The One about Strava

I enjoy running.  I enjoy cycling.  I enjoying working out. But unlike my younger years of running for football or wrestling in high school or even my earlier years in college, a lot of my running after afterward were done indoors.  Inside the gym, inside the house and then I stopped.

The watch is available on its own or you can get it with a heart rate strap, I decided that I would get it by itself for now.  The watch comes with a charger for the watch ( and a […]
