It’s hump day. Ready to get your incline on?
Big smile on my face today because I love motivational, funny or thoroughly creative running videos or ads. Esp when I have hill work.
How about you?
A recent dailymission asked, “What is your favorite YouTube video about running?”
Here, my fav and a few of yours, too. Thanks for the amazing shares, DMers! Keep ‘em coming. Keep passing them on. Each so super insightful and delightful.
First up, Kris R. posted “Human Machine,” a nicely-produced piece on ultrarunning:
Dcc tossed in a popular Nike Free ad that’s been making the rounds a lot around here lately. (Gerald and Joshua posted it, too.) “I love this video,” Dcc said. “I currently live across the country from my lovely wife as she finishes her degree and I am doing my thing in SF. She also got me sweet Frees for my birthday…just saying.” Lucky dog.
Eric posted a quirky and fun interview done at 2007′s Leadville 100 with the late Caballo Blanco (Micha True). Last line…classic goodness. What a force of nature he was.
Brad introduced his favorite by writing, “This is one of the most inspiring videos (about ANY subject) I’ve ever seen. It give you a new perspective when you think you have some hard struggles.” I couldn’t agree more. I love this athlete’s determination and spirit!
One of my besties right now was sent my way by a running pal (ty Beth). The long-form web ad for handful, a cheekily-named sports bra company, isn’t only about running.
But, I dare you not to fall in love with it, too.
Brian F. posted a clip of a sensational race that reminds us never to give up. Even when the moment looks grim, we can still rally inner resources. [YouTube's muted the audio, but it still remains a powerful piece of footage.]
Olaf invited us to see him and other German dailymilers compete at last summer’s Delmenhorst Down Under race. Great job, guys!
David shared a stoic video with a personal note: “You all know I’ve got a ton of [favorites], but not sure any move me more than this one does. Pure Inspiration. I get a tear in my eye everytime I watch this. Also reminds me alot of my late father who was a great runner. I still can see his footprints on the very roads I run today. He paved the way for me!”
Chad popped some super trail run videography (of 2011′s North Face Endurance Challenge-San Francisco) into the mix:
Mike N. closes us out with a classic Road Runner clip. Beep! Beep!
What’s your favorite running (or exercise) video on YouTube or Vimeo?
