Talk about first for me. Ran over a half marathon (13.1 miles), got my climbing badge, and am 0.1 km under 200km goal.
I am not a young thing. I could not do this when I was in best of shape. In 2016 when I decided that I was fat, and I was going to lose weight to be healthy walking a few miles a day was an accomplishment.
I have some fanticy accomplishements that I wan to do: 5K, 10K, half marathon, Triautholon. You know what? They do not seem too inimidating like they did in 2016. I just need to sign up and participate.
It is funny to me, but the badges on strava do have meaning. You do not get them for showing up, they are earned by doing.
