There’s one company that knows the darkest days of winter more than anyone—and they want to keep running through it.
New England-based Tracksmith’s NØ DAYS ØFF is a celebration of the winter grind, when it’s difficult to get out the door. Holiday decorations are gone, and all that’s left is bleak, dark and foreboding—something to overcome and grind through. Embracing the challenge of No Days Off can help motivate, inspire or just keep you going.
“No Days Off started in 2014 as an internal project and it has turned into an annual tradition at Tracksmith,” said Matt Taylor, founder and CEO. “The concept is pretty simple: go for a run every day, rain (or snow) or shine. Whether it’s 15 minutes or 15 miles, it’s about keeping the engine running day after day after day.”
As part of NØ DAYS ØFF, Tracksmith issues our annual calendar. The poster for No Days Off (and red sharpie for crossing off days) comes with any purchase in January, but it’s also available for free (shipping not included). In addition, there’s a desk calendar version available for some added workday inspiration. Sized to fit even the smallest cubicle, it’s a letter-pressed calendar on a wooden stand.
The company also released their limited-edition black collection—top picks like Nor’Easter, Brighton Base Layer, Van Cortlandt Tanks and Shorts and Bisletts in black.
Check out the collection below—plus runners are paying tribute to the “challenge” with #NoDaysOff on Instagram.
