As a cyclist, runner, and a person into technology, it is difficult not to be attracted to Strava. With Strava's open API, I immediately wanted to access my data and find ways to work with it. I started with putting together a simple API wrapper in Coldfusion and am now working it into a Mura CMS plugin for storing and displaying data on my own site.
I've been wanting to work with the Strava API to gain access to my running and cycling data that I store on the service. I did a quick search for a Coldfusion based api wrapper, but was unable to find anything. So, I started to put together my own Strava V3 API wrapper written in Coldfusion.
Kim and I both decided to do the New Year's Eve 2 mile Prediction run to close out the running year. I predicted a 2 mile time of 15:25 and ended up running a flat 15:00. I always seem to push a little harder when around others and it is interesting to run without the Garmin watch which provides instant feedback at all times.
Looking for inspiration to get out and take some photos? I'm always excited about photography after checking out the Canon DSLR Owners group on Flickr.
I've been slacking on my running lately and have been hoping to get back on track. I also wanted to find a new activity to help keep my fitness where it should be in the winter, so I decided to give nordic skiing a try.
