Apr 05, 2021

Jason Fitzgerald is the creator and founder of Strength Running. As a USA Track & Field certified coach, he’s helped thousands of runners race faster, get stronger, and prevent injuries since 2010.

Jason has been running competitively since 1998 and during that time he’s run a 2:39 marathon, beat almost 17,000 other runners to win a Warrior Dash obstacle race, and won many other 5ks, half marathons, and marathons.

Jason is the host of the Strength Running podcast and is a member of the Greatist Expert Network, and his book Running for Health & Happiness debuted as an instant Amazon bestseller.

Jason is the 2017 Men’s Running Influencer of the Year and my coaching advice has been featured in most major media publications like Runner’s World, Competitor, Forbes, Lifehacker, Health Magazine, Business Insider, Fitness and many more.
