I’m a runner, and I just joined Strava. I regret it

Whether it’s lunchtime 5km or a half marathon event, I’ve always considered running fun. For me, running isn’t a very competitive rush: I run while listening to podcasts or audiobooks rather than music, and I often stop and stretch midway through my training if I can find a good spot.

Don’t get me wrong: I love lifting weights, but an hour’s run has a different therapeutic effect than a session at the gym downstairs, especially when the sun’s out. Running is a source of stress relief, an escape from the notifications and blue light sources that constantly encroach on my life.
