I Want You To Run Easier, Faster & More Consistently Than Ever
Since 2010, I’ve helped tens of thousands of runners with their training. And beginners are often stuck in a rut, wondering if running will get any easier or if it will always be so hard.
And I’ve heard many runners with similar struggles:
“I struggle with running often enough to increase my stamina and speed.”
“How do I do speed work? When am I ready for it in the first place?”
“I need help believing in myself… whenever I start running more, I get injured!”
“I’m a complete beginner and have no idea where to start. Help!”
Why Is Mainstream Advice So Harmful?
Have you ever been confused by a free training plan you downloaded online?
Just look at why this plan doesn’t work:
If you’re a beginner runner, you can see how this plan is confusing and only sets you up to fail.
Don’t take it from me. Listen to other new runners:
“I’m running the most consistent mileage I ever have in my life. I now know how to structure a workout and a program by myself, which were goals going into the program. After seeing what I can do in 14 weeks, I’m motivated to run longer and faster. You present the information in such a clear, concise, specific, and consistent fashion. It’s easy for me as a beginner because I don’t have to be confused by different opinions, and everything I have read by you makes perfect sense. Thanks again!” – Stephanie
It’s my job to help runners improve. And I refuse to let you fall prey to this misleading – and often dangerous – running advice.
What's Important for New Runners?
Instead of being confused, you should be THRILLED to start running.
2. Simple Instructions (the plan must be easy to follow)
The worst thing for a beginner is heading out for a run… and having no idea what to do.
3. Coaching Guidance For Your Toughest Questions
A simple, flexibile training plan is great. But that’s not the only thing you need to succeed as a runner.
“This is only the beginning. I now have new goals that I want to accomplish. I’ve planned next year’s races and each one is a stepping stone to getting better. “
“My body felt better, my injuries were fading, and I began to think of running more as a lifestyle rather than a hobby.”

Got Questions? I Have Answers!
I can only run for about a minute. Is this too advanced?
Not at all. In fact, you’re exactly the type of runner this program was designed for! We have multiple training plans designed for people who’ve never run a step or can only finish about a mile.
How much time do I need to complete this program?
The training plans range from about two hours of exercise per week to five hours depending on your fitness level, goals, and ability.
I want to run a trail race - is Project: Runner a good fit for me?
Yes! Whether you’d like to run road races or trails, the fundamentals of running remain the same. Just use our guidance for how to run trails and you’ll have everything you need.
I've already run a few 5k's. Is this program too easy for me?
Probably. If you can run a 5k, then this program isn’t right for you.
Do I need a gym membership or exercise equipment?
Nope! We understand that not every runner has access to a gym or advanced equipment – so we don’t require it.
"What if I don't love Project: Runner?"
My guarantee is simple: if you’re not happy, then I’m not happy.
