Half an hour after the workout, it was about 10 degrees warmer in Edmonton. I’m not saying that we warmed the city, but it’s a hell of a coincidence.
We are still collecting to #weatherproofYEG. There are people out there who do not have as many layers as you, and could use your help. Friday will be the last day that we will collect clothes. Bring em to the hill or to MEC.
Friday, we celebrate. MEC – 7pm. The Pint DT – 9pm.
We came, we hugged, we conquered.

After being publicly shamed on Facebook for missing November Project two weeks ago(they used my puppy picture, I mean, come on, I’m a solid 70 pounds now), I was determined to get myself and Emma to the steps. With great fortitude I arose this morning, took my morning pee on a fire hydrant (I think a golden retriever has been trying to claim it as hers, but I’ll pee twice on it tomorrow to make sure it stays in my possession), and hopped in the car to head to the Lincoln Memorial.

Also, 20 guys showed up with cases of Muscle Milk. To each his own, but for the record, DG and TG didn’t touch the stuff. We keep it all natural.
Despite the less than ideal weather, NPSF showed up in some serious numbers this morning to take down some Tabatas. If you were like me and were sorely disappointed to find out that Tabatas weren’t some sort of new and exciting Mexican breakfast dish, too bad. You instead got a healthy dose of burpees, v-ups, sergeant jumps, and a delicious side-order of planks. Oh, and don’t forget the suicides. Yeah, you heard me right, SUICIDES! We broke it down like a 1990’s gym class out there. I tried telling Laura that I was having some “female issues,” but she didn’t buy it.
THIS FRIDAY, come join us for hills. 6:22 AM in the Kezar Stadium parking lot. Drop your verbal now, drop it like a hot Tabata.
SAN DIEGO NOTES:
You know it’s gonna be a good morning when the workout starts with Early 90s Hip Hop on the boom box (well, iPod speakers…but lets just say it was a boom box, a big. boom. box.) We had our biggest group yet, 35 of you crazy mo’fos and it couldn’t have been more fun! We had people chasing dogs, baby sebastians on hills, toddlers tagging park benches…it was pure, incredible, insanity! Lessons learned at NP-SD this morning: 1. Running UP Kate Sessions hill first, is way harder during intervals (and because we love yo fine asses – that’s probably the only way it will ever be done again!) 2. San Diego still has some issue with forming straight lines and circles (I blame it on us just being so laid back) 3. LP rocks galaxy pants like pro and finally 4. McLovin is the fastest man alive. A big shout out the New Balance crew and all our newbies for helping make today one of the best Hump day workouts ever – it’s incredible to see this tribe grow, I’m definitely gonna need some new sunglasses with all this NEON!
Ya Feeling Good San Diego? Fuck Yeah!
Can’t wait to see everyone tonight at Recruiting Papers!
The tribe was audited today by Megan, a professional performance measurement analyst and Boston tribe regular. Megan endured our workout and dutifully evaluated us from her checklist of NP Norms. In an effort to get extra credit, we awkwardly sang happy birthday to her. Look for her at a future NP workout adding to her NP Passport, in which she hopes to earn tags from every tribe.
As we paint more grass roots gear, pass out our Recruiting Papers, and laugh at each other’s ‘fierce’ mug shots, the tribe continues to beautify our community.
Let’s get something straight. BG and I are about to tackle our 3rd Boston winter as a part of this crazy movement, and one thing that we notice is that as weatherproof we are, our numbers seem to suffer a little bit when the temps hit below freezing. We understand that on a dark, cold, mornings instead of working out, all you want to do enjoy the warmth and fuzziness of your bed sheets. But not this morning! You, the tribe came out strong… So strong that we thought it was August! You know there were a lot of people there when it took me solid 10 minutes just to start everyone. Keep it going friends, I promise you’ll have a blast this winter and you’ll accidentally get fit.
You probably heard about our #FREE racing event called #SceneBeSeen that sold out 400 racing spots within 90 minutes of the link going live. If you weren’t able to get the racing bib, we apologize. We didn’t anticipate that the response will be this positive and overwhelming. Many of you asked if you can just come and run the race without the bib. Let’s put it this way – the race is at the public space, and if you just happen to run around the Pleasure Bay at 6:30pm in neon/illuminated costumes, who are we to prevent you from doing it. If that still seems uncomfortable, please consider this Boston Brunch Runners event taking place at the same time, same place, with same people (they just happen to love pancakes and lobster bibs). See you on Friday in Brookline.Share via socials:
