Strava signup

Since we will be using Strava to track our runs, I thought I should give a brief overview.

It is a GPS based running tracker.  It tracks routes, mileages, times, shoes used, and even tracks different public segments for leaderboards.  It keeps track of PRs and all that.  Its really a pretty cool site. 

It also has a social feature, where you can see all of your friends' runs and comment/like them.  My hope is that it is going to be a good tool to help our athletes be accountable to one another and to their training.  If they do their workout (even if not at practice, due to vacations, etc.) then their teammates will know it.  

The accounts are free to set up and use.  There is a premium version, which you are welcome to get.  (I dont have the preminum version myself, so I could not tell you whether it is worth it or not.  I will tell you that Ive been using it for a few years now and have loved the free version)

TO SIGN UP
  1. Create your account
  2. Each athlete account though can be set to Private or Public, so parents please be sure to set it however you are comfortable.  It does NOT need to be public for our purposes, but it can be if you are comfortable with them being a part of the larger Strava community.
  3. Search for the club, "Mustang Distance", and request to join. (It is set as a private club, so the general public does not see their activity). 
  4. If you have trouble finding the club, here is the URL for it: https://www.strava.com/clubs/150974
