I am a runner since high school, and constantly joins the marathon events around my area. Don’t get me wrong, I am not the professional runner, and I never win any prize from running. I am just a regular runner who enjoys the running process, keeping myself fit, happy and allow me to explore experience.
I started using Strava app back in 2015 when I join my friends for the FULL MARATHON (42.195km) for the Penang Bridge marathon. I use the Strava to tracking my running activities, my pace, heart rate, the elevation, GAP, distance and the time. That is the time how the Strava takes my running to next level.
Below is the Strava captured map and the running details during my Penang Bridge Full Marathon 2015:
Strava allow me to compare my pace/time/heart rate, segment by segment with my peers. Below is the Leaderboards that compared the segment by segment of the full marathon run with my peers. I have the slowest pace among my peers 🙁
Fast forward, I came to Singapore for my career exposure 2016, I am still using Strava to track my running details.
This time I bought the Fitbit Surge to tracking my activities and also Heartrate (HR). The Fitbit able to integrate with Strava and generate the running data for me.
Check out my running details using Fitbit with Strava in the evening run at Marina Bay:

More tracking for my recently Standard Chartered Run 2016 with Strava:
We have 64 runners currently and more than 63 activities in just 2 weeks time. Each of us able to contribute to the group running distance and compete for each other.
I am somehow contributing above average of the distance compared to the other runners:
Overall, Strava help runner like me to track the runner details and put us the group to compare and compete for each other. The Strava app able to sync with other apps too, such at Fitbit.
