Cred­it: Saucony on Facebook

Last week, after plen­ty of Face­book fan antic­i­pa­tion, Saucony revealed the details of their Find Your Strong Project. Inspired by the idea that we all get stronger when we run and share what moti­vates us, Saucony is encour­ag­ing peo­ple to share pho­tos and videos that cap­ture their “strong.” Com­mu­ni­ty votes deter­mine the best sub­mis­sions, and win­ners will receive Saucony footwear.

In the first part of the project, Saucony calls on fans to sub­mit close-ups of their “strong face” either before, dur­ing, or after a work­out. Saucony hopes that the project will pro­vide inspi­ra­tion or a chal­lenge for run­ners every­where. View some of the ear­ly entries here.

Per­haps no event requires run­ners to find their strong more than The Boston Marathon. Saucony invites you to kick off the marathon this week­end with an evening of run­ning inspi­ra­tion. An all-star pan­el of ath­letes includ­ing Bill Rodgers, Mark Her­zlich, and Karen Smy­ers will share sto­ries of find­ing their strong against seem­ing­ly insur­mount­able odds. Are you going to be in town for the race? If so, the event takes place at The Boston Cen­ter for the Arts on Fri­day, April 13th at 6:30pm. Reg­is­tra­tion clos­es Thurs­day, April 12th.

You can find your strong in Saucony footwear in today’s men’s and women’s footwear events.
