RE: Any one else wish they never joined Strava?
+1 - It's pretty stressful and I've questioned why I used it at times.

If you are part of clubs or challenges, there are always people trying to beat you on the leaderboards.

you're average pace for the week is displayed-- do an easy run and it goes up.

if you decide to do a loop you commonly do at an easy pace it gives you a sad graph showing you're going slower than average

If you do a race and it doesn't go well, everyone gets to see it.

Going private is a great idea. you can invite a couple of running buddies who you know well and keep the rest out. Or you can get rid of it entirely.
