I’m not a big Strava user. Unlike Mr. O’Leary I don’t have a cult following in the app (disclaimer: this is 100% an assumption with no research done). I prefer to just get outside and run. I don’t want to know that I was faster today or slower today. Guessing slower anyway. I don’t need CRs when I can just pick someone out in front of me and try to race ahead of them.
Look at me all high and mighty. I don’t need your Strava Strava Man. Today was no different. I ran from Kate’s house to Lyon St. steps. No Strava. I ran up the steps to the top where everyone was leaving their stuff. No Strava. I high fived for 30 minutes straight. No Strava. Sidenote: have you ever high fived Will Oberle? Kid gives vigorous high fives. Stay aware.
Midway through the workout, George, a traverbaler, asked me what the elevation gain was on this behemoth set of steps. Of course I had no idea. I gave George my phone and said, feel free to Strava it to find out. A few minutes later George reemerged at the top of the steps and handed me back my phone. But you guessed it, no Strava. He hadn’t hit record and there was no data to share. Poor guy had to go back down and back up again. And that’s where this came from:
And believe me, people were really impressed with my .2 mile run.
I just want to say thank you to everyone who thought I’d be capable of such a fast run. But really all the credit goes to George.
Have a great weekend. No Strava.Share via socials:
