Ready to Run: The state of eupho­ria expe­ri­enced by many while run­ning is called a “run­ner’s high.” Whether you pound the pave­ment or log high-alti­tude moun­tain miles, run­ning is a sport that offers great reward and requires lit­tle gear. How­ev­er, the wrong gear can quick­ly turn a run­ner’s high into a run­ner’s low. Get your fix with Men’s and Wom­en’s shoes and appar­el from Saucony, Inov‑8, Hoka OneOne, Craft, & more. 

 

 

 

 

NRG Bar: A bad ener­gy bar can ruin a great day out. Say no to fla­vor­less gut-bombs and eat a bar that is made with whole­some ingre­di­ents like oats, figs, dates, and ground flax.

Fea­tured fla­vors are Choco­late Chip, Cran­ber­ry Almond, Lemo­ny Lemon, and Pump­kin Ginger.

 

Salomon Appar­el, Socks, & Footwear: Salomon was found­ed in 1947 in the heart of the French Alps, the birth­place of mod­ern alpin­ism. Dri­ven by pas­sion for ski­ing and design inno­va­tion, Fran­cois Salomon and his son George designed and per­fect­ed many of the first mod­ern ski bind­ings. The com­pa­ny has since earned a rep­u­ta­tion for excel­lence in design­ing goods for oth­er out­door activ­i­ties, expand­ing its line to include every­thing from trail run­ning footwear to tech­ni­cal appar­el and socks. Today at The Clymb, we’re excit­ed to be offer­ing Men’s and Wom­en’s Salomon footwear, socks, and tech­ni­cal appar­el at mem­ber-exclu­sive pricing.

Plant­i­ng The Seeds: Did you know? On August 9 (that’s today!), 1907, the first ever Scout­ing encamp­ment came to a con­clu­sion on Brownsea Island in Eng­land, set­ting the stan­dard for future Scouts across the globe. Dur­ing the course of the camp, boys par­tic­i­pat­ed in activ­i­ties like camp­ing, obser­va­tion, wood­craft, chival­ry, life­sav­ing, and patri­o­tism. Founder Robert Baden-Pow­ell start­ed the orga­ni­za­tion to help sup­port young peo­ple in their phys­i­cal, men­tal, and spir­i­tu­al devel­op­ment so that they can play con­struc­tive roles in soci­ety. His efforts kicked off the Scout Move­ment that would even­tu­al­ly become a non-gov­ern­men­tal inter­na­tion­al orga­ni­za­tion with over 41-mil­lion members.

Chop­pin’ ‘Round the World: Did you know? On July 22 (that’s today!), 1983, entre­pre­neur and founder of Aus­tralian Geo­graph­ic mag­a­zine Dick Smith com­plet­ed the first-ever solo heli­copter flight around the world. The jour­ney took him 11 months, which might sound daunt­ing but could be con­sid­ered leisure­ly when com­pared to the 28 days it took H. Ross Per­ot Jr. (yup, the son of Texas gazil­lion­aire Ross Per­ot) and his team to accom­plish the same feat in 1982. Heli­copter round-the-world flights are impres­sive but seem to be a bat­tle only the wealthy can fight. For exam­ple, both Smith and Per­ot hired ocean-going sea ves­sels to wait for them in the Pacif­ic for refu­el­ing. If you want some­thing a lit­tle more down-to-earth to cel­e­brate today, it’s George Clin­ton’s 71st birth­day. Spin around like a heli­copter. Feel the funk.

Craft: In the begin­ning, Craft founder Anders Bengts­son spent an inor­di­nate amount of time look­ing at his under­wear. After heavy exer­cise ses­sions out­side his home in Borås, Swe­den, Bengsts­son would weigh his skivvies and use a mois­ture gauge to mea­sure how sweaty they were. He used his research to devel­op the ide­al lay­er to wear next to the skin—a gar­ment that trans­ports mois­ture out­wards with as lit­tle absorp­tion into the fibers as pos­si­ble. The result­ing brand, Craft, is now a glob­al leader in peak-per­for­mance ath­let­ic appar­el. Today on The Clymb, we’re offer­ing Men’s and Women’s Craft cycling, run­ning, and fit­ness appar­el, for mem­ber-exclu­sive pricing.

Pike’s Peak Push: Did you know? Any­one who’s been to Col­orado Springs, Colo. will have noticed Pike’s Peak loom­ing mas­sive in the near dis­tance. The east­ern­most 14’er in the U.S., Pike’s Peak is named for Zebu­lon Mont­gomery Pike, who on this day in 1805 set off on his soon-to-be famous expe­di­tion to explore the Amer­i­can South­west. In 1806, Pike failed to climb the icon­ic peak that now bears his name. His team was ill-equipped for the attempt, wear­ing only light over­alls and no socks. Their jour­ney through the South­west end­ed some­what abrupt­ly after two years, when the men were cap­tured by Span­ish author­i­ties in north­ern New Mexico.

