About Jason Fitzgerald
I started Strength Running in 2010 because I knew I could help runners avoid the mistakes that nearly sidelined my own running. After finishing the 2008 New York City 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 major injury since 2009. I’ve since run more than ever and ran a 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 the 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 was the 2017 Men’s Running Magazine Influencer of the Year and I’ve written for PodiumRunner, Runner’s World, Active, MapMyRun, The Art of Manliness, Lifehacker, and others.
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 amazing wife and three children.
