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’s 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 but most importantly provide actionable, proven advice to get you results.
And The Strength Running Podcast features some of the biggest stars in running from 3 x Olympian Shalane Flanagan, author Matt Fitzgerald, and World Silver Medalist Nick Symmonds.
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.
Runners on the team are introduced to this philosophy in an extensive email course (free) that shows them how to improve their finish times while preventing more injuries.
About Jason Fitzgerald
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 Running for Health and Happiness. Both books were #1 best-sellers in the running category on Amazon.
I’m a part of the Greatist Expert Network and have written for publications like Competitor Magazine, Runner’s World, 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.
