If you conquer this challenge, you’ll have to upload the data to Strava by December 12 along with your info (there’s a form on this page to do so). Then, you’ll get an email from the Strava team by December 15 with a code for you to get your shoes from newbalance.com. ANY pair of New Balance; because Strava and New Balance know that just because something’s on sale doesn’t mean it’s the best pair for you.
