This morning was our coldest, weirdest, and best day yet. Worried there wouldn’t be enough PUMA training jackets to go around, we dusted off an old tradition of ours that goes back thousands of years. Each bean, either Black, White, or Garbanzo, represented a Men’s or Women’s PUMA jacket size. Beans were drawn from our traditional ziplock bag (#GrassrootsZipLockBags) at 6:30AM (the time we begin our announcements and workouts MON WED & FRI). The beans could be cashed in at the end of the workout for the PUMA gift which brought our #NP_WinterKit month to a close. Gloves, Hats, 1/4 Zips, and today’s jackets were each awarded over the last 4 weeks. Notice that the tops and jackets were all light gray and white for… you guessed it… a little future NP branding.
If you’re sad you didn’t get some gear we can only tell you to show up more, be on time, race harder, and to keep your eye out for future beans. We’re OK with racers who come early/late, do their own workout, and record what they’re up to, but the consistant, aggressive, and randomly bean’d November Project members were the ones to get paid week in and week out (and make more friends by sticking with the main group). After all, “The early on time bird gets the bean…” A huge thanks to our friends @PUMA for super-charging our anniversary month and getting even more Boston athletes interested in what we’re building during the hardest month of the year to stay in motion.
Please bring your new jackets, 1/4 zips, and whatever else to our WED & FRI sessions next week to get tagged up with our new stencils. Distributing your #NP_WinterKits kept the NP staff a little on the busy/frozen side to tag up gear and take a ton of photos. Which brings us to your…
HOMEWORK: Post your photo wearing #NP_WinterKit to our FACEBOOK wall in a yoga position of any kind. Got a bendy body like our friend Katie Lynn Murphy? Great! Show that shit OFF. Don’t have a solid practice? Don’t know ANY poses? Neither do we. Go ahead and make that shit up. If you deliver it with confidence, give it a funny fake name, and have a semi-straight face, PEOPLE WILL BELIEVE YOU KNOW WHAT YOU’RE DOING. The funnier your location the better – But you already knew that. DUE: Monday by 6:30AM.
