Beyond the 30 minutes (YEG)

I don’t know about you but I am still fired up from this morning. You’d think one would want to crash after an early morning session of Commonwealth Stairs and yet, all day, I have felt energized, inspired, and positive. & I have been sharing the energy that we created all day!!

I am continually reminded of the gifts NP has brought into my life. Today was one of those moments. You know the ones. The moments when you look out in awe at the community we have become. The community that welcomes everyone. The community that thrives on positivity. The community that challenges one another to push further than they thought possible. The community that holds each other accountable and supports one another. The community to embraces happiness and one another.

It was a powerful moment to stand in front of the amazing sea of people who gathered this morning and lead the bounce. I felt so much pride seeing the stairs filled with movement and the group photo that almost took up an entire section. Co-leading November Project is a great honour. I have said it many times and maintain that being a co-leader of NP in Edmonton is the greatest gig around. And yet none of it is possible without the collective. Each of you made this morning excellent. Each of you is responsible for the pure joy I feel in my heart today. For that I am grateful.

Thank you! I can’t wait to recreate this feeling again Friday!

#justshowup 6 AM

  • Friday – Walterdale Hill
  • Monday – Sunrise 6K – Meet at the Intersection of River Valley Road and 105th Street


With all of those who chose to be on the stage today, I expect a lot of submissions from the tribe for our Lead the Bounce Contest!

  • Create a video that is no longer than 1 minute, letting us know why you’d be great at leading the bounce.
  • DM it to us on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. (If it’s on instagram, make sure you set it so we can watch it multiple times.)
  • Do this before May 20th.
  • If your video is funny/entertaining/ridiculous/weird enough, we’ll let you lead a Monday bounce. Our favourite guest bounce from the summer (based on completely subjective criteria) will get an encore performance at the stadium in August.

Until next time…SMILE! J
