But in two weeks this January, Strava reached a new level as far as challenges and awesome go... They partnered up with Lululemon. The Lululemon 40|80 Challenge.
So they had badges at 40K and 80K over a two week period. Above, you can see that I earned both of them. I heard there were going to be prizes. I was thinking socks. A headband. Maybe some apparel based on a random draw or for the most mileage or something.
Because you only earn mileage toward this with data to back it up, I only made it JUST BARELY to the 80K. Any treadmill miles I ran during this two week period did not count. But I hit 80, and I am glad.
When the challenge was over, I got an email from Strava/lulu congratulating me for completing the challenge and saying to go into your local store to collect your prize.
So yeah... that is $128 worth of Lulu gear that they gave to anyone who completed their challenge. Yes, you had to select black, but WHO CARES? I own almost zero pair of black shorts because those are consistently kept season to season, so they never go on sale!
