Strengthen Your Stride has partnered with Destination Marathons to offer you run coaching at a discount when added to your Philadelphia Marathon Package!
My name is Karen Dunn and I am the owner and coach of Strengthen Your Stride. I am an elite master’s runner in the Philadelphia area. You can read more about my background under Meet Your Coach. I have partnered with Destination Marathons to bring you, what we hope is – your best race experience!
When you add run coaching to your Destination Marathon checkout process I will:
- Contact you to discuss your running background and goals for the race.
- Create a training program that includes Jack Daniel’s VDOT training strategies, and your calculated training paces based on your goals and current fitness level.
I will upload your training on a weekly basis to Final Surge:
- Final Surge is a training calendar where you will see what your workouts are each day, and what paces you should be training at for each workout.
- This application allows me to see data from your runs including – heart rate, cadence, elevation, pace, and more. This data enables me to see your progress and adjust your workouts/paces as needed based on how you are responding to training. Talk about individualized!
- I will comment on some of your workouts, and read and respond to any comments you make here also. I am also available to my athletes via email or text.
Through this experience you can:
- Connect with other runners training for the Philadelphia Marathon through a private Facebook group.
- Learn race strategies, fueling for your workouts/race, and developing mental strength.
- Enhance your performance through basic strength training exercises.
- Recover and stay healthy throughout training.

After your first month you will receive an invoice from Strengthen Your Stride for $120 / month and can choose to continue or stop training with me at any time – no contracts!
