Today was the coldest day of 2013. With a few new faces in the crowd and a few inches of ice and snow covering the entire stadium, we hit the Charles River path to do a simple loop. For future reference, it will be very helpful to learn the names of the bridges and the sides of the river* because both Bojan and I will be using these “loops” as a constant backup for unsafe stadium days and our lingo WILL be weird sounding. When we return to this loop or any other along the way, always know that you can/should take the option of doing a second or third loop.
Today’s November Project #PositivityAward goes to all members who came out today. That’s right, the entire tribe that formed this morning at the stadium, in the dark, to get in a workout in any condition, earned the high honors. Congrats to those who were with us – Please post your name in the COMMENTS section below.
Remember that this time of year there are tons of fakers lining up at elyptical machines around the city. They plop away with their headphones and glossy People Magazines. They are not having anywhere near as much fun as we are. They are not getting half as fit while burning twice as much time. They exchange zero hugs. And in a few short weeks they’ll be back in bed and back into skipping workouts. YOU are driving a new culture and movement each and every time you join the tribe. You smile, look, race, train, and remain at a high level.
Keep recruiting this time of year so that we can continue to change the way Boston thinks about fitness, community, and the cost of a great booty (#FREE).
