2019 At A Glance

As we’re approaching the last minutes of 2019, it’s worth looking back at all the amazing things that we experienced at NP during the past 365 days. To capture EVERY moment would be impossible as this post would never end, so if there’s a story or an experience you’d like to share, please add it in the comments. We’d like to thank all NP members for another year filled with positivity, support, and fitness. This community is stronger with you as a part of it so please keep inspiring with your actions and kindness. And to our leaders, thank you for your selflessness, energy, and dedication. You are the bloodline of November Project and we’re eternally grateful for your devotion to this movement. read more

Brooks x November Project = Awesome

Today we’re proud to announce Brooks as the official footwear and apparel sponsor of November Project. Brooks has been woven into the fabric of NP Seattle since the early days. From the CEO down to the newest hires, they celebrate the culture of bettering the world through running and movement. Based on these shared core values, it didn’t take us long to get excited about the potential of our combined reach. The Brooks influence will be multifaceted, including financial support, access to new footwear and apparel, resources for our leadership training and the annual November Project Summit, entries into Brooks-sponsored running events, and activations on a local and global level. We’re ramping up to do some very cool things together and couldn’t be more excited. read more

    PASSING OF THE TORCH: By Jimmy Webb Jr. and Manuel Gonzales

    GUEST BLOG: NOVEMBER PROJECT DALLAS

    by Manuel Gonzales and Jimmy Webb Jr.

     

    Great things come and go, but legacies last eternity. Dallas in its own unique way is an amazing place with people from all over the world. I’m not going to lie when I moved here on the 29th Day of April 2014 I was sad. I was sad to leave Boston. I was sad leaving everything I had to a city I knew nothing about (Dallas). Like any other place I’ve lived in, I fully emerged myself in the New England culture. I ate lobster rolls, steak tips, Fenway brats, and even bought Patriot’s, Redsox, Bruins, and Celtics gear (Big Deal for this sports fan). Moving to Dallas was a big step for me and I didn’t even know it. I tried my luck at finding a community all over town and it didn’t happen. I had a realization that what I was looking for didn’t exist in Dallas. When I started WERUNBIG there was only a handful of people in my Dallas contact list and with that, I knew I had a challenge ahead of me. On week two of WERUNBIGD I met a dude, this dude’s name was Jimmy Webb Jr, this is his story…

     

    {PASSING OF THE TORCH By Jimmy Webb Jr.

    This was one of those “moments.” You know, the good stuff. The stuff you remember. First time driving a car, first kiss, first class in college (or maybe you don’t remember that one… lol)This was the first time I think my boy Manny really realized he was handing over his baby to someone else. No, not the lady killer everyone knows as “Jett.” I’m talking about November Project: Dallas Chapter. You see, I met Manny the 2nd time he ever did a WeRunBigD workout – what would eventually become the NPDAL we know and love today. I saw a pic of week 1 on The Gram so I messaged him and said “what’s this?” In what I soon realized to be typical Manny fashion, he replied “#JustShowUp” Initial reaction… “who the fuck is this guy?” Second reaction… typing “ok I’m there.” To which I was immediately schooled on what a “verbal” was. So I meet Manny, shirtless Manny, and about 30 others on Ford Stadium at SMU with a couple friendgirls I brought who were marveling at the massive wings tattooed on his back. I must say it’s pretty impressive. I proceed to beast the stairs with some time to kill and get to know Manny while everyone finished up. This marked the beginning of one of the coolest friendships I’ve ever had. I mean this guy had people carry me 100 yards on my birthday 3 months in to knowing me… I’ll NEVER forget that. I’ve sweat with Manny countless times, I’ve crushed too many stairs to count with Manny, I’ve even bled my own blood in front of Manny… that’s a crazy story and got the scar to prove it!

    Day One as WERUNBIGD

    WeRunBigD (pre-NP title) fluctuates in numbers over the next 3 years and somewhere in the middle, this rambunctious little speedster named Tywon comes out! Tywon… has spunk. The smiles are never ending, the encouragement is constant, and the Tywon-Selfie thrives!

    The Tywon Selfie

     

    We grow, we fall, we grow some more, we fall some more, on and on… and on. I remember a post workout picture where there was… well it was only Manny in the pic, with the caption “The Tribe is Strong.” Then… 30 people… then 50… then 74 when the goal was 75 lol… then 105 people!!! Then Brogan comes out to officially officialize us… aaaand I was in SF lol. Got a crazy story with Josh out in SF though… so that kind of makes up for it I guess? Not really though lol. read more
