Fuel + Fire (#4): Stick With It

In a dailymission last year on favorite motivational quotes, DMers Chelsie and Molly E. picked Winston Churchill’s rousing “Never, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, give up.” (Also repeated as “Never never never give up.”) The full Churchill speech was given October 29, 1941, while visiting Harrow School after the Blitz during World War II. Snip: But for everyone, surely, what we have gone through in this period, this is the lesson: Never give in. Never give in. Never, never, never, … Continue reading

Fuel + Fire (#3): Fear Not

“I am not afraid.” Those are the words stamped on a necklace worn by Olympic runner Kara Goucher. In a blog post last spring, she reflected on fear, saying: “No matter who you are or what your passion is, trying to do something as well as you can possibly do it is challenging, and with challenges comes fear.” The elite runner certainly knew a thing or two about the matter. Two weeks later she’d line up to race in the … Continue reading

dailymission redux: DMers design (stellar) shoes

Last week, Nike launched a new shoe. From New York to Florida to Maryland and beyond, sole-less earthlings invaded shopping malls across the nation. Brushing past police braced in riot gear, these frenzied folks were on a singular mission: Grab the Galaxy (basketball shoe). Jumping Jupiter. The stellar kicks are apparently so out-of-this-world that even Nike itself doesn’t mention the supra natural things on its company site.  (Check it out for yourself. Search for ‘Galaxy’ over at Nike.com and see if you have better luck than I … Continue reading

Fuel + Fire (#2): Mind Over Matter

When I started up casual jogging in my 20s, I was surprised how hard it was to run more than a couple of miles at a time. When I wanted to increase my distance, my body balked and screamed, “I’m tired and cranky! My [insert various body part] hurts!” Mentioning this to a girlfriend (a steady runner),  she suggested, “When you think you can’t run anymore, just keep going…” Can it really be that easy? I gave it a try. … Continue reading

Farra K. (aka Ultratrailchick)
dailymiler of the week

Farra flashing the dailymile gangster sign This week Farra K. (aka Ultratrailchick) stood out above the rest in the land of dailymileroftheweek (I think it has something to do with the fact that she came up with a gangster sign for dailymile). (KS) You’ve had a really successful 2010 with some amazing PRs. How did you handle training? (FK) This year has definitely been my PR year, and I think I have my running friends to thank for that.
