Check out Randy over at Strength Running


A while ago Jason from strengthrunning.com reached out to Randy to work on a custom program for runners. It was hard for me to keep this under wraps until it was released, but now I can talk about it. It great to see that the need for strength training is being recognized in the running community and that the folks at Strength Running recognized that Randy is an expert in this field. Randy's programming is going to be featured this year in their year of strength.

Check out their teaser here. I think the two photos of Maggie (who just finished 3rd this weekend in the Arizona Rock 'n' Roll Half Marathon) are the only two photos in existence where she's not smiling. I know they're hoping to get Randy on a podcast soon. That will be fun, we can listen to him rant about training even while we're not at the gym.