The Buz­zard’s Trea­sure: Did you know? On July 7 (that’s today!) 1730, the cit­i­zens of Saint Denis, Reunion turned out to watch the hang­ing of a noto­ri­ous pirate. Lit­tle did the island-dwellers know, they were about to wit­ness the spark that set off one of the great­est buried trea­sure leg­ends of all time. The pirate being led to the gal­lows was named Olivi­er Lev­asseur. But he was bet­ter known to the assem­bled mass­es by his mon­ick­er, ‘La Bouche,’ (The Buz­zard) because of the feroc­i­ty with which he attacked his tar­gets. La Bouche earned the rope that was being fas­tened around his neck through years of pira­cy, includ­ing the cap­ture of a ship car­ry­ing the equiv­a­lent of over $100,000,000 in coins and pre­cious gems. Accord­ing to leg­end, just before the hang­man slipped the noose around La Bouche’s neck, the pirate tore off the neck­lace he was wear­ing and threw it into the crowd, exclaim­ing, “Find my trea­sure, ye who may under­stand it!” The neck­lace con­tained a 17-line cryp­togram. Ever since that day, near­ly 300 years ago, trea­sure hunters have been re-trac­ing La Rouche’s foot­steps, try­ing to break his code.

Mid­sum­mer Night’s Meme: Did you know? Today is the sum­mer sol­stice, the longest day of the year. For thou­sands of years, dif­fer­ent cul­tures have cel­e­brat­ed the day and passed their tra­di­tions on to future gen­er­a­tions who have tweaked it appro­pri­ate­ly to fit their needs. Most­ly their cel­e­bra­tions involved drink­ing and feast­ing and light­ing stuff on fire. Ancient pagans loved to par­ty as much as the next cul­ture. They referred to the sum­mer sol­stice as Mid­sum­mer and would cel­e­brate by build­ing gigan­tic bon­fires and get­ting drunk on mead before jump­ing through them. The goal was­n’t to be bro­tas­tic. The men and women believed that their crops would grow as high as they were able to jump. It did­n’t work. The mead did though! Do you have any plans for ye olde longest day of the year?

From now on, when some­body waves the blue and yel­low, the flag is going to remind you of styl­ish pro­tec­tion gear from POC and fit-focused per­for­mance fit­ness appar­el from Craft. How do you like them meatballs?

Here’s some more info on today’s fea­tured brands:

POC: Swe­den-based POC devel­ops styl­ish per­son­al pro­tec­tive gear for grav­i­ty sports ath­letes. Head­quar­tered in Salt­sjobaden out­side of Stockholm—a cen­ter for research and devel­op­ment in the areas of safe­ty, med­i­cine, and healthcare—the com­pa­ny is able to tap some of Europe’s lead­ing experts to help with prod­uct devel­op­ment. POC then straps its ath­letes into the gear and has them put it to the test and rec­om­mend changes. Next, the POC design team goes to work to ensure the prod­ucts are as exquis­ite as they are safe. The end result is a line of light­weight, high per­for­mance gear with ground­break­ing design that meets the high stan­dards of pro­fes­sion­al ath­letes and med­ical experts. Look good while pro­tect­ing your pre­cious parts with POC hel­mets, gog­gles, sun­glass­es, & more, avail­able today at The Clymb for mem­ber-exclu­sive pricing.

Free Fallin’: Did you know? On April 19 (that’s today!), 1987, a real-life res­cue that seems out of the pages of a graph­ic nov­el took place in the Ari­zona skies. While mov­ing into posi­tion for a for­ma­tion drop, sky­div­er Deb­bie Williams col­lid­ed with anoth­er sky­div­er. The impact knocked her out. When Gre­go­ry Robert­son noticed his col­league tum­bling to the ground, he did what any rea­son­able super­hero would in that situation—he tucked his arms to his sides and went into a 200-mph free-fall to catch up. At 3,500 feet, with the red Ari­zona desert get­ting clos­er by the sec­ond, Robert­son reached Williams. Pulling out of his dive, Robert­son propped the uncon­scious woman into an upward posi­tion, yanked her rip­cord, and then opened his own para­chute. Williams land­ed hard on her back and was rushed to the hos­pi­tal. She sur­vived the inci­dent. Mild-man­nered Robert­son lat­er told the New York Times it was “just anoth­er day of skydiving.”
