will be a few other minor changes that will happen over the next 1-2 weeks, but you may not even notice them. I just hope they’ll subtly make your stay here more enjoyable.
We’ve come a long way…
Strength Running was born in early 2010 and it’s quickly growing into one of the largest one-author running blogs on the web as far as I can tell. Here are some quick stats:
- In the last month over 40,000 runners have visited SR
- There are over 160 posts to help you get faster
- There are thousands of comments from runners like you, all sharing their experiences
- SR has appeared on a ton of sites, including No Meat Athlete, Fitness Magazine, Marathon Nation, and Naturally Engineered
- Coaching programs have expanded for whatever you need (would something else help even more?)
- I partnered with Steve Kamb of Nerd Fitness to write the Rebel Running Guide
Sure, the stats are cool. They’re great. But what I really love is the awesome feedback I’ve received from those of you who’ve become better runners. Feedback like:
“Holy cow…just went to your site & I’M LOVING IT!!! Wish I would have found it earlier.” – Rhonna
“Your ITB rehab routine is worth its weight in gold…many, many thanks!” – Elaine
No, thank you!
My goal with Strength Running is to help as many runners as possible with their goals – more enjoyment, less injuries, and faster race times. Let me know how I can help you.
I want to thank you for every retweet of a post, every submission to StumbleUpon or Reddit, and every comment you’ve made here. It truly makes my day.
If you’re new here, welcome to the team! I hope you’ll stick around – I’m sure you’ll enjoy what you see. Please let me know what you think of the new site by leaving a comment below. I try to respond to every single one.
