Another reason to #justshowup (YEG)

A love letter:

Dear tagging crew,

Thank you for sacrificing your workout to breath in paint fumes.

Thank you for your precise stencil placement.

Thank you for the care you show to the brand-new-tags-still-on-tops and the well-worn tops.

Thank you for your efficiency, completing all of the tops before time was called.

Thank you for squatting and stretching your hamstrings for 30 minutes.

Thank you for each piece of grassroots gear you created for your November Project Canada family!

Love, your November Project Canada tribe

This morning, not due to paint fumes we added to the air, the sun was a brilliant glowing ball of pink. Stunning views of it could be seen from the tagging pits to the top of the hill. I hope each of you took the time to admire its beauty because as much as we try to capture it in a photo, a photo will never do it justice. Also, you never know when it will disappear forever. Another reason you just had to be there!

Also, did you see the hot air balloon?? So cool!
