So I have been using Strava for a while now as a means to track my running. It’s really a great tool for this and it has some added fun things to add to your running.
First off, groups and friends, there are so many groups on Strava you can join and you can create your own with friends. Great way to have some friendly running competition. There are groups for major races, so you can see everyone training for a race you are doing, it really is nice, and hey always cool to get likes on your runs
There are monthly challenges, which are some of my favorite things. A nice little boost to the usual running stuff, they don’t always have prices, but sometimes they do and that is cool. They almost always start the year off with a challenge with Lulu Lemon and you can get a decent discount on Lulu Lemon if you complete the challenge. It isn’t only for running either, they have biking challenges and climbing challenges so whatever your thing is you can track it.
Of course, if you are a runner, you have to instagram your run, I mean, of course. In strava you can add your photo and post your stats with it. so hey, now everyone knows.
Also, hooking it to your garmin is easy peesy and it auto uploads so there is nothing much you have to do other then start your watch, run, stop your watch, can’t beat that.
I am always learning something new about it as well, and I can’t wait to see what other cool things I can do with this app.
