Bal­loon­ists Con­quer Chal­lenge, Hot Dogs: Did you know? On August 17th (that’s today!), 1978, a six-day odyssey to com­plete the first trans-Atlantic bal­loon voy­age came to a suc­cess­ful end when The Dou­ble Eagle II, an 11-sto­ry, heli­um-filled mon­stros­i­ty, plopped down in a bar­ley field out­side of Paris, France. The bal­loon had set sail from Preque Isle, Maine 137 hours pri­or. From 1859 until the flight of The Dou­ble Eagle II in 1978, there were 17 attempts to con­quer the Atlantic, result­ing in the deaths of sev­en bal­loon­ists. But that did­n’t stop Dou­ble Eagle II pilots Ben Abruz­zo, Max­ie Ander­son, and Lar­ry New­man, who sur­vived on hot dogs and canned sar­dines for the dura­tion of the 3,233-mile flight.

 

Cel­e­brat­ing with FUN. after 13.1

I am not a “run­ner.” I have nev­er claimed to be. I dread the side pains, shin splints, and short­ness of breath that come from pound­ing the pave­ment mile after mile after mile. But for some rea­son that I have yet to fig­ure out, I signed up for a half-marathon.

As I’ve grown old­er, an increas­ing num­ber of my friends have become addict­ed to some­thing they like to refer to as a runner’s high. After years of doing my best to ignore their con­stant chat­ter about it, I final­ly broke down and asked myself, What do you have to lose? Then I read about the Sea­wheeze lul­ule­mon Half Marathon and fig­ured that if I was ever going to run 13.1 miles in one fell swoop, I might as well cou­ple it with a vaca­tion to make it worth the pain.

This year’s Sea­wheeze was the first in what will be an annu­al half marathon held in Van­cou­ver, British Colum­bia. The event is part of lul­ule­mon’s mis­sion to cel­e­brate their home­town in “the sweati­est, most awe­some way possible—13.1 miles of beach­es, moun­tain views, and more.” Gor­geous scenery, yoga, waf­fle brunch­es, and a get­away to Canada—what more could a gal ask for? I con­vinced my boyfriend and five cowork­ers to join me on what I promised would be a week­end full of fun and FUN.—with a quick work­out thrown in.

Rep­re­sent­ing The Clymb with fin­ish­er’s medals

Our Sea­wheeze week­end was bet­ter than we could have imag­ined. Despite the lack of suf­fi­cient train­ing for some of us, we all fin­ished with a time that we are proud of. The course was beautiful—winding through down­town Van­cou­ver, and along the sea­wall that bor­ders Stan­ley Park. The cheer squads rivaled those found at the World Cup, the aid sta­tion logis­tics were smooth, and the post-race brunch was delec­table. Despite my exhaus­tion, I man­aged to cross the fin­ish line to a group hug with my coworkers.

A spe­cial thanks to Saucony for the great run­ning gear!

After our brief cel­e­bra­tion, I slumped to the ground. Around me, some 7,000 par­tic­i­pants waved their hands to upbeat music in cel­e­bra­tion of com­plet­ing the run. Beyond, the ocean stretched sparkling and gigan­tic into the dis­tance, the salty breeze gar­nish­ing my sweat-coat­ed lips and mak­ing my per­son­al vic­to­ry taste that much more vivid. My legs were too sore to move, but my heart and mind were full of hap­pi­ness and accom­plish­ment. I’m hap­py to say that at that moment, I expe­ri­enced my first run­ner’s high. And I’m addicted.

All of us on the Clymb team want to offer a huge thanks to Saucony for out­fit­ting us for the Sea­wheeze! Gear up for your own chal­lenge with Saucony here.

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.

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.

Cred­it: Saucony on Facebook

Last week, after plen­ty of Face­book fan antic­i­pa­tion, Saucony revealed the details of their Find Your Strong Project. Inspired by the idea that we all get stronger when we run and share what moti­vates us, Saucony is encour­ag­ing peo­ple to share pho­tos and videos that cap­ture their “strong.” Com­mu­ni­ty votes deter­mine the best sub­mis­sions, and win­ners will receive Saucony footwear.

In the first part of the project, Saucony calls on fans to sub­mit close-ups of their “strong face” either before, dur­ing, or after a work­out. Saucony hopes that the project will pro­vide inspi­ra­tion or a chal­lenge for run­ners every­where. View some of the ear­ly entries here.

Per­haps no event requires run­ners to find their strong more than The Boston Marathon. Saucony invites you to kick off the marathon this week­end with an evening of run­ning inspi­ra­tion. An all-star pan­el of ath­letes includ­ing Bill Rodgers, Mark Her­zlich, and Karen Smy­ers will share sto­ries of find­ing their strong against seem­ing­ly insur­mount­able odds. Are you going to be in town for the race? If so, the event takes place at The Boston Cen­ter for the Arts on Fri­day, April 13th at 6:30pm. Reg­is­tra­tion clos­es Thurs­day, April 12th.
