Some of us thought we were done with the stairs after the wicked stadium workout last week, some of us were wrong. What a great, hard, goofy morning. My highlight was our controlled chaos back to back best friend race. I thought this would be the most dangerous part of the workout with the potential of people running head first into one another at an all time high. I was wrong, cue the museum stairs. Not one, not two but three people fell up those stairs today. Being someone who has done this already this summer, I feel your pain my friends. No broken bones were had. Hope all bruises, scrapes and cuts heal quickly!
We thought we were done the stairs after a continuous 10 minute loop, but nope, MORE STAIRS. Finishing with a stair-sprint burnout was a fire finisher and you all brought that fire. Carter didn’t want to be shown up by super cute Bishop so he made sure to jump in for a race up those stairs, and he crushed it. You all crushed it. Good job team!
This Friday we will be at Fort Whyte Alive for our Sunrise 6K, NOT the Legislature. We will meet at the Alloway Centre. Show up before 6:14 to park and sign a waiver. We will bounce at 6:14 sharp, quick warm up and get to racing! Remember, there are two pairs of brand new Brooks Running Shoes on the line. You get to choose your own style, colour and size and have them shipped to you! The shoes won’t necessarily be going to the fastest finishers. We will be getting creative, so #justshowup to see how you can win!
We have officially booked our annual Dragon Boat Pop Up Workout, mark your calendars for Friday, August 16th. This is always a favourite event and we love seeing big numbers out. Bring your friends, bring your mom, bring your dad! More details to follow.
Last Friday, a big crew of NPers went back to Investors Group Field to cheer the Blue Bombers to their 5th victory of the season, with a final score of 31- 1 against the Ottawa Redblacks. This is pretty exciting because that makes the Bombers 5-0. The last time the Bombers started a season with 5-0 was in 1960, That’s history my friends! After the game, audience members were allowed down on the turf and some NPers got the chance to meet and chat with Blue Bomber, John Rush. A certain someone was even lucky enough to test out the plane! GO
Shabooyah this week was handed from Melanie Noble to Katrina Froese. Katrina is a constant positive energy at NP. She shows up all seasons, all weather. I believe this has to do with the fact that she is a seasoned cross-country skier and has embraced Winnipeg Weather to its fullest. Katrina, we are glad you’re here! Katrina actually works at Fort Whyte, where we will be racing this Friday. Even though she is unable to make the race, we will enjoy her workplace for her!
Don’t forget to bring a shirt to tag and a friend to race for PR Day next week!
That’s it, that’s all,
