I think having the ability to maintain our digital legacy on Strava is important for all athletes. 

I would like a way for my Strava posts to continue to exist even after I am gone. I do not want my account to be deleted after a long period of inactivity. We should be able to manage our preferences on Strava. Some athletes may prefer for their accounts to remain private or be deleted. Strava is a fitness journal that can be passed down to family. 

This can be similar to Google's Inactivity Manager which gives access to a trusted family or friend to download the data after incapacity or death. Deletion is an issue for me because my old data on the original version of Nike Run Club was deleted after a period of inactivity. I want the ability to choose what happens to my data.

Thank you for considering!
